Mama sequel in the works

Feb 21 2013, 6:10am CST | by

Universal is planning a 'Mama' franchise.

The studio is hoping to capitalise on the success of its hit horror film starring Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain - which topped the US box office last month - by developing a sequel after the film grossed triple its $15 million budget.

Universal Pictures executive David Kosse told Screen Daily: ''We think there's potential for a 'Mama' franchise. We'd like to do another one. But those conversations are in the early stages.

'''Mama' is the first of this type of model that we've had enormous success with so there are more opportunities for this kind of film.''

Despite the studio's eagerness to shoot a sequel, the film's director Andres Muschietti previously revealed he would not be interested in a follow-up film because the subject matter had been worn out.

He said: ''We sort of wore out the subject matter...I never thought this could continue. Sequels are always tricky. I know how studios think but I don't see 'Mama' as something you can exploit because you're screwing with the original. I'm really hoping to jump into some other movies right now.''

The film's success was spurred by Jessica's Oscar nominated turn in 'Zero Dark Thirty', and also stars 'Game of Thrones' actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

'Mama' is out in the UK on Friday (22.02.13).

In a recent interview with MTV News, actress Jessica Chastain confirmed old reports that she had turned down what she described as a "boring civilian role" in "Iron Man 3," likely the role that went to Rebecca Hall. Her reasons for turning it down are understandable: "If you're going to be in a superhero movie, you only get one chance. You're that character forever.
