Fourteen years after “Love Actually” won our hearts with its interlocking stories of eight couples looking for “the one,” many of the cast have reunited to make a 10-minute film that will air as part of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day specials in both the UK (March 24) and the US (May 25). Writer/director Richard Curtis, who is heavily involved in this good cause, has crafted an update.
Keira Knightley and Chiwetel Ejiofor filmed a sequence in which they once again play Juliet and Peter. As you’ll recall, in the original film the couple had just married and it was revealed that his best friend Mark (Andrew Lincoln) was secretly in love with her.
When Juilet discovered this, Mark decided to confess his undying love to her via cue cards but then walk away. Well it looks like he has returned and he is carrying an even bigger supply of white boards on which he has written a message.
But this time it is to tout for Comic Relief as you can see in the trailer above. The cards read, in order, say, “Hello, I just wanted to ask without hope or agenda (and just because it’s nearly Red Nose Day) that you’ll join us for a very special reunion called ‘Red Nose Day Actually.”
