Comic Relief has announced that One Red Nose Day and a Wedding is currently in production with the full support from Four Weddings and a Funeral rights holder Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios Inc (MGM).
The short film will reunite the cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral for the first time in 25 years.
Richard Curtis, who wrote the original film and is the co-founder of Red Nose Day, has written the short especially for the 2019 edition of Red Nose Day.
One Red Nose Day and a Wedding will feature original Four Weddings cast members 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 in the short film by some very special guest stars.
‘Four Weddings’ director Mike Newell is returning to direct this new instalment, which picks up 25 years after the original film.
One Red Nose Day and a Wedding follows on from the huge success of Red Nose Day Actually, a short follow up to Love Actually that premiered during Red Nose Day’s 2017 edition
Richard Curtis said: “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.”
One Red Nose Day and a Wedding is a one off special that will premiere exclusively during Red Nose Day 2019 on the BBC on Friday, 15th March. It will also feature as part of NBC’s programming for Red Nose Day USA in May.
