News   PHOTO CALL: "Mamma Mia!" — the Movie
The ABBA-infused musical Mamma Mia! heads to the big screen this summer with Meryl Streep starring as mom Donna Sheridan.

Scheduled to hit movie theatres around the country July 18, the film also features Pierce Brosnan, Amanda Seyfried, Colin Firth, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Stellan Skarsgard and Dominic Cooper.

The London and Broadway stage director Phyllida Lloyd makes her feature-film debut with the movie musical featuring songs by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus.

"An independent, single mother who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island, Donna (Streep) is about to let go of Sophie (Seyfried), the spirited daughter she's raised alone," according to the film notes. "For Sophie's wedding, Donna has invited her two lifelong best girlfriends — practical and no-nonsense Rosie (Walters) and wealthy, multi-divorcee Tanya (Baranski) — from her one-time backing band, Donna and the Dynamos. But Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own."
