The Greatest Showman 2: Plot, Cast, Release Date Status and Everything You Want to Know!
Despite the ongoing proliferation of post-credit scenes and confusing endings, some movies just don’t need sequels. As for The Greatest Showman (2017), the picture based on the true story of circus master PT Barnum was beautifully wound up with a gorgeous ribbon.
But money talks, and with The Greatest Showman having grossed a stunning $435 million at the box office, it was no surprise that a sequel was in the works, even if PT Barnum’s narrative was completed being told. We’re not making this up; the director of The Greatest Showman himself confirmed it.
He stated: “It’s only logical that a sequel will be requested for a film that becomes as popular as this one. We’re now engaged in one of those debates.”
But just what may they be working on? As of this writing, the following is all we know about The Greatest Showman 2.
The Greatest Showman 2 cast: Will Zac and Hugh return?
In an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on April 26, Zac Efron threw gasoline on the fire by saying, “It’s been a long time coming.” “There are numerous projects in the works for Hugh (Jackman), including a one-man show. What will be the next step? I don’t know if there will be a sequel, but I hope so.”
Whether Hugh Jackman would return, though, is unknown. On the contrary, according to Efron, Hugh Jackman told BBC Radio 2 that “I don’t know what the real answer is, but I do know that the makers of The Greatest Showman 2 are working on a treatment.” If I’m being really honest, rumors abound, but no one knows for sure what it is… Some kind of remedy is being developed.”
Jackman made the following guess: “Even if it doesn’t focus on me, I’d like to be a part of the project. The second point is, that it did take eight years to get it done and that wasn’t all eight years of convincing people. To compose something, you need a lot of time and effort to do it.”
