Love Actually has become one of THE holiday movies to watch. For years people have been wanting more and now it’s getting a sort of continuation.
Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth and Rowan Atkinson will reprise their roles for a short film lasting about 10 minutes. I know it’s barely anything but it’s better than nothing and that’s how Will and Grace got its comeback. You know it will go viral so maybe we will get more.
Love Actually’s director Richard Curtis has written the script, and hopes to explore what the characters from the 2003 movie are up to in 2017. The film is being produced to support Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day fundraiser next month.
Curtis told Deadline he thought it would be a “fun idea” to do a short sketch based on one of his previous films while raising money for an important cause.
“I would never have dreamt 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,” he said.
“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.”
No details on the plot yet but hopefully we will see where everyone is. I don’t know how they will deal with the loss of Alan Rickman.
The Love Actually spinoff will air on the BBC on March 25.
