The sequel to one of the most popular romantic comedies of all time will arrive on March 24. Filming of the surprise sequel started filming this week, 14 years after the movie was released. The sequel won’t be a movie, but instead a 10-minute film that is going to be a part of BBC One’s Red Nose Day telethon.
Although we won’t get another movie with the entire cast, fans are still incredibly happy to see that they will have a chance to see what the characters are doing in 2017. All of the original stars that are in the movie are expected to be featured in the sequel as well. This includes Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Rowan Atkinson, Liam Neeson, and Andrew Licoln.
The director and writer of “Love Actually,” Richard Curtis, did an interview yesterday in which he said that he was surprised that no one declined the offer to appear in the sequel. “Liam flew over yesterday from America and is going back to America tomorrow. There is a lot of affection for the film,” said Richard.
Currently, only Emma Thompson is not confirmed to appear in the sequel. When asked about whether she would appear in the short sequel, Curtis said: “Oddly, we’re not quite sure. It’s all been done in a great rush and I think not but I’m now thinking again.”
