Four Weddings and a Funeral is returning for a Red Nose Day special

The cast and creators of ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ are reuniting for a Red Nose Day special.
The writer of the iconic 1994 comedy, Richard Curtis – who is the co-founder of charity telethon – has penned a special short staring the original cast of the film called ‘One Red Nose Day and a Wedding’ for the 2019 edition of the charity fundraiser.
The special will mark the 25th anniversary of the box office sensation and the cast will include Hugh Grant, who played brooding leading man Charles, and Andie MacDowell, who adopted the character of the beautiful American heart-breaker, Carrie.
Also returning to the cast of the classic romance is 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.
The group of actors will be joined by unknown special guests and the original director Mike Newell will return to shoot the new installment, which will premiere on BBC One on Friday, March 15.
The new film will pick up 25 years after the first movie – which ended with Charles jilting his first love Henrietta at the altar to start a relationship and have a young son with Carrie – and Richard has admitted that while the characters are older, they may not have learned from their previous mistakes.
He 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."
