THE MUPPETS ARE COMING!!! Variety reports today that "The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made," co-written by the powerhouse Nick Stoller/Jason Segel duo and directed by James Bobin, now has a release date: Christmas Day, 2011. Interestingly, the report states that there's no official title for the film even though "Greatest Muppet Movie" has been floating around for some months now.
Does it matter? Like I said, THE MUPPETS ARE COMING!!! AND NOW WE KNOW WHEN!!! To celebrate this fantastic news I've unearthed an amazing video clip from MTV's archives: Kermit the Frog talking about music and professing his love for hip-hop. And Cypress Hill. And... The X-Cutioners? Really?! So freaking cool, those Muppets.
