EW has confirmed that none other than Cher has joined the cast of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the follow-up to the 2008 hit.
Adapted from the successful stage musical based on the songs of ABBA, Mamma Mia! starred Meryl Streep, with daughter Amanda Seyfried and her three men (Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård), all wondering which of them is the bride’s father.
The role is being kept under wraps, so far. Ol Parker’s sequel marks Cher’s first onscreen role since 2010’s Burlesque. It reunites her 35 years later with Streep, her costar in 1983’s Silkwood, for which they both received Oscar nominations.
Over the weekend, Cher teased us with the news on Twitter saying,
“Just went through two dance numbers. Everyone’s great“
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which returns the entire core cast, dances into theaters on July 20, 2018.
