'Four Weddings and a Funeral' is getting a sequel after 25 years

Must See 22/02/2019

It's been a quarter of a century since 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' came out - can you believe it?!

And after all these years, the original cast will reunite this year for Red Nose Day. 

Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell and Kristin Scott Thomas will all star in a new short film, written by Richard Curtis. Titled 'One Red Nose Day and a Wedding', the new film will follow the same characters as the original 1994 film, over two decades later.

"We're all definitely older - I suspect no wiser. It's been really enjoyable working out what's happened to all the characters. Now they get back together for the fifth wedding, where, as usual, not everything will go as planned," Curtis said.

Also starring John Hannah, Rowan Atkinson, James Fleet and David Haig, the film will once again be directed by Mike Newell, and will be released on the 15th March.

Sadly, Charlotte Coleman will not reappear as Hugh Grant's sister, as she passed away in 2001 at the age of 33.

'Four Weddings' arguably was the launchpad for Hugh Grant's career, and inspired the making of similar British romantic comedies like 'Notting Hill', 'Bridget Jones' Diary' and 'Love Actually'. It also spawned the single 'Love is All Around' by Wet Wet Wet, which claimed the number one spot in the charts for 15 weeks in 1994.
