On Friday 15th March viewers across the UK will be tuning in to watch Red Nose Day on BBC One. And this year, 25 years after the original film was released, the cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral are reuniting for an all-star sequel in support of the cause.
In the trailer for One Red Nose Day and a Wedding, Hugh Grant requests: “the pleasure of your company at the wedding of the year.” Written by Richard Curtis, the short film has been directed by Mike Newell and follows on from the success of the Love Actually sequel in 2017, Red Nose Day Actually. Here’s everything we know about One Red Nose Day and a Wedding so far...
Andie MacDowell, John Hannah and Rowan Atkinson will be joining Grant in the sequel, and Sophie Thompson promises “some surprise guests” will also be making an appearance. With David Bower filmed in front of a pulpit and Atkinson dressed in clerical clothing, it seems we’re in for a church wedding dressed with pink and white floral arrangements.
Grant is dressed traditionally with a single white rose buttonhole compared to MacDowell’s colourful attire – wearing a bright printed fuchsia dress with loose curls pinned back with fresh flowers, her character Carrie seems to be channelling a more Mamma Mia-inspired wedding guest look.
Fiona, played by Kristin Scott Thomas, is as elegant as ever in a black outfit, her trademark look from the original film. James Fleet, David Haig and Simon Kunz also feature in the trailer - there’s no sign of Duckface, Grant’s on-off fiancé played by Anna Chancellor in 1994 but behind the scenes pictures reveal she will be making an appearance.
A notable absence from the sequel will be Charlotte Coleman who passed away in 2001. Coleman played the vibrant Scarlett in the original film.
With a soft colour scheme, candles and fairylights, we’re already excited for what promises to be a star-studded sequel. Grant ironically ends the video by asking viewers: “Please, try not to be late”, a reference to Four Weddings and a Funeral's iconic opening sequence.
Tune in to BBC One on March 15th to catch the sequel.
