'Enchanted' Sequel Still Kicking, Now with 'Shrek 2' Writers on Board
It's been four years since we heard about Disney developing a sequel to their fairytale comedy Enchanted starring Oscar nominee Amy Adams. And it's been even longer since the 2007 film hit theaters, but that's not stopping Disney from keeping their hopes for Enchanted 2 high as Deadline reports a pair of writers have been hired to script the film. David N. Weiss & J. David Stem are set to script the film, and with films like Are We There Yet?, Daddy Day Camp and The Smurfs in their past, that doesn't inspire much confidence. But there's a glimmer of hope as the duo also scripted Shrek 2, which is a solid sequel. Read on!
It's not clear who will all be returning from the first film, but one would hope that Amy Adams is a high priority, and there probably shouldn't be a sequel without her unless it focuses on another princess. Adams was spectacular as the perpetually cheerful and clueless fairytale princess who ends up in the very real world of New York City. Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and Susan Sarandon all had integral parts in the film, but there may not be a need to bring them all back. Disney's Frozen star Idina Menzel also had a role, and with all the hype the animated Disney film has been getting since its release, the studio would be smart to bring her back into the fray. Stay tuned for more.
