Tina Fey in Talks to Join Disney's 'Muppets' Sequel

From The Hollywood Reporter,


Fey would re-team with her "Invention of Lying" co-star Ricky Gervais in the follow-up to the 2011 reboot of the Jim Henson franchise.


Days before she co-hosts the Golden Globes, Tina Fey is in late-stage negotiations to star as the female lead in Disney’s Muppets sequel, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.



The script is being kept secret but the character descriptions point to a caper. Burrell, as first revealed by THR, is playing a lazy Interpol inspector.

If a deal is concluded, Fey, according to sources, would play a Russian gulag prison guard.   
James Bobin, who directed the 2011 Muppets film, is back as helmer and co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller.

David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, who produced Muppets, also are back to produce the sequel, which will shoot in London later this month.

Muppets 2 would mark one of Fey’s first feature appearances since 2010’s Date Night. She will next co-star opposite Paul Rudd in Admission, a comedy set for release in March. Fey worked with Gervais in 2009’s The Invention of Lying, which Gervais starred in and co-wrote and co-directed.
