But we're particularly excited about an idea the actor pitched Miss Piggy himself. While sitting down with her, Gonzo, Kermit the Frog, and Robin to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Muppet Christmas Carol, Goldstein suggested they team up to bring another classic work of literature to the big screen.
"You've done Muppet Christmas Carol. You've done Muppet Treasure Island. You've done Muppet Wizard of Oz," said Goldstein. "Can I please pitch that we make Muppets Pride and Prejudice?"
The actor then went on to try to sell Miss Piggy on the idea that he would play Mr. Darcy and she could be Elizabeth Bennet in a new adaptation of the beloved Jane Austen novel. "I'd love to do that," she replied. "Brett, you've got pull in this town. Can you get Pride and Prejudice and Piggy green lit?"

Added Gonzo: "I think you've got pull, but Piggy has push," referring to the diva's notoriously assertive manner.
From there, the idea evolved to also include a pitch for Muppet Sunset Boulevard with Miss Piggy as Norma Desmond. Kermit offered to produce both efforts if they get green-lit.
As for Robin, well, he's ready to make a cameo in a very memorable scene. "There is a bit where Darcy swims in a lake, so maybe you can be in that bit," Goldstein told the frog.
Robin was up for the idea, replying, "Oh, I'm good at swimming."
