We’re over the moon with the news!
Due to be released on Red Nose Day (March 24, just a little over a month from now!), it’s been almost 14 years since Love Actually hit our screens.
What can we expect? It’s going to be a ten-minute short film written by Richard Curtis, the original writer and director. We’ll get to see what each of the characters is up to in 2017 and most of the original cast is on board, including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Andrew Lincoln, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who was just a tween when we saw him in the movie.
Remember when the Prime Minister fell in love?
“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials on TV things I’ve worked on— Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley, and Mr Bean,” Curtis said.
“It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based on one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America.
“I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do ten minutes to see what everyone is now up to.”
Who’s not coming back? Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Rodrigo Santoro, Martin Freeman, Joanna Page, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Kris Marshall. Well, what can we say? Their loss!
