The IESB talked with Jason Segel, the writer of the new Muppets movie. He assures them that the movie will stay faithful to the ’80s-era Muppets. When asked if Kermit’s going to have some mojo in this movie, Segel says,

Let me tell you, anyone who can walk around in life completely naked all the time has got to have some mojo.

Funny, coming from a guy who’s completely naked for the entire opening sequence of his first major starring role.

The Muppets movie is still in the writing stages, and no release date has been set yet. Click here to read the whole interview.

Ever since we found out that Forgetting Sarah Marshall scribe and star of How I Met Your Mother Jason Segel was slated to write a new Muppets movie, we’ve been wondering if he could tone down his comedy to a PG level. In an interview with the MTV Movies Blog, Segel responds,

When I get into Muppet mode I turn into a 12-year-old boy. I think them seeing me in those meetings, they had no doubt I would be OK with the tone.

Segel also reveals a special guest star for the movie – Charles Grodin, star of The Great Muppet Caper.

Darth Gonzo - Muppet Star WarsIESB has a picture of the new Star Wars-themed Muppet figurines. I especially like the Darth Gonzo figure, with his long nose sticking out of the helmet.

As IESB pointed out, it’s no surprise new Muppet figures are coming out with the upcoming Jason Segel-penned Muppet movie in the works.
