Who wants another piece of wedding cake? Or an extra slice of beloved British rom-com, anyway?
Twenty-five years after the release of Four Weddings and a Funeral, the movie’s cast — including Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, and Kristin Scott Thomas — has reunited for a charity-benefiting short-film sequel. Titled One Red Nose Day and a Wedding, the short airs Friday night in the U.K. on the BBC as part of the Red Nose Day campaign to end child poverty. It will then air May 23 in the U.S., on NBC, for the Stateside version of Red Nose Day.
One Red Nose Day and a Wedding is directed by Mike Newell and written by Richard Curtis, both of whom performed the same duties on the original. Four Weddings and a Funeral actors 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 will also appear in the short.
“It’s nice to be part of something for such a great cause,” Hannah said when EW visited the film’s shoot in London before Christmas, “and also, just catching up with people after 25 years.”
It has also been announced that the short’s cast will include Baby Driver actress Lily James and Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander.
