Love Actually is back with a mini sequel; to air on NBC's Red Nose Day Special 2017

With Red Nose Day (24 March) looming, the mini-Love Actually sequel has been rushed into production, with filming getting underway in London this week. Script editor Emma Freud shared photos of Liam Neeson (Daniel) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Sam) back in their roles, and if that Southbank location looks familiar, it’s because it is where Sam first told his dad about his love for Joanna in the original 2004 film.

 A host of original cast members have already been confirmed to return: 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. Emma Thompson is a notable absence on that list, perhaps due to her on-screen husband not being able to feature as he was played by the late Alan Rickman. It is still questionable whether Thompson will return minus Rickman for the film. Here's a sneak-peak into the film:

Red Nose Day is a UK-wide fundraising event organised by the charity Comic Relief every two years. The website for Red Nose Day states that, "On Red Nose Day everyone is encouraged to cast inhibitions aside, put on a Red Nose and fundraise – celebrities included!

It culminates in a night of cutting edge comedy and moving documentary films on BBC One. Red Nose Day unites the entire nation in trying to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people across Africa and the UK who are facing terrible injustice or living in desperate poverty."

The project will broadcast as part of NBC’s Red Nose Day Special on 25 May 2017.
