Ricky Gervais is apparently in talks to star in Disney's follow-up to The Muppets.

The Extras funnyman would play the human leading role in the sequel to the 2011 movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The film, which starts production next month in London, is described as "a European-centric adventure" and will feature a host of cameos and three main human characters.

Modern Family's Ty Burrell is also said to be on board as a lazy Interpol inspector.

It's not yet known which part Ricky - whose cameo in the first film ended up on the cutting room floor - would play.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
