There is no doubt that in a very short time, the 2003 holiday film Love Actually has become a modern Christmas classic.
With a star-studded cast and heart-warming and heartbreaking,stories, millions of fans love to watch and re-watch the film, so the news that there is a sort of sequel happening has already gained a lot of buzz.
Much of the original cast is coming together for a 10-minute Love Actually “sequel” in order to raise money for Red Nose Day. Red Nose Day is an annual fundraising event which has involved tons of celebrities over the years in order to benefit children living in poverty worldwide and this year’s event on March 24 will include Red Nose Day Actually which will be written by the original film’s writer and director, Richard Curtis.
With only just over a month before Red Nose Day, filming is already underway and Red Nose Day director Emma Freud, who is also Curtis’ partner in real life, has shared some on-set photos. Thanks to the photos we know that Liam Neeson and Thomas Brodie-Sangster will be back and sharing adorable moments as Daniel and Sam, and Olivia Olson will be back as Joanna, so we will finally get to know what happened between Sam and Joanna!
“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. We hope to make something that’ll be fun — very much in the spirit of the original film and of Red Nose Day,” Curtis said of the short sequel.
