New images from the set of “THE GREATEST MUPPET MOVIE EVER MADE”. The movie is directed by James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) and co-authors Nicholas Stoller (Get Him to the Greek).
The film stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Jack Black, Ed Helms, Bret McKenzie, Eric Stonestreet , Ricky Gervais, Emily Blunt, Mickey Rooney Zach Galifianakis and with the special appearance of Lady Gaga .
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino house band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
The Muppets will be back in cinemas the next November 23, 2011.
