Richard Curtis just gave us hope Emma Thompson will be in the Love Actually sequel

Pleeeease

Earlier this week, the best news in the world was confirmed.

Love Actually is getting a sequel.

It may only be a ten minute short film, but will still feature most of the characters from the first film so we're STILL EXCITED.

It's going to be called Red Nose Actually, and will be shown as part of Red Nose Day 2017, Friday 24th March on BBC One.

It will feature Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke, and Rowan Atkinson.

We couldn't help but notice that national treasure and all round bae Emma Thompson wasn't on the list, whose character in the first film gave us the most emotional scenes of the whole entire thing.

But Richard Curtis (the film's writer and director) has just given us hope.

Speaking to Victoria Derbyshire on BBC 2 about Emma's role in the film, he said: "Oddly, we're not quite sure [if she'll be in it]. It's all been done in a great rush and I think not but I'm now thinking again.

"Amazingly, nobody said no. Liam [Neeson] flew over yesterday from America and is going back to America tomorrow. There is a lot of affection for the film."

We're SO excited.
