As many of you are probably aware, actor/writer Jason Segel and writer/director Nick Stoller have been working on a screenplay for a new Muppet movie. Last year, Segel had confirmed that they were half way through a script, and more recently Segel said that the duo turned in a 114-page script to the executives at Disney. Now a source at Ain't It Cool News claims to have read their completed draft and shares some thoughts on the completed script. The project has the working title of The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time, and the script review is full of spoilers.
The basic premise is pretty close to what was revealed back in 2008 – basically a story centering on Kermit having to reunite the gang to save the studio from an evil oil tycoon. Ain't It Cool News' script review also describes many of the planned celebrity cameos, along with sharing details on some specific scenes, parodies, gags, and even what characters are (and are not) featured in the script. The reviewer (under the alias "The Great Gonzo") shares their thoughts on the script (including the good and the bad) and it is definitely full of spoilers - so if you don't want to ruin the fun of seeing the movie, I suggest simply not reading it.
Please note that the opinions in this review are merely those of one individual who read a draft of the script. The script is still very much a work-in-progress and a whole lot could change between now and when they actually start filming. However, this script review does give an idea on the direction Segel and Stoller are planning to take the characters with their script.
I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on this project as information continues to surface.
