P.S. I Love You is officially getting a sequel. Are you excited?
Thirteen years ago we experienced the tragic death of Gerard Butler's character and the heartbreaking letters he left for his grieving widow from beyond the grave in P.S. I Love You. The film left us in a sea of tears every single rewatch. But now, we're getting a sequel that could potentially bring all the tears back!
It has been confirmed that the film will be getting a sequel with Hilary Swank reprising her role as Holly Kennedy.
The owners of Alcon Entertainment, Andrew Kosove, and Broderick Johnson have confirmed that they acquired the rights to the sequel to P.S I Love You, entitled Postscript.
The films are based on novels by Cecelia Ahern. The first film was based on the 2003 novel of the same name while the second film will be the film adaptation of the 2019 novel Postscript.
Ahern published the novel with Harper Collins last September in the UK and in the US it was published on the 11th of February, 2020 with Grand Central Publishing, right in time for Valentine's Day.
The film will be co-produced and co-financed by The Blind Side production company along with Black Label Media.
The story of the new book follows Holly, seven years after Gerry's death and six years after she read the last letter. Holly moves on with her life with her new love but her past grief comes back when her sister asks her to tell the story of the letters on her podcast. After the episode airs, people with terminal illnesses contact Holly asking her for help in writing similar letters to their loved ones.
At the moment, no casting news has been released but it is highly likely that Swank will reprise her role. Also, the possibility of Gerard Butler returning is there but let's not get our hopes up. Remember, he's dead. He may return in flashbacks though.
