2016’s HEARTBREAK HOTEL getting a sequel

The 2006 Swedish film Heartbreak Hotel is set to get a sequel after Aftonbladet reports that director Colin Nutley is planning a road trip sequel.

Titled Walking in Memphis, the sequel will reunite stars Helena Bergström and Maria Lundqvist as they road trip to Graceland in Memphis, aka Elvis Presley’s home.

Heartbreak Hotel is, of course, an Elvis Presley song, and Walking in Memphis is a song by Marc Cohn.

Nutley told Aftonbladet that he had received requests to get to know the women better, and decided to have them road trip to the USA, a country neither have been to.

Not much is known about the sequel, but it will be shot in Sweden and the USA in spring 2018.
