Mamma Mia Sequel May Be in the Works According to Stars Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried

A Mamma Mia Sequel: Brilliant or Baffling?

Could Meryl Streep, Coiln Firth, and Pierce Brosnan be warming up their vocal cords for a Mamma Mia sequel? That's what recent quotes from stars of last Summer's hit makes it sound like. Amanda Seyfried said the very nebulous, "I've been talking to some insiders and it's not something that they haven't been working on."

It's not a huge shocker that sequel-happy Hollywood would want a follow-up to the massively successful musical, and I'd certainly be in line for a ticket if it came to theaters. I know in general some fans will be crying foul anyway over a sequel, but what's your opinion on it?

The first movie should NOT have been made, so the second one could be nothing but even more dreadful.

It's baffling because it was based on a musical and it makes no sense to create a sequel. On top of that sequels never do well and it will just leave a sour taste.

If it's done right... I'd love it! I for one, never thought a great musical could be achieved based on one song, or that it would be a success. But it is.

I saw Mamma Mia live several years ago and it was wonderful live, but I though the movie version was extremely disappointing. I have no interest in seeing a sequel when they didn't even get the first one right in my opinion.

I thought I saw "Mamma Mia" in the headlines for buzzsugar and then I look again and sure enough it's there. I'm surprised or initially baffled but I'm glad! Often, sequels aren't very good but I'm hoping that if this were to be true and Meryl Streep was interested that it would be as well executed as the first film. That would be great and in that case I would see it. It was also the first movie my parents had seen in years and they loved it! So, yeah, totally brilliant. :)

I LOVE this movie. I'd really rather not ruin it with a crappy sequel.

YAY! I loved this movie and the actors and the singing, I'm excited! It's a fun movie, it doesn't really rest on great writing and twists and turns, so it's perfect for a sequal, unlike so many other movies.

They already used the best Abba songs. I don't really care to hear the rest of the second hand ones.
