Pierce Brosnan and Amanda Seyfried are in final negotiations to star alongside Meryl Streep in the musical adaptation, Mamma Mia! for Universal Pictures and Playtone.
The popular ABBA musical will be directed by Phyllida Lloyd; the story revolves around a bride-to-be and her formerly rebellious mom (Streep) who raised her on a Greek island and never disclosed the identity of her father, says The Hollywood Reporter. The bride locates three men who might be her father and invites them to her wedding; the musical features 22 ABBA songs, including "Dancing Queen," "Take a Chance on Me" and "The Winner Takes It All." Brosnan will play the main father figure, while Seyfried has snagged the role of the bride-to-be.
Mamma Mia!'s screenplay was written by Catherine Johnson, who wrote the show's book. Holly Bario is overseeing for Universal.
