In an interview with Movieline Nicholas Stoller said that the next Muppet film will be a Caper in a similar vein of The Great Muppet Caper. He was quoted saying ”I think it’s similar to the first one in that the first one certainly had dramatic connections to the first Muppet movie, but it was a whole new thing, hopefully… This is the same thing. We love The Great Muppet Caper and we love Muppets Take Manhattan and whatnot. So this has some elements of that, but it’s different because it’s in the tone of what James and I like to do.”
I am particularly excited because this means that they read the article I wrote last month.
