‘Mama’ Sequel in the Works From ‘Starry Eyes’ Duo
Andres Muschietti’s Mama was a surprise horror hit when it arrived back in 2013. Produced by Guillermo del Toro, the ghost story hit theaters in January, a notorious wasteland where studios tend to dump their iffier prospects. But the film earned some great word-of-mouth and went on to make $146 million worldwide, making news of a sequel not all that surprising. Muschietti won’t be back to direct, but Universal has found a very talented pair of filmmakers to take his place.
