It looks like 2010 may be the year of the sequels for the always-dashing actor Colin Firth. In addition to a rumored third Bridget Jones movie, Colin recently confirmed to Collider.com that a second "Mamma Mia!" may be dancing into theaters soon, though it's likely the flick won't feature any ABBA tunes this time around.
"Benny Andersson [ABBA member and 'Mamma Mia!' composer] was public— quoting what I read in a newspaper—but he said it’s not going to happen with ABBA," Colin explained. "We’re not using the back catalogue. He, I think, has other ambitions, probably. The main thing is they’ve used the songs you would need for that musical and using the rest of the catalogue… I don’t know, you’d have to ask him. From what I’m understanding, the people who do want to make it, are considering the possibility of using another band's music. Why not. But that’s speculation, I’ve got no insight on what will really happen."
If Donna and Sophie (and hopefully Colin's Harry) do return to the big screen, shimmying and shaking to a different band's music, what band should it be? Obviously it should be one whose music is infinitely danceable, and it couldn't hurt if it were a tad kitschy too. Maybe someone from the '70s or '80s? I think the Bee Gees would be great, but that'd be a little too "Saturday Night Fever," you know? How about Journey? "Don't Stop Believin'" always gets people on their feet. Or what about the Jackson 5 as a testament to Michael Jackson? A little "Rockin' Robin" anyone?
What do you think, Crushers? Are you excited for a "Mamma Mia!" sequel? Which band's music should be used in the second flick?
