Ricky Gervais penned for The Muppets 2. God help us!
The Muppets 2 or, The Muppets again, was announced a while back (inevitably) with a cast of randoms penned to feature; with the inclusion of Ricky Gervais requiring a second look.
One of the most irritating men on the planet is set to play a Muppet by the name of Dominic; who follows the Muppets on their global tour looking to sabotage their plans, making matters worse for Kermit and co.
I must say, I was not a huge fan of The Muppets in 2011. Obviously its target audience wasn't for everyone, but it did promise a concept of enjoyment for both adult and child, resulting in a hyped up flashback to a past that some might remember as a kid, but ultimately enjoyed it in very, very small sequences. But I hold my hands up to Jason Segel and the rest who did mange to revive a show that we all appreciated at some stage in our lives.
The Muppets 2 is set for release in March 2014.
