Flight Of The Conchords star Bret McKenzie is to pen new songs for the next Muppets movie.

MCKenzie reprises his Muppets role as musical supervisor after winning the Best Original Song honour at this year's (12) Academy Awards for Man Or Muppet, from the 2011 puppet movie.

The Muppets' producer Todd Lieberman confirmed MCKenzie's involvement in the sequel, which will be shot at Britain's Pinewood Studios and filmed in and around London next year (13), according to Collider.com.
