Forget Valentine’s Day being the most romantic time of the year, for us it’s whenever we turn on the star-studded romantic comedy Love Actually. But just before you start imagining a full feature length film, we have to note that the sequel will be a special ten-minute short film which is being created in association with UK charity Comic Relief and subsequently Red Nose Day.
Reuniting after 14 years (it was released back in 2003) the film will see 14 of the original characters return including Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson and Bill Nighy who was most recently spotted at our Bazaar Best Dressed booth at the DIFF. Other much-loved characters who will also mark their return will be Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Martine McCutcheon, Andrew Lincoln, Lúcia Moniz, Olivia Olson, Marcus Brigstocke, and Rowan Atkinson.
The English screenwriter Richard Curtis who produced the original film, will be in charge of bringing the romantic comedy back to life. Set to be called Red Nose Day Actually, Curtis who has produced specials for Red Nose Day in previous years for the likes of Blackadder and Mr. Bean to great success is sure to capture our hearts once again. The sequel will show on BBC One in the UK on March 24 and will be replayed once again on NBC’s Red Nose Day Special on May 25.
