Love Actually - Love Actually Sequel Wanted By Universal

Universal Pictures president Eddie Cunningham wants a 'Love Actually' sequel.

The movie boss admits he would love to ''green light'' a follow-up to the 2003 Richard Curtis-directed romantic comedy - starring Hugh Grant, Colin Firth and Emma Thompson - because so many films have tried to copy the format of inter-woven love stories but have not managed to capture the same feeling.

He 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 Curtis has achieved it. It really makes you appreciate the beauty of his writing.''

'Love Actually' - which also starred Bill Nighy, Keira Knightley and Laura Linney - made $246 million worldwide on its release in 2003.

'Valentine's Day' and 'New Year's Eve' have both tried to follow the same format but have not achieved similar box office or critical acclaim.
