Gervais to star in Muppets sequel?

Ricky Gervais is being linked to a Muppets sequel

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.
