Whatever Happened to Amy Adams and James Marsden’s Enchanted Sequel?

Tell someone you’re going to be interviewing James  Marsden and the first thing they’ll probably say is, “Ask him about Enchanted!”

That’s what happened to me the other day.

Specifically, everyone wants to know where in the world is the sequel to that  fairy-tale blockbuster? Weren’t he and Amy  Adams signed on to reprise their roles as Prince Edward and  Giselle?

“We all hoped it would happen,” Marsden told me the other day while   promoting today’s DVD release of his most recent flick, Straw Dogs.

“I  don’t understand why they never did it. It was a very successful   movie…But at some point when the gray hairs start coming, you can’t  really  play the quintessential animated prince anymore. Amy and I were  like, ‘If we’re  going to do it, we should do it before we’re 40.'”

They don’t have have too much time left—Adams is 37 and Marsden is 38.  “If  it  happens, great!” Marsden said. “If not, what are you going to  do?”

How about make other movies?!

In  Straw Dogs, Marsden takes on the role originally played  by Dustin  Hoffman in director Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 movie of  the same name. In the updated   film, Marsden is a Jaguar-driving, screenwriting  urbanite who moves  with  his wife (Kate  Bosworth) back to her  southern hometown where they are brutalized by a  group of violent townies led  by a violent rapist (Alexander  Skarsgård).

Marsden’s followed the thriller with Hop, a family-friendly  Easter-themed flick.

“I actually filmed Hop right after I did Straw Dogs,” said  Marsden, who begins a multi-episode gig as Tina  Fey‘s  love interest on 30 Rock next month. “Straw  Dogs was such an intense  experience that I definitely wanted to lighten it  up a little bit.”
