The teaser trailer and poster for Green With Envy has just gone online, but don’t be fooled. It’s actually the trailer and poster for the upcoming romantic comedy “The Muppets” (attached to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), starring Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Amy Adams (Leap Year).
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
The film is directed by James Bobin (a man whose career thus far has been comprised of television shows and shorts, with standouts being ‘Da Ali G Show’ and ‘The Flight of the Conchords.’) with a script by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller. Also stars Rashida Jones, Donald Glover, Danny Trejo.
The Muppets is scheduled to hit theaters on November 23, 2011.
