Teen-targeted dramas like Hunger Games and Twilight have been cash cows for studios Lionsgate and Summit, but the two studios felt compelled to share the risk when it came to the lastest young adult novel adaptation Divergent.

The scene we got to watch them shoot takes place early in the film and was shot to actually take place on-location at Union Station. Nearly 20 different Muppets – ranging in size from Rizzo The Rat to Sweetums – sat on the train platform surrounded by large, stacked piles of luggage containing random things like musical instruments, Pigs in Space props, and even a bull in a crate.

Ricky Gervais Smuggles Kermit And Miss Piggy In New Look At The Muppets...Again!
The combination of the Muppets and Ricky Gervais could very well be a genius one. The Muppets classically represent everything that is happy and awesome in this world, while Gervais is widely known for his deep, deep cynicism. It should be fascinating to see how their personalities clash on screen - but sadly there's probably a long wait ahead of us before we get to see any actual footage.

Christoph Waltz Might Still Cameo In The Muppets Sequel
It was Waltz’s busy schedule that reportedly was going to keep him out of filming the larger role in the planned sequel, but if director James Bobin can find some room for him, we’re willing to take what little bit we can get. Waltz is such a no-nonsense guy, we’d love to see him let his hair down, so to speak, for a silly dance number with Piggy.

The Muppets Sequel Won't Have Jason Segel, But Walter Will Return
The creation of Walter was an inspired way to re-introduce the Muppets, establishing their past through an admiring fan that ultimately makes his own Rainbow Connection. However, Walter as a character isn't nearly as engaging or memorable as the classic Muppets, so it's a smart move to shuffle him into the supporting players and put Kermit back in his place as the Muppet movies' emotional center.
