If the musical is experiencing a new great moment, it has been because of films like ‘The city of stars: La La Land’ or ‘A star is born’; or, getting into the biopic field, with tapes like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Rocketman’ or the future ‘Elvis’. Of all of them, ‘The Great Showman’ stands out especially for its staging and musical explosion.
The film, starring Hugh Jackman (who once again delighted us with his booming voice after ‘Les Miserables’), was a hit both at the box office, earning more than 430 million dollars, and in music stores, where it became in the best-selling album of 2018. A success of such magnitude predicted a sequel that had been talked about for years and that even its director had announced that it was working on. Although it seems that the project was left in the lurch, Michelle Williams (who played Charity Barnum, the wife of Jackman’s character) has rekindled the flame by declaring that she would love to participate in a sequel.
The actress, known for shooting dramas like ‘Blue Valentine’ or ‘Manchester by the Sea’, has fond memories of filming ‘The Greatest Showman’. “I would do another one of those without hesitation. I hope they make a sequel“commented the actress to Variety. “That movie brought so much joy to so many people, and making people so happy is something worth doing. I really love that movie. My daughter Matilda used to sing the songs and my mom still listens to the soundtrack. I love making these movies.” for children who are full of joy and positivity”he added.

Projects are not lacking for Michelle Williams since it was recently announced that ‘Venom 3’, the new installment of the Spider-Man villain, was in development. After ‘Venom’ and ‘Venom: There will be slaughter’, Williams hopes to return to play Anne Weying, Eddie Brock’s love interest. In addition, the actress will also be in the new film by Steven Spielberg‘The Fabelmans’ whose cast seems legendary if we add the likes of Seth Rogen, Paul Dano or director David Lynch himself.
