Baranski, James Join The “Mamma Mia” Sequel

“The Good Fight” alum Christine Baranski will reprise her role and “Baby Driver” star Lily James has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel to the 2008 film adaptation of the musical “Mamma Mia!”.

“Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!” will once again feature the music of the band ABBA and actors Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth are all expected back for the follow-up.

James will play the role of a younger version of Meryl Streep’s character. The new film will reportedly boast flashbacks showing how relationships forged in the past resonate today.

Ol Parker (“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) is penning the script for the new chapter which is expected to feature ABBA songs that were not in the first film – however some will be reprised.

The first “Mamma Mia” made $600 million worldwide.
