Phyllida Lloyd Says Mamma Mia!

Theater director Phyllida Lloyd is in negotiations to make her feature directorial debut on Universal Pictures “Mamma Mia!” says The Hollywood Reporter.

This adaptation of the popular ABBA musical follows a bride-to-be — raised on a Greek island by a formerly rebellious mom who never disclosed the identity of her father — who 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.” Since opening in London in 1999, the show has grossed more than $1 billion with productions running around the globe.

The movie’s screenplay was written by Catherine Johnson, who wrote the show’s book.
