Tina Fey is set to star in 'The Muppets 2'.

The '30 Rock' actress is in talks to appear alongside Ricky Gervais, as well as Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, in the follow-up to the 2011 family-favourite.

Ricky is expected to play the "human lead character" in the "European-centric adventure", taking over from Jason Segel's starring role in the big screen reboot.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tina will play a Russian gulag prison guard, while 'Modern Family' star Ty Burrell will take on the role of an incompetent Interpol inspector.

Although the plot is being kept under wraps, reports indicate it will be a caper film taking place in various European locales.

This would not be the first time Tina and Ricky have worked together as they appeared alongside each other in 2009 film 'The Invention of Lying'.

The film will once again by directed by James Bobin from a script co-written with Nicholas Stoller, and it is expected to be released arrive at the end of this year.
