    I hope Jim and Jerry get credit for this. If they don't i would hope that there would be some sort of lawsuite!

    i think the greatest muppet movie ever made should come before the cheapest muppet movie ever made. it would make more sense in my eyes. i'm excited either way though.

    Y'know, one thing (among many actually) that i'm wondering is IF Jason Segel is actually going to be involved with Cheapest?

    I guess this is really a question for those who were at D23 during Dick Cook's announcement...was Segel's name ever actually MENTIONED as being attached to the project during the opening presentation or the Muppets' panel or did the press covering it just add Jason Segel's name in there when they reporting the news out of assumption that he would be involved given all the buzz over his Greatest script and the similarities between the two titles? I'm really thinking Segel's involvement may have been lazy "reporting" from the press and that Segel/Stoller may not actually be on the team working on Cheapest (and that despite all the buzz and publicity, Disney passed on the Segel script at least as the next movie.)

    Okay. So does this mean The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time is discontinued or do they save it for the next 2 or 3 years?:confused:

    Everything is PURE speculation at this point. Dw brought up a good point to think about. Now, what IF they do a movie different from that script? Or what if we have another Fraggle movie situation, and Segal and Stoller wrote the basic outline and first draft of the script to be handed over to a different writer who would finish it? Or have they just decided on a different plot and script all together.

    There's a difference... we know more about the status of the FR movie than this one because the person writing and working on it has a blog. And we know all the updates, and the progress- good or bad.

    Until I see something official, I don't know what is going on... and wild speculations will only lead to discontent and negativity. Again, DW brought up a point to think about. Not something we should wildly guess about what's going on.

    I hope they can add the cute and cuddly brown dog, Rowlf.

    yeah me too is he going to be in it? :sympathy:

    Well as far as Rowlf I really thought that when he was in the Youtube videos that it was a sing that he was going to be used more. However he was barely in LTS, and we really didn't see him much anywhere else. I think what they are trying to do know is work on getting Chef and Dr. Teeth as main players again, and then work on Rowlf. at least that is what I think.

    I don't think we have ANYTHING to worry about as far as Rowlf (or any of the main characters from The Muppet Show days) being in the film. Rowlf's part in LTS was a revolutionary amount in comparison to the other recent Muppet films--and starring in the Skateboarding Dog YouTube video? That was epic. I have no doubt that Rowlf will be in the movie. None whatsoever.

    I think it was Scooter we were worrying about. The word was that he didn't have much to say in one of the early drafts. ;)
  20. theprawncracker

    Indeed. But... again, I don't think we really need to worry. Scooter was pretty big in LTS and he had a speaking part at D23 so I think he'll be in the film. :D
