Gossip has it that the legendary Miss Piggy will play a Lady Gaga-inspired character in the next Muppets movie, reports New York Mag. The film (working title: The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made), centers on Miss Piggy "becoming like a Lady Gaga-esque character living in Europe," says a source. Word is that scriptwriter Jason Segel, "envisions the modern Miss Piggy living indulgently and arty abroad. Kermit ends up being destitute and the main characters find him living in squalor." Oh, Kermie. [The Cut]
