Universal's Mama did pretty damned well at the box office so you know what that means, right, kids? Yep! Sequel talk! So the question beckons: How do you bring the twisted specter back for more? Read on for the early details.

According to Screen Daily Mama grossed $89.2m [$68.2m from the Us] with 43 territory openings still to come, including the UK, Germany, France, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Japan, and Italy. Today Universal Pictures’ president of international distribution, 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. 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.”
