Universal Pictures boss Eddie Cunningham wants sequel to Love Actually

13 May 2012

While the original film came out in 2003, it has emerged that Universal Pictures president Eddie Cunningham would give the green light for a follow up to Richard Curtis' Love Actually.

The Christmas themed ensemble romantic comedy starred Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, Sienna Guillory, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Kris Marshall, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keira Knightley, Hugh Grant, Laura Linney, Alan Rickman, Rodrigo Santoro, Ant McPartlin, Declan Donnelly, Billy Bob Thornton, Rowan Atkinson, Elisha Cuthbert, January Jones, Ivana Milicevic, Shannon Elizabeth, Denise Richards, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Sangster and Martin Freeman has inspired a collection of similarly styled films including Valentine's Day and He's Just Not That Into You.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Cunningham said "I think there should be a Love Actually 2. I'd give it a green light.

I think many American movies try to emulate that brilliant format where the stories interweave and no-one's on screen for more than six minutes, but only Richard has achieved it. It really makes you appreciate the beauty of his writing."

So Curtis, who recently announced his return to the director's chair since 2009's The Boat That Rocked entitled About Time which saw Rachel McAdams signed on the lead might have more on his plate. Only time will tell.
