It seems only fitting that Jason Segel has finally signed on to star in the upcoming Muppets movie. Segel has had an extensive role in the development of the upcoming film, entitled The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made, which he penned with Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller. THR is now reporting that Segel will be starring in and producing the film as well.

Segel will join David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films/TV in producing the film, with James Bobin (writer, director and producer of HBO’s Flight of the Conchords) set to direct. The plot remains under wraps although the film’s story could have something to do with the classic Muppets coming out of retirement after a villain looks to destroy the TV studio on which The Muppet Show was once filmed. Though that news hasn’t been confirmed yet, the story is certainly intriguing enough to create a more than halfway decent Muppet film.
