A Love Actually sequel is officially happening

You can call it cheesier than a wheel of brie if you want to, but here at Cosmo we think Love Actually is one of the best movies ever.

So the news that the 2003 rom-com is getting a mini-sequel has us more excited than Hugh Grant strip-dancing to "Jump" in that infamous scene from the flick.

As confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, Love Actually’s director Richard Curtis is making a 10-minute mini-sequel to the film set in 2017, set 14 years after the original took place. Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Rowan Atkinson have all signed on for the project, although sadly Emma Thompson, Martin Freeman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Laura Linney and Rodrigo Santoro have unfortunately not.

And obviously, the late Alan Rickman. RIP.

This very exciting development is being made to support Comic Relief, a biannual fundraiser for Red Nose Day, and will air on BBC1 in the UK on March 24 and on NBC in the US on May 25 … and hopefully in Australia sometime around then (there’s always the internet).

"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," director Curtis said in a statement.

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

Mmm, not sure that it’s Liam Neeson.
