Andrés Muschietti’s Mama may yet to have opened here in the UK (it hits this Friday, our review Here), but the film’s huge stateside success has Universal Pictures pondering a return for the supernatural guardian. The films’ producer, Guillermo del Toro, spotted Muschietti’s own, terrifying 3-minute short and tapped the filmmaker to make it full-length. Since it’s release in January, Mama, has went on to gross almost $90 million on a budget of around $15 million.
Unsurprisingly, Universal are now looking at pimping Mama out in a follow-up, although the studio’s international president, David Kosse, states:
We think there’s potential for a Mama franchise. We’d like to do another one. But those conversations are in the early stages.
