Richard Curtis, who wrote the 1994 movie and is also the co-creator of Comic Relief, has penned the script for the Red Nose Day sequel which will rejoin the characters 25 years on from where the film left off. Mike Newell is back on board to direct.
“We’re all definitely older – I suspect no wiser,” said Curtis. “It’s been really enjoyable working out what’s happened to all the characters – and now they get back together for the fifth wedding, where, as usual, not everything will go as planned.”
It has not yet been revealed who will be tying the knot in the sequel, but it will also feature returning cast members James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker.
