Looks like the Muppets movie has a director:
The Hollywood Reporter | Heat Vision | Comics | Movie News: 'Flight of the Conchords' co-creator will direct Disney's Muppet movie
I read elsewhere that the directors of "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" were going to direct the movie, then abruptly changed their minds. Gee, wonder why? :P
So, the new head of Disney's movie division hires a guy who created a flop TV show to direct a movie about a bunch of old TV puppets after the directors of a hit movie turn the project down.
And the descent into madness continues...
