There's A Love Actually Sequel On The Way
The gang are reuniting and we can't cope.
Valentine's Day might have been and gone, but romance is still in the air with the news that Love Actually is getting a sequel. Well, we say a sequel… it's actually going to be a ten-minute short, but still… we'll take what we can get!
Creator Richard Curtis is getting the whole band back together for Red Nose Day Actually, a Comic Relief special that will pick up with the original cast of characters some 14 years after the original film took place. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln and Colin Firth are all set to return, with Curtis having written the script himself.
Rowan Atkinson, Martine McCutcheon and Thomas Brodie-Sangster are also on board for the reunion, as is Bill Nighy, reprising his role as drug-addled rock grandad, Billy Mack. "We've been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part," says Curtis. "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."
The short will air on BBC1 on Red Nose Day, which takes place on Friday March 24. Prepare to have Love Is All Around worm its way into your brain all over again…
