Amy Adams and Chris Cooper are in talks to star in the new Muppets movie.

Jason Segel, who co-wrote the movie with Nicholas Stoller, is starring in the film as a man who tried to reunite all the Muppets to try and save a movie studio.

Amy would play Jason's girlfriend, who helps to find all the Muppets and persuade them to get back together, Heat Vision blog reports.

Chris' part would be the greedy villain, who wants to buys the studio to dig for the oil hiding underneath it, and who never thought the Muppets were funny to begin with.

The Office's Rashida Jones is also in talks to play a TV executive in the film.

The Disney film is being directed by British director James Bobin, who worked with Sacha Baron Cohen on The 11 O'Clock Show to create Ali G and Bruno.

Filming is due to begin in November in Los Angeles.

The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
