The film sees the Muppets gang visiting a host of global cities for the crime caper style flick, which features Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Modern Family's Ty Burrell. The film is set to open in cinemas on March 28 of this year (2014).

In the movie Gervais gets to perform a muppet duet, songwriter Bret McKenzie has revealed. Flight Of The Conchords star McKenzie wrote several original songs for 2011's The Muppets, winning an Oscar for 'Man Or Muppet'.

In a new interview with Collider, McKenzie said: "Ricky Gervais does a song with a green frog, and that was great because I don't know if you know this, but Ricky Gervais was a singer in the '80s. He was in a kind of Bowie type of band [short-lived new wave duo Seona Dancing]," McKenzie explained. "He's got a really good singing voice so that was cool. It's always fun when the actors come out and they can really sing."
