With Mama having grossed $89.2m [$68.2m from the US] with 43 territory openings still to come, including UK, Germany, France, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Japan and Italy, Universal Pictures’ president of international David Kosse admits the prospects of a sequel are good.
“We think there’s potential for a Mama franchise,” he explained. “We’d like to do another one. But those conversations are in the early stages.
He continues, “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.”
I’m not exactly sure how you do a sequel to the film, but if they want to redo it without all the crappy digital effects work, I’m okay with that…
