Meryl Streep will star in the feature-film version of the Broadway hit Mamma Mia. The International hit musical uses the songs of ABBA to tell the story of a single mother of a young girl who doesn’t know who her father is. The daughter tries to find out who her father is and invites three candidates to her wedding in Greece.
Theater director, Phyllida Lloyd will make her film directing debut. Shooting will begin shortly in London and Greece for a 2008 release.
What’s gayer than gay? Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia the movie! I don’t even know what to say. Hopefully since Meryl is involved it won’t be that bad. She has made bad movies in the past, but she can usually turn a sour movie good.
