Mamma Mia 2? You Gotta Be Kidding Me!

David Linde, the co-chairman of Universal Studios has come out saying that it is very possible for a sequel to last year's musical Mamma Mia since the film was such a gigantic success. Hell, the DVD sales for the movie beat out DVD sales for Titanic!

One of the film's stars, Colin Firth has come out saying that the sequel is already in early stages of development but ABBA music will no longer be apart of the franchise. (HOLY SHIT! You have no idea how pissed I am right now)
In an interview with Colin Firth, he said, "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. We’re not using the back catalog. 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 catalog… 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."

Okay this is just wrong! I liked Mamma Mia! but making a sequel out of it is just an insult to the Broadway show from which it's origin is from. And what's a Mamma Mia! sequel without ABBA music? It's gonna be like calling a movie High School Musical 2 when it doesn't take place in a high school.

Some of the early rumors are saying that they are going to use someone from the 70's or 80's for the music. MTV is speculating either the Bee Gees or Michael Jackson.

Actually it won't be a bad idea making a musical out of Michael Jackson's music. But why the hell can't they make an original one out of it instead of using the Mamma Mia! cast? Can you imagine Pierce Brosnan singing Billy Jean or Meryl Streep dancing the Thriller??!!

What do you guys think? Mamma Mia! 2, Good idea? Bad idea? It's definitely happening. So which music group do you think they should cover?
