    Am I missing something? He didn’t write anything about Britney Murphy returning. I also really don’t think he meant Angelina was in the first one. It looks like he combined two sentences without proofreading after, otherwise it probably would’ve read “all strongly rumored to return” rather than “all strongly BEEN rumored to return.” Geeesh… let’s not nitpick!

    babagloom the article originally included Brittany Murphy as one of the original cast members that had all strongly been rumored to return. and no that’s not what he meant. all the cast members he listed (not including Angelina) were all in the original movie. he clearly thought Angelina was in the original and that deceased Brittany Murphy was still alive. it’s not nitpicking. it just takes a second to fact check an article. IMDB can be one’s friend. :)
