FANS of Love Actually are in for a treat this Red Nose Day.
The film’s original cast members are reuniting for a special ten-minute short film for Comic Relief, directed by Richard Curtis.
Red Nose Day Actually will revisit the characters to see what they’re up to in 2017.
Returning are Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Andrew Lincoln.
It will also feature Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson.
Curtis, the film’s original director and writer, said it would be a “nostalgic moment” for the old cast, but admitted that he was most interested to see who had aged the most gracefully.
“I guess that’s the big question…or is it so obviously Liam?” he said.
“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials on TV things I’ve worked on – Blackadder, The Vicar of Dibley, and Mr Bean.”
“It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based on one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America.
“I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do ten minutes to see what everyone is now up to.”
Since the film came out in 2003, many of the stars have gone from newcomers to screen superstars.
Curtis added: “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.
“We hope to make something that’ll be fun – very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day – and which we hope will help bring lots of viewers and cash to the Red Nose Day shows.”
This year’s Red Nose Day takes place on March 24th.
