Paul Rudd will not be in Muppets movie
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
So apparently Paul Rudd will not be making an appearance in the new Muppet movie, that’s a bit sad but more shocking than anything else. I thought those Apatow guys were pretty tight-knit, but maybe not. Casting and cameos have been coming in like crazy the last couple of weeks but I think it may be safe to assume that most of that is over with because filming should begin on the new Muppets film shortly (it may already be underway). The new film will be directed by James Bobin and will star Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Emily Blunt and Ricky Gervais. The film is set to open on December 25, 2011 and follows the Muppet gang as they try to save a theater from being torn down by putting on a show.
I’m bummed about Paul Rudd not being in the film but maybe there will be a sequel. I don’t think it’s too early to ask Santa for a Muppet sequel, you can never have too many Muppet movies.
