Four Weddings And A Funeral cast invite viewers to ‘wedding of the year' in clip

The ensemble return in a short teaser video for a Red Nose Day special.

The cast of Four Weddings And A Funeral invite viewers to “the wedding of the year” in the first teaser for the Red Nose Day reboot.

Hugh Grant reprises the role of Charles, as the cast – including Rowan Atkinson as Father Gerald and Andie MacDowell as love interest Carrie – “request the pleasure” of the viewing public.

The 30-second video is the first of its kind promoting the short film sequel to the Richard Curtis romantic comedy.

One Red Nose Day And A Wedding will catch up with the film’s characters, directed by Mike Newell, who made the 1994 original.

In the clip the cast read out the names of their characters before adding there will be some “surprise guests”.

Grant, fresh from his acclaimed performance as Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal, then adds: “And please, try not to be late.”

Four Weddings And A Funeral followed Charles – played by a young Grant – searching for and eventually finding happiness.
