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

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, guranteeing 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.

What if Peter Pan was black? Black kids can't go to Neverland? What if Peter isn't the star of this story? In this retelling of an old classic, my "Wendy" runs the show. It's like Disney but with a lot more darkness and a lot more girl power. It's...Neverland by Maple Summers.
