Colin Firth was looking his usual delicious self on the Scotland set of The Railway Man today (May 14th), a film that follows a victim of World War II’s “Death Railway” as he tracks down those responsible for his torture. Stellan Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman and Jeremy Irvine also star in the Jonathan Teplitzky-directed flick, based on a true story.
And for news equivalent only to rumblings of Bridget Jones’s Diary 3: Universal Pictures president Eddie Cunningham says he wants a sequel to Love Actually! Many a craptastic film has tried to follow suit and emulate the formula that made 2003′s ensemble a magical jar full of fairy dust and angel tears. Alas, those films (New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day) have fallen flat.
“I think there should be a Love Actually 2. I’d give it a green light,” Cunningham told the Daily Mail (via Contact Music). ”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 Curtis has achieved it. It really makes you appreciate the beauty of his writing.”
OMFG DO IT DO IT DO IT.
