For all the romantic movie lovers, there’s great news! After 14 years of the first movie releasing, the hit movie Love Actually is soon going to get its own sequel.
Richard Curtis directed the 2003 romantic Christmas comedy and is believed to be the reason behind this development. However, it will only be a short film where original cast members unite for a cause — Comic Relief's Red Nose Day, a charitable event in the US and UK that benefits children worldwide.
In a statement to BBC, Director Richard Curtis said, “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. Who has aged best? — I guess that’s the big question … or is it so obviously Liam?"
The cast of Love Actually includes Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Andrew Lincoln, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rowan Atkinson. They are also confirmed for the sequel.
The film, hopeful of bringing a moment of nostalgia among the cast members, promises to keep the spirit of the first film while helping aid the Red Nose Day collections.
The "Love Actually" short film is titled Red Nose Day Actually and is still being written. The film airs on March 24.
