Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard and Christine Baranski are joining the cast of “Mamma Mia!” — Universal Pictures and Playtone’s adaptation of the popular ABBA musical says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story revolves around a bride-to-be (Amanda Seyfried) and her formerly rebellious mom (Meryl Streep) who raised her on a Greek island and never disclosed the identity of her father.
The bride locates three men who might be her father and invites them to her wedding. The musical features 22 ABBA songs, including “Dancing Queen,” “Take a Chance on Me” and “The Winner Takes It All.”
Firth is one of the three possible fathers, a British businessman, whilst Skarsgard plays another. Pierce Brosnan has already been cast as the remaining suitor.
Baranski portrays a plastic surgery-loving party girl in her 40s who is bossy and boozy.
Phyllida Lloyd is directing the musical, which shoots from June-October in London and Greece.
