We’re all getting a very belated Valentine’s Day gift, because now-classic romantic comedy “Love Actually” is getting a sequel.
But even though most of the cast will reportedly return, it’ll just be a 10-minute short film for charity.
The original film’s director Richard Curtis has written the script, and it’s being produced to support UK charity Comic Relief, which holds its Red Nose Day fundraiser next month.
“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,” Curtis explained.
“Who has aged best? I guess that’s the big question — or is it so obviously Liam [Neeson]?
“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.”

Cast members reported to be reprising their roles include Liam Neeson, his son Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Hugh Grant and Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln, and Colin Firth and Lucia Moniz, and Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson.
The special will air on March 24th in the UK, and two months later in the US, but no word on an Australian screening yet.
