The Muppets 2 is now not The Muppets... Again! Instead, it's Muppets Most Wanted...

Now in post production is the very eagerly-awaited follow-up - by us especially - to the quite brilliant The Muppets. The film's being directed by James Bobin again, and this time he's also co-written the screenplay alongside Nicholas Stoller. Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey lead the cast.

Now we learn that the film has had a title change, too. From the working title of The Muppets 2, it was previously announced that the film was going to be called The Muppets... Again! However, Disney has had a change of heart, and gone for something instead that gives you more direct responses when you type it into Google (and we'd imagine, in all seriousness, that might have had something to do with it). Thus, the new Muppets film is now called Muppets Most Wanted.

The film arrives in the US on March 21st 2014, and it's currently on the schedules to arrive in the UK a week after that.
