According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gervais is in negotiations for one of the three major human parts.

Burrell was previously announced as a cast-member, replacing Christoph Waltz as “a lazy Interpol inspector.”

Gervais, however, is eyeing the lead role. Equal billing with Kermit! Now he’s really made it.

The Muppets’ director James Bobin will return, and has co-written the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller.
