Mamma Mia! Film Adaptation

Pierce Brosnan is to star opposite Meryl Streep as Sam Carmichael in the film adaptation of the show!

Pierce Brosnan is to star opposite Meryl Streep as Sam Carmichael in the film adaptation of Mamma Mia! He is the second major star to be confirmed for the film.

"I said yes right away because it meant working with Meryl Streep," Brosnan told Daily Variety.

"Secondly, I saw the show with my family in London, and found it just so wonderfully happy and joyful, and so pitched in time forever in the 1970s. What a kick in the pants, to be able to go off and spend time with Meryl on some Greek island, singing ABBA songs."

The show and film''s producer Judy Craymer said "Pierce brings a certain smooch factor, and we think he''ll have great chemistry with Meryl in a romantic comedy," Craymer said. "He is just the perfect choice."

It won''t be the first musical role for Brosnan who sang a few Irish standards in the indie drama "Evelyn," and sang onstage early in his career.
