He wrote: "Just finished my little bit on the #Muppets movie with @dexfletch. What a thrill. I got to meet Kermit!!!!!"

Serafinowicz has not yet revealed who he and Fletcher will be playing in the film, but The Muppets… Again is expected to feature cameos from Ray Liotta and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz.

Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey have signed on to play henchmen for an evil Kermit doppelganger known as Constantine.

Gervais recently boasted that starring in a Muppets film was more gratifying for him than working with Robert De Niro on his hit series Extras.

"Honestly, this is the first time when I've really gone, 'I really can't believe my luck here'. I think people think I am blasé about doing all this stuff but this tops working with De Niro," the comic has said. "It is absolute magic and I have been a huge fan literally for 35 years."

The Muppets… Again is expected to premiere in March 2014 in the US and the UK.
