New Details About the Next Muppets Movie

Details of the next Muppets movie, The Muppets ... Again!, have been slowly trickling out, but Kermit finally sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly to provide some deets. When asked about the plot, he responded: "The idea of this film is that our gang is on this global tour, and we’re selling out these grand theaters all over Europe — in Berlin, Madrid, London — but we sort of get into a little bit of trouble when we run across my doppleganger. He’s the world’s number one criminal, Constantine, and he happens to look an awful lot like me." Ricky Gervais will serve as Constantine's evil sidekick, while Tina Fey will play a Russian guard, and Ty Burrell an Interpol agent. Bret McKenzie will be doing the music again. The film is set to be released on March 21, 2014, and sounds like a fun time.
