Disney is certainly on a role and 2013 is sure to be another big year for the entertainment giant. Following the commercial success and revival of The Muppets last year, Disney got the ball rolling on a sequel.
Recently, we reported that Christoph Waltz was close to being cast as an Interpol agent in what is being described as a comedy caper through Europe. While there hasn't been any word on that front, there's news that will certainly bring joy and wild arm flailing among Muppets fans.
According to Collider, the film has circled a release date and it's a lot sooner than originally expected. The Muppets 2 will arrive in theaters on December 20, 2013, with James Bobin returning to direct and co-write the film.
Bret McKenzie is also returning to write new songs and we may be getting another new Muppet. Producer Todd Lieberman says the sequel will shoot in London beginning in late January and wrapping some time in April. Additionally, he teased that there will be more casting announcements very soon.
