With the success of MAMA worldwide, Universal is considering a sequel to the film. Various sources are quoted below. According to the various reports the new films will not star Nikolaj or Jessica Chastain, rather, new sets of characters with other protectors. My guess is it might be Papa, Uncle, Auntie, Cousin, Second Nephew on the Mama’s side, Family Dog or something equally as interesting. I say ‘interesting’ with tongue firmly planted in cheek. I personally think any further sequels might dilute the originality of the first film. I agree with director Andy Muschietti. What do you think?
David Kosse says:
“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.”
However, director Muschietti isn’t interested in turning the film into an ongoing series.
He told Screencrush, “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.”
