James Bobin'Flight of the Conchords' co-creator James Bobin will raise the curtain on a new Muppet movie for Disney, Heat Vision has confirmed.

Bobin -- who also worked with Sacha Baron Cohen to create the characters seen in 'Da Ali G Show,' 'Borat' and 'Bruno' -- was thought to be the frontrunner ever since 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs'' Phil Lord and Chris Miller ducked out. Reportedly, Bobin passed on Judd Apatow's latest comedy, 'Bridesmaids,' to pal around with Miss Piggy, Kermit and Co.

Jason Segel, star of 'How I Met Your Mother' and last year's comedy 'I Love You, Man,' penned the Muppet movie screenplay with his 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' director, Nicholas Stoller.
