Firth keen to work on 'Mamma Mia!' sequel

Colin Firth would work on a ‘Mamma Mia!’ sequel.

The actor - who has been nominated for an Oscar for his role in Tom Ford-directed ‘A Single Man’ - says rumours about another movie were exaggerated, but admitted he did enjoy working with the crew.

He said: “I don't know, I've heard such conflicting things about it. I don't want to spend my life in sequels and franchises and things like that.

“But I'd certainly get back with that group of people in a second.”

The 49-year-old also revealed fashion designer Ford was a great first time director.

He told Marie Claire: “One of the great gifts that Tom has, is that he creates the illusion that you have all the time in the world. This film was shot in 21 days, so there's no reason why we should feel a sense of space at all, really, it should have been hasty and fraught and panic stricken.

“He's a micromanager of things, but he doesn't mess around editorialising and changing camera positions. He's just saying, 'I want what you can give me.'"
