Love Actually is all set for a sequel and we are excited!
According to Popsugar, a new instalment of the the hit 2003 British rom-com is currently in the works and promises to reunite much of the original cast, including Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson.
Emma Thompson has not been listed to return; her onscreen husband, Alan Rickman, having sadly passed away last year.
It’s not a full-fledged movie though – instead, it’s a short film. “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,” director Richard Curtis told The Independent.
“Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question … or is it so obviously Liam? We are delighted and grateful that most of the cast was able to take part and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later.” he added.
The film has finally began shooting and the first pictures are out. The pictures show Liam Neeson (Daniel), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), and Olivia Olson (Joanna) shooting for a scene.
