    James Bobin & Nicholas Stoller Sign On For 'Muppets' Sequel, Jason Segel Too Busy To Co-Write This Time

    Chris Pratt Joins Jason Segel & Emily Blunt In 'Five Year Engagement'; Rhys Ifans In Talks

    The last time we saw the names Jason Segel, Emily Blunt and Nicholas Stoller all together, it was for absolutely wretched "Gulliver's Travels."
