It’s the film we love to love – since it first hit our screens 14 years ago, Love Actually has cemented an important place in our hearts and lives. To the delight of fans everywhere, it has been announced that the entire cast of the film will reunite for a short sequel film.
The sequel will be a short 10 minute film, but regardless of the length, we are super excited. Variety reports that the 2003 film’s director Richard Curtis has reunited with the original cast to create a short film for the U.K. charity Comic Relief.
The sequel will check in with the characters from the original film, is titled Red Nose Day Actually and will premiere as part of Red Nose Day in the U.K. – a great cause.
All of our favourite stars will be involved in the sequel including, Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon; Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln; Liam Neeson and his onscreen stepson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster; and Colin Firth and Lucia Moniz; along with Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke, Olivia Olson, and Rowan Atkinson.
“I would never have dreamed of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to,” Curtis said in a statement. “Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question—or is it so obviously Liam? We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part, and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and re-creating their characters 14 years later. We hope to make something that’ll be fun and that we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows.”
Red Nose Day Actually, which will begin shooting this week, will be available in the U.K. on March 24 before going international on May 25. Needless to say, this has made our day.
