Shooting is set to start imminently on the new Muppets film, and Ricky Gervais has been chatting about it...

Production is due to start imminently on the follow-up to the massively successful return of The Muppets, with James Bobin back in the director’s chair. And as you more than likely already know, Ricky Gervais has signed up to play the human lead in the new movie.
