The 'Love Actually' Cast Is Coming Back For A Sequel So Cancel All Your Plans
"Love Actually" has been pulling on our heartstrings around Christmastime for 13 years, and we still have a butt-load of questions regarding some characters.
Hopefully, these storylines will all tie up nicely in a neat little package when a 10-minute short film for Comic Relief and Red Nose Day airs, considering all of the original cast is on board.
(I know, I said that so casually, let me rephrase: HOLY SHIT! THERE'S GOING TO BE A 10-MINUTE SEQUEL TO "LOVE ACTUALLY," AND THE ENTIRE ORIGINAL CAST IS GOING TO BE ON IT, AND I AM LOSING MY GODDAMN MIND.)
Big names like Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Andrew Lincoln have already agreed to appear, as well as Lucia Moniz, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson.
The original writer and director, Richard Curtis, is excited to revisit the characters.
Although, he admits he's never thought about creating a sequel to the beloved Christmas movie.
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 recreating their characters 14 years later.
Still, I have some questions...
Is Billy Mack still alive and on top of the charts making fun of boy bands like One Direction?
Did Juliet, Peter and Mark finally have that threesome I assume would happen at least once during their marriage?
How will they deal with Alan Rickman's death?
Did Sarah finally bone Karl or are they forever going to feel awkward about that one holiday party where they almost had sex?
Is Daniel still the sexiest kindest stepdad ever or what?
Is Joanna still Sam's only one?!
Curtis, if you need any ideas, hit a girl up. I have some theories and plenty of fan fiction.
The "Love Actually" sketch will appear on Red Nose Day 2017 on Friday, March 24 on BBC One and on May 25 in the US on NBC.
