The cast and creators of iconic Brit comedy Four Weddings And A Funeral are reuniting to make charity short film One Red Nose Day And A Wedding.
Richard Curtis, who wrote the original film and is the co-founder of charity telethon Red Nose Day, has written the short for the 2019 edition of the charity fundraiser. It is currently in production.
Cast will include Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas, John Hannah, Rowan Atkinson, James Fleet, David Haig, Sophie Thompson, David Bower, Robin McCaffrey, Anna Chancellor, Rupert Vansittart, Simon Kunz, Sara Crowe and Timothy Walker. They will be joined by special guests.
Four Weddings director Mike Newell is returning to direct the new installment, which picks up 25 years after the original film. The short will premiere on BBC One on Friday, March 15. It will also feature as part of NBC’s programming for Red Nose Day USA in May. The film has the support of Four Weddings rights holder MGM.
Curtis commented, “We’re all definitely older – I suspect no wiser. It’s been really enjoyable working out what’s happened to all the characters – and now they get back together for the 5th wedding. Where, as usual, not everything will go as planned.”
Next year marks the 25th anniversary of box office sensation Four Weddings. Red Nose Day Actually, a short follow up to Love Actually, premiered during Red Nose Day’s 2017 edition.
