Disney is sending out The Muppets on December 25, 2011. The new project comes from a script by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller (director of Get Him to the Greek). Segel will also star.

Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn and Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo are slated to open on December 23, so The Muppets will enter a crowded marketplace.

Tackling The Muppets certainly represents a change of pace for both Segel and Stellar considering that both men have found success with raunchy, R-rated comedies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I Love You, Man and Get Him to the Greek.

Mr. T played B.A. Baracus in the original show. His shoes have been filled by Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson in the film version.
