We're so sorry to bring U such gloomy news, but Jason Segel has confirmed he will not be writing the Muppets sequel.
We know, we know… but it's going to be OKAY.
Despite the studio's enthusiasm to keep this cash cow going, Jason explained his decision:
My goal was to bring back The Muppets, and I feel like we did it. I just felt like I did what I set out to do. I’m really happy that they’re back to where they belong.
He also explained why he doesn't plan on starring in the sequel either:
It doesn’t really make organic sense. Maybe I’ll do something in the future but no, I’m just sort of happy to send my kids off into the world.
As Miss Piggy might say, le sigh.
Welp!! We can only push a man so hard, and he's right… Amy Adams's character was this-close to dumping his butt in the last movie. He seriously needs to go and plan their wedding, LOL!!!
