Tweens ready for another summer at “Camp Rock” should start packing their bags, as a sequel is in the works. Pending a script, production will begin in spring or summer 2009, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Disney Channel original movie starred rockers the Jonas Brothers and was a showcase for Demi Lovato, widely touted as the next Miley Cyrus. Both are launching their own TV shows on the network, “J.O.N.A.S.” and “Welcome to Mollywood,” respectively.
The “Camp” premiere was a hit last weekend, scoring 8.9 millions views on Friday and another 3.6 million on ABC on Saturday night, making it Friday’s highest rated show and the year’s biggest cable entertainment program.
But it pales in comparison to the channel’s “High School Musical 2,” which scored a staggering 17.3 million viewers last year and has its own sequel due in October.
