Richard Curtis dismisses ‘Love Actually’ sequel

'Can you imagine anything less likely than a reunion?' said the writer/director

Richard Curtis has dismissed any suggestion of a sequel to his hit Christmas movie ‘Love Actually’.

The writer/director said he doesn’t think he could get the whole cast back together again to make a movie, however, he did hint that he was going to try and get in touch with “some of them” this Christmas.

He told The Daily Beast: “Can you imagine anything less likely than a reunion? It’s so interesting with people who are famous and busy. You sort of know we’d all enjoy it, but when the call came in, they’d probably think it was duty.


“What I might try and do is see some of them and get in touch with some of them when it gets to this Christmas. Andrew [Lincoln] is away now a lot but I used to see him a bunch, and I’m sure I’ll send Liam [Neeson] a Christmas card. I may just politely remind everyone that it’s been ten years.”

Love Actually was a worldwide success for Curtis when it was released in 2003. The Christmas-themed romantic comedy brought together the cream of British acting talent in a huge ensemble cast, including Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Bill Nighy and Rowan Atkinson.
