More cameos compete with the Muppets in their upcoming movie, as Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt sign up…

The road to a new, cinematically-released Muppet movie has been a long time coming, and the new movie, written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, is firmly down as one of our must-see flicks of 2011. And what's more, it's attracting a list of cameos that makes the casting director of The Expendables jealous.

Up to this point, we already knew that Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chris Cooper, Amy Adams, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Alan Arkin and Zack Galifianakis, were on board, with Segel starring alongside our favourite pieces of felt and cloth.

Now? More names have been added, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the addition of both Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt to the cast. They will be taking up cameo roles, and don't be surprised if director James Bobin adds more faces before the shoot is done.

The film arrives in the US on December 25th 2011.
