Love Actually 2 Movie Is Not Happening, Actually
Love Actually came out a whopping 14 years ago but today, the internet's going crazy over news of a SEQUEL.
It's that 'fake news' rearing its ugly head again - yes, the cast will reunite and yes, they'll star in a follow up to the 2003 rom com (squuuuueeeeeeee!) but it will only be 10 minutes long.
omg as if love actually 2 is being made!!!!!!!

In a special effort for Comic Relief, director Richard Curtis will bring Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Rowan Atkinson, Keira Knightley *AND* Colin Firth back together so we can find out what they've been up to.
No mention of Martine Martine McCutcheon, Emma Thompson, Laura Linney, the super hot geek whose name we can't remember, the kid who jumped security in the airport, the lobster, OR THE OCTOPUS.
Plus, no Alan Rickman *stifles a sob*.
It's all to raise money for Red Nose Day (now a huge charity TV special in the UK *and* US) and it's still mega super crazy exciting, of course. But we really wanna know what happened to that lobster.
At least we'll get to see the Prime Minister, the old-time rock star, the newlyweds and that quirky shop assistant do their thing in 2017 - and we can't wait!
“Over the years I’ve enjoyed doing Red Nose Day specials of TV things I’ve worked on — Blackadder, The Vicar Of Dibley and Mr Bean", said Curtis.
"It seemed like a fun idea this year to do a special sketch based one of my films, since Red Nose Day is now in both the UK and America. I would never have dreamt of writing a sequel to Love Actually, but I thought it might be fun to do 10 minutes to see what everyone is now up to.
"Who has aged best? – I guess that’s the big question… or is it so obviously Liam? We’ve been delighted and grateful that so many of the cast are around and able to take part — and it’ll certainly be a nostalgic moment getting back together and recreating their characters 14 years later."
Proof that love is still all around <3
