A message from the British Correspondent:
I am very aware that I have spent much of the last year in silence, but this was mainly because I have been working a deep undercover operation at Elstree Studios preparing for the filming of The Muppets… Again. You can imagine my dissapointment when I discovered only last Wednesday that they are currently mid-film at Pinewood Studios. Anyway, having relocated myself to behind the bins out back at the wood of pines, I found some scraps from an open casting call for extras of which I imagine you may all find some interesting details.
According to my sources (sauces?), a scene will take place in a Mediterranean restaurant, a wedding will take place at which many international humans will attend including Japanese, Indian and African guests in traditional costumes and dresses, a number of Irish gentlemen are needed to play photographers, a choir is required (pardon the pun) and a blonde German man will be upset after a robbery.
That is the scoop. Until next time. I will go back to hiding inside this bin with two cats and a dead pigeon.

Additionally, our friend Wayne Howes, who is also a British correspondent but not nearly as secretive or creepy about it, provided us with some details on where The Muppets… Again has been shooting. Wayne is a photographer and you should check out his website for some photos he took while the movie was filming at the Chatham Dockyard in Kent. Unfortunately you can’t see any Muppets, but it might provide some hints. Wayne also provided us with the following list of locations where the movie has been shooting:
- Clerkenwell Prison
- Pinewood Studios
- Chatham Dockyard in Kent
So I guess we still don’t know too much more info about the movie… but I guess it’s more than we knew before! Any speculation on what this could mean, Muppet fans? Sound off in the comments below!
