"Love Actually 2" is one sequel that's been on the platter of Hugh Grant's fans for some time now. The excitement heightened after his photo was posted on Twitter Sunday afternoon. Grant was seen filming some scenes of the movie in Central London.
Blame the internet frenzy on Emma Freud, "Love Actually 2" project director, who posted Hugh Grant's photo. A photo of Martine McCutcheon, who plays his love interest in the movie, was also posted on the same day.
"Love Actually 2" follows the story of 2003 romantic comedy movie that deals with the lives and loves of eight couples including Hugh Grant as. The movie, with a Christmas setting in London, England, was a box office hit with a meager budget of only $45 million and gross sales of $247 million worldwide.
Freud posted more photo spoilers for "Love Actually 2", including the clapperboard of the project, according to Mirror. She also posted photos of supposed journalists attending a press conference. The photos, taken in a location similar to the one touted to be 10 Downing Street, suggested the return of Hugh Grant as Prime Minister.
Also returning in the cast of "Love Actually 2" are Liam Neeson as Daniel and Keira Knightley as Juliet. David the Prime Minister, played here by Hugh Grant, is guaranteed to make the girls' hearts flutter once again as he flirts with Natalie, played here by Martine McCutcheon who is now his wife.
Fans should, however, be aware that "Love Actually 2" starring Hugh Grant is not a feature film, but is just a short film done to honor Red Nose Day, according to Film. This fundraising event is organized every two years by Comic Relief, to encourage everyone not only cast their inhibitions but also to raise funds and make a difference in the lives of people living in poverty.
"Love Actually 2" is now in the production stage and will be seen on television late this month. The cast of the first movie has grown in more ways than one but if there is one thing that the sequel can guarantee, that would be the movie's humor.
