    Given the success of Mamma Mia 2, this feels like the obvious next stop on the ABBA gravy train. I'm surprised it's never happened before (has it?)

    In fact, have there ever been any fictional portrayals of the group, outside of spoofs like French & Saunders?

    Would it be in English with weird accents? An American production would probably be too hacky.

    I can well imagine an American Oscar/Emmy bait production with big stars doing silly accents.

    But maybe a Swedish production would be better - in the age of The Bridge/The Killing etc it could still be franchised globally.

    The A*Teens but the roles gender swapped.

    Rebecca Ferguson as Anni-Frid, surely.

    There was one on 5 earlier this year. It was exactly like you'd imagine it.

    No roles for Alicia Vikander?

    Only thinking of the current Swedes in Hollywood.

    It's difficult to cast the boys because there aren't enough tubby actors around.....other than James Cordon

    Peter Saarsgard would have been a good choice for either of the boys when he was younger.
