Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll probably know by now that there’s ACTUALLY going to be a Love Actually sequel – for Comic Relief.

Yep, to celebrate Red Nose Day 2017, Richard Curtis, who wrote the original, will be penning a new script and although it won’t be a full film (ten minutes to be exact), most of the original cast members will reprise their roles.

Take a deep breath…

Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke, and Rowan Atkinson will all revisit their 2003 characters.

Now, the cast have started shooting with Liam Neeson (Daniel) and his on-screen son Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam) reuniting on set on Thursday (February 16).

And Liam’s still wearing that same old turtle neck…

And… if that riverside location looks familiar, then it’s where father and son first talked about Sam falling in love with Joanna in the original movie.

Here’s a clip…

AND… script editor Emma Freud also shared a picture of Richard Curtis on set with Joanna (Olivia Olson), who’s now a grown-up, actually.

Speaking about reuniting with the cast for Red Nose Day Actually, Richard Curtis said: “Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of 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 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 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to.

“Who has aged best? – I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam?”

He 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.”
