1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christmas came really early this month when news broke that a mini Love Actually reunion is happening. The classic holiday movie, which has spawned a loyal and dedicated fan base (and some haters) since its 2003 release, is getting a 10-minute-long short film in honor of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day telethon. The short will check in with the film's beloved characters 14 years after the events of the first movie, and on Thursday, we got the first sneak peek at what's to come. A few of the film's original cast members, Liam Neeson (Daniel), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam), and Olivia Olson (Joanna), were spotting filming a few scenes in London. If you need a small refresher, Neeson played a man who recently lost his wife and was suddenly the sole caretaker of her young son, Sam.

Newswire: Love Actually writer is crafting a mini-sequel for charity

15 February 2017 12:19 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Like many people who watched Love Actually, we have lingering questions about the 2003 film. For example, did Harry and Karen stay together after his sort-of infidelity? They’re spotted together at the airport, but did she really forgive him? Also, were Sam and Joanna able to work out some kind of long-distance thing? And did Richard Curtis seriously think that what Mark did to Juliet and Peter wasn’t fucked up? Some of those queries may be answered sooner than you’d think—BuzzFeed reports that Curtis is working on a “mini-sequel” to his indefatigably popular rom-com.

The forthcoming comedy skit will do more than just potentially satisfy our curiosity. Titled Red Nose Day Actually in honor of the annual day of philanthropy, the short film will benefit Comic Relief, a charity that helps people in the UK and Africa. Curtis said via press release that he’d never ...
