The Cast Of 'Four Weddings And Funeral' Reunite For First Time In 25 Years

The cast of Four Weddings and a Funeral are reuniting for the first time in 25 years, and fans now have their first glimpse at the cast in promotional imagery.

Comic Relief announced that One Red Nose Day and a Wedding will premiere during Red Nose Day 2019 on BBC One on Friday, 15th March.

And viewers will be treated to a short film on Red Nose Day and it has the full support of the original production company, MGM.

Imagery for the new short film has already been released showing the cast members all back together, and it's pure nostalgia.

The film has been written by Richard Curtis, who scripted the original film and is also the co-founder of Red Nose Day.

"We're all definitely older - I suspect no wiser," said Curtis of the new charitable project. "It's been really enjoyable working out what's happened to all the characters - and now they get back together for the fifth wedding, where, as usual, not everything will go as planned."

Four Weddings and a Funeral director Mike Newell has returned to direct the short flick which is set to pick up 25 years after the original.

And OG cast members Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, 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 are all making a return too.

Comic Relief says that there will be some very special guest stars, although is keeping them under-wraps for now.

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding follows on from the success of last year's Red Nose Day Actually, a short follow up film to Christmas classic Love Actually.

The original Four Weddings and a Funeral became a cult classic film after it was released in 1994, and followed Hugh Grant and a group of friends as they each encountered romances. It made $245.7 million (£189.45 million) at the box office upon its release.

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding will premiere exclusively during Red Nose Day 2019 on BBC One on Friday, 15th March.
