Why someone would take a perfectly good Muppet movie and add humans to it is something I'll never know, but it seems the film's screenwriter, Jason Segal, is doing just that. Aside from casting himself in the film, Segal is bringing a whole host of skinjobs with him. Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and Rashida Jones are reported very close to signing on to the project. "Adams would play Segal's girlfriend, Cooper would play the greedy villain, and Jones would play an ABC executive." The plot involves the Muppets getting their show back together in order to save a movie studio. Cooper wants to buy the studio so he can drill for oil underneath its property, but Kermit the Frog is all like, "F**k that noise, son!" Unfortunately, they'll probably cut that last line out. Ya know, for the kids. (THR via Vulture)
