Theater director Phyllida Lloyd is in talks to helm the big screen version of ABBA musical "Mamma Mia!" for Universal Pictures.

Set to shift from theater to film industry, stage director Phyllida Lloyd is engaged in negotiations to helm "Mamma Mia!", an adaptation of the popular ABBA musical created by Judy Craymer and Catherine Johnson, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

A joint production between Universal Pictures and Tom Hanks' production company Playtone, the project will likely stay true to its original material which follows a bride-to-be as she locates three men who might be her father and invites them to her wedding.

Hanks will seat as the executive producer alongside his wife Rita Wilson plus ABBA members and songwriters Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. Meanwhile Johnson has already been assigned to pen the script with Playtone's Gary Goetzman and Craymer producing.
