Seyfried Started Mamma Mia Sequel Rumors
Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has confessed she started rumors movie bosses were planning a sequel to the musical hit - because she's desperate to reprise her role. The actress found fame - and love with co-star Dominic Cooper - when she landed a lead role in the ABBA-inspired 2008 film.
Director Phyllida Lloyd was last year (09) reported to be working on a follow-up - but Seyfried admits she took the gossip she'd heard and spread it around Hollywood. She tells Cinema Blend, "I think I might have started that rumor. I started sharing a rumor that I heard that there was a Mamma Mia! 2."
But the actress now concedes there's unlikely to be a sequel - and if there is, it won't feature her, Cooper or co-star Pierce Brosnan. She adds, "My boyfriend (Cooper) had talked to Phyllida (Lloyd) and she said that if they do Mamma Mia! they are going to use a whole new cast and do a prequel. And then that's when I said no, it's not going to happen. And Pierce (Brosnan) recently said that it wasn't going to happen either. So sadly no." (IG/WNWC/MT)
