Seyfried says Mamma Mia 2 on way
Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has confirmed there are plans for a follow-up to the hugely successful movie.
The actress, who played Sophie in the musical, has denied knowledge of a sequel in the past. However, she has now suggested that there are serious talks underway about releasing a second film.
She told Newsbeat: "I've been talking to some insiders and it’s not something that they haven’t been working on. I don’t actually know anything other than that."
"I know it’s still going to be Abba music, because what else would it be. Come on, I wouldn’t do Mamma Mia 2 without Benny and Bjorn."
"I will do it. And I know Meryl’s game as well, so bring it on. It will be so cool."

ABBA Women Say Their Competition Was Healthy
Article dated the 21.03.2009. Agnetha and Anni-Frid deny that they're enemies.
Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad of legendary Swedish pop group ABBA have said in an interview that they are not the bitter, arch-enemies that they have been portrayed as.
The pair accepted Aftonbladet’s lifetime achievement award in Sweden yesterday (January 22).
When asked about their rumoured rivalry, Lyngstad said: "A lot has been written about how Agnetha and I fought and quarreled with each other. There is absolutely no truth in that. Of course we competed, but to good effect."
"No, we didn’t fight. But we have to live (through) a whole lot of such misinterpretations," said Faltskog, according to the Associated Press.
The pair were part of the group with Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus until 1982. They have sold more than 370 million albums.

Mamma Mia! Celebrates Eight Years on Broadway
The hit Benny Andersson-Björn Ulvaeus musical Mamma Mia! celebrates eight years on Broadway Oct. 18 at the Winter Garden Theatre.
The musical is now the 13th longest-running show in Broadway history, having surpassed the record-breaking runs of Fiddler on the Roof; Hello, Dolly!; Annie; My Fair Lady and the original run of Cabaret.
The New York company currently features Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone) as Donna Sheridan, Gypsy’s John Dossett as Sam Carmichael, with Judy McLane (Tanya), Allison Briner (Rosie), Halle Morse (Lisa), Michael Mindlin (Pepper), Patrick Boll (Bill Austin), Alyse Alan Louis (Sophie), David Andrew Macdonald (Harry Bright) and Eric William Morris (Sky).
Mamma Mia! employs the hit songs of famed pop group ABBA to tell the story of Sophie Sheridan, a young girl who hopes to discover the identity of her father. On the eve of her wedding, she brings three men from her mother Donna's past back to the Greek island they visited over two decades ago.
Mamma Mia! features music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, a book by Catherine Johnson, direction by Phyllida Lloyd and choreography by Anthony Van Laast.
The musical was a hit in London, where it still plays, before arriving on Broadway. The production also spawned a hit film starring Oscar winner Meryl Streep.
