Mamma mia! Here we go again… again!
In a new interview with the Daily Mail, “Mamma Mia!” producer Judy Craymer revealed that a third entry in the franchise is being planned, though the pandemic has got in the way.
“I was meant to have been getting on with that, in my head, during these months,” she said. “But then I got hit with COVID fog.”
She added, “I think one day there will be another film because there’s meant to be a trilogy, you see.”
Craymer also said the studio is already itching for the next film: “I know Universal would like me to do it”.
The first film in the franchise was released in 2008, and was followed by “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” in 2018.
Despite Craymer’s comments, lead star Amanda Seyfried, who plays Sophie Sheridan in the movies, admitted she wasn’t sure if a third film could be done.
Insisting the cast and crew would love to hang out together again, she added in an interview with Collider: “I wish there was a ‘Mamma Mia! 3’, but I’ll tell you what – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and I hope I’m wrong again – I don’t think there are enough ABBA songs to make a third movie.
“Because we’d have to use ‘Super Trooper’ again and we’d have to use ‘Mamma Mia’ again and have to use them in a different way.”
