Enchanted Sequel Moves Ahead
The Proposal's Anne Fletcher will direct

04 February 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

It's not surprising, given the success of Amy Adams' first warbling, gown-clad turn, that Disney would press ahead with a sequel to Enchanted. And now the Mouse House has hired both a writer (I Am Sam's Jessie Nelson) and a director (Anne Fletcher of The Proposal) to get it in gear.

Considering that the original floundered for years in development limbo, the studio would like this one to flounce in front of cameras a little quicker, with, according to Variety, the aim of possibly having it in cinemas next year. Fletcher should be a good fit, since she's a former choreographer who can handle a dance scene with the best of 'em.

Now, though, the big question will be whether Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden and possibly Susan Sarandon would all return for another go-around. We're guessing they'd be up for it, given the original's massive success and (general) critical acclaim, but with all of them very much in demand, there might be scheduling problems.

And what will the plot be? No one is saying yet. We'd throw out a guess at Adams's Giselle being flung back into animated fairytale-land, but with the likely tight schedule, we doubt they could get that much created in time...

Liked the first one a lot. Wouldn't hold out much hope for this being in any way good if they're gonna rush it out :( More
