Zach Galifianakis Vs The Muppets
It’s difficult to tell which is more unnerving, the glassy-eyed stare of Kermit or the piercing insanity of Zach Galifianakis’ gaze. Well, now we might get to see both on screen at the same time because there’s news that the supreme beardo-weirdo might be working on a new Muppets movie.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Galifianakis’ co-star in Due Date, Robert Downey Jr. let slip that Zach was considering a role in the movie.
The currently untitled film (formerly known as The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made) is being fronted by Jason Segel and will see him starring with a new Muppet named Walter as they try to recruit the rest of the gang and save an ailing movie studio. A bit too late to save Miramax or MGM though unfortunately…
Rashida Jones, Amy Adams and Chris Cooper have already been case, with Cooper playing an evil oil baron intent on drilling beneath the studios foundations.
Flight of the Conchords’ director James Bobin will be in the chair directing a script by Segel and Forgetting Sarah Marshall/Get Him to the Greek’s Nick Stoller.
