Are Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum Ever Going to Do the Phantom of the Opera Movie Sequel, Love Never Dies?

2 comments, 4 shares

What kind of evil and sinister musical doesn’t have a sequel? I know it’s probably most of them since musicals tend to have a very dramatic way of killing off their main characters, guaranteeing that there’s nothing that can happen afterwards that stars all of the characters you love…because they’re dead… but can’t I keep dreaming ? Way to break our hearts and leave them broken you soulless, talented Musical writers.

But… fortunately for us, at the end of Phantom of the Opera, Phantom simply disappears, claiming that The Music of the Night is now finished, and that left us with some options.

Of course, all of us real Phantom fans wanted the Phantom and Christine to float off down the creepy, underground river and be wed and to live out their days together in martial bliss, beneath some new opera house , but no, Christine just had to choose handsome ass Raoul with his lovely voice, good looks, an endless pockets . Disgusting , how could she choose security and a life above ground over the passionate, if controlling, Phantom?

Gerard, Emmy. We get it. You have lives. But get this, I cannot give a flying fuck about anything else until I get this sequel!! I need another musical to watch 6 times a year and cry to when I drink too much wine, and cry doubly when I’m sober. After I stumbled across the Australian cast recording of Love Never Dies, I became obsessed all over again.

That’s why I really don’t understand what they (the composer, Gerard, Amy, anybody involved in the making of the original Phantom of the Opera movie/musical) think we’re supposed to do with the rest of our lives if we never get this movie sequel. I’ve been waiting for this since the credits started rolling in the first one. Seeing Love Never Dies only tripled my need to see it redone as a musical movie with the cast who starred in the first Phantom of the Opera movie.

I’ve seen play versions of three different casts, I went to see it on Broadway, and I’ve downloaded the movies. What else can I do to pass the time while I wait for Love Never Dies to be recreated with Gerard Butler and Emmy Rosum? Get tattoos? Plan another trip to New York City to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway again? Put together a Phantom of the Opera scrapbook? What will it take for the Phantom fans to see this Beloved movie get it’s beautiful sequel?

I must mention how brilliantly Love Never Dies has been written. If you listen closely with your crying ear holes, you can hear strains of orchestral music that were featured as background music in Phantom of the Opera. That’s right, the musicals have been tied together so that you get the feeling that you have been here before. Time has passed, and we are back here again, fighting for the same love.

We have some new characters that join our old characters, plenty of drama, and once again, Phantom and Raoul are in competition for Christine’s heart. Will Christine make the right choice this time? Or did she make the right choice the first time? Will we finally get to see her and Phantom together? I guess we may never know… Unless you watch that Australian musical recording that I mentioned earlier.

But every actor and actress bring something different to a character and to a performance. This is how we fall in love with nuance. No one can recreate the energy that Gerard and Emmy made us a part of, that they shared with us, and so, I wait most impatiently for the Phantom of the Opera musical movie cast to reunite for Love Never Dies.

The opening song from Love Never Dies should be enough to get you to become a proper fan.

Now imagine this with a castle full of elegantly costumed dancers executing perfect choreography! swoons

  1. I agree with you 100%. I’ve always loved “The Phantom of the Opera” and saw almost all the movies starting with the original silent one, Robert Englund’s horror version, and then I saw 10 years ago the 2004 movie starring Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Minnie Driver, Miranda Richardson and the rest of the very talented cast. That day I discovered what a truly talented actor, singer, and producer Gerard Butler is and have followed, supported, and promoted him ever since. I own the special edition DVD and Soundtrack and listen to them all the time. I even tweeted to Andrew Lloyd Webber and told him he needs to make a motion picture of “Love Never Dies” and recast Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Miranda Richardson, and rest of cast!

    1. Did Andrew Lloyd Webber just so happen to reply to you?? A sad and slightly desperate lover of musicals wants to know!! *cries* I would also like to see Minnie Driver in more singing roles. She not only has a beautiful voice, but is HILARIOUS. I could definitely see her as a lead role in another romantic musical.

I love it when you share.

Do you see shadows in the daylight? If not, let this poetry collection take you to a new place where dreams are not dreams and nightmares are the beginning of all things fantastical. Not only ghouls and goblins can scare you. Fear can take the shape of your favorite uncle or your father. Horror can happen in the daylight. This is what Nightmares, Night Scares, Daydreams will show you. Maple Summers’ second poetry collection will bend your way of thought with its new usage of familiar words. She will bring you to a different realm of a new reality, a place of hopes and dreams and fantastic failure. She explores more familial relations, while also talking about romantic relationships in a new way. She speaks on friendship, fear, retribution, loss, bitterness, and emotional decay. Shedding light on controversial issues and her place as an African-American minority in a white society, Summers also delves into the darkness without fear that you will see the darkness inside of her. She wishes to share that with you in a way that will bind you together. She will show you the fear of living and the fear of death and also explore self-reflection and the meaning of self-confidence. Wishing to challenge you to think of words in a new way, a noun is not always a noun, as Nelson bends the rules of grammar by riddling this poetry with a naturally free flowing hand of colorful language. And she does not leave out the sex. She takes taboo sexual issues and drags them into the light forcing you to confront things that you may not want to think about. But there are others out there suffering too. And Nelson is here to tell you that you are not alone. She speaks directly to the reader without fluffed language or nonsensical fanfare. This is Halloween where we are all dressing as someone else but all we want is to be ourselves. How do you think of Halloween? Lori Jenessa tackles the question, speaking about the holiday itself and what it represents to her. And just for ghoulish fun and witchery, she has also included fun spells that are a little more than just magic. They are flashlights of her personal insights. Let her share this journey with you. Welcome, sweet dears, to Nightmares, Night Scares, Daydreams.

Playing the tank drum is a spiritual thing that frees you. Its sound echoes and its vibrations heal and give you the feeling that they are soaking into you like warm water. Absorb these vibrations through your ears and feel them in your heart. I imagine that I am invoking the spirits of somebody’s ancestors. The ones who were kind, yet strong, peace-loving, but fierce and protective of others. Ones who believe in hearts and souls and the importance of being forgiving and unforgiving. Isn’t life about balance? I reach for balance with every note and beat of the drum. There are highs and lows, quick songs and slower ones. Sometimes I can’t help myself. After I get warmed up, I tend to play faster and faster, but isn’t that another reflection of the rhythm of life?

I hope that this music gives you a taste of some freedom. That it takes you out of yourself and the world and lets you float. Maybe it will be the soundtrack to your feelings of peace and relaxation, and you, like every note that lifts from the drum, will become air.
