Love Actually Cast to Reunite for Red Nose Day Special

Posted on February 6, 2017 at 3:59 pm

The cast of Love Actually, which was released in 2003, will now be reuniting for a short film made for Comic Relief. Director Richard Curtis will once again be taking the lead in the film, which will be shown on the 24th March 2017 during the Comic Relief television special. This is an apt choice, as Curtis was also one of the founders of Comic Relief back in 1985.

During the short TV special, the cast will once again be playing the same characters fourteen years on. Many of the originals will be appearing, including Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson and Martine McCutcheon.

Whilst Curtis says that he would never write a full sequel to Love Actually, he says that he is excited to create the short film and to catch up with the characters now. Many of the original cast have been able to return for the film and it will help to make Comic Relief a great success once again.
