Could life get any better after Lady Gaga brought Kermit to last year’s Video Music Awards as her date? Apparently, yes! Yes, it can! Rumor has it that Miss Piggy’s character in the forthcoming Muppet movie, currently titled The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made, will be Lady Gaga–inspired. Jason Segel, who is writing the script, reportedly “envisions the modern Miss Piggy living indulgently and arty abroad.”
“Miss Piggy ends up becoming like a Lady Gaga–esque character living in Europe,” the source said. “Kermit ends up being destitute and the main characters find him living in squalor.”
Producers are also reportedly trying to get some big (human) stars to appear in the film. If Segel knows anything about life, he’ll position the squalor-dwelling Kermit as escaping his fate as one of many frog skins in Lady Gaga’s favorite coat, thereby making way for the Gaga cameo of our wildest dreams.
