We're hearing good things about the forth-coming "The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made" (we're sold on the working title alone). The Jason Segel-penned film will reportedly find Kermit living in squalor, Miss Piggy off in Europe living an arty and Lady Gaga-esque lifestyle, and an evil oil baron intent on destroying the Muppet's historic theater and home. Nothing sells a movie like drama, Gaga, and some singing chickens and rats. We've been wanting to see Piggy's poker face in high fashion for quite some time. Perhaps this is all retribution for Gaga's infamous Kermit skin coat? Either way, after seeing the Muppets performing again, we're more than ready for a full comeback.
