4 weddings and 1 funeral : a comedy cult will soon return to tv series
When you think “80s-90s” and “romantic comedy”, it is almost always the same movies that come in mind : Pretty Woman, When Harry met Sally or even sleepless in Seattle. But it still lacks a big jewel to this beautiful selection.
When 4 weddings and 1 funeral Mike Newell and released in 1994, this was a one-hit instant. Or even a mini-phenomenon. The romance a bit absurd between Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell on the background of the marriage and burial has moved the entire planet all as much as it has made laugh. And it is true that, almost 25 years later, when we look at the film again, one still understands why.
Weddings not really peaceful
A writing crafted, extraordinary actors, one that is much deeper than it seems and this sweet melancholy that is typical of romantic comedies in English, the film could not walk. In addition, its official song was the giga tube of Wet wet wet (“wet wet wet” in French, it is something other than a name such as Indochina, for example) : Love is all around.
If someone tells you that and that you probably have the impression of being by the fire with your grandfather, it is, of course, because the film will return, but in the form of a tv series. Commissioned and broadcast by Hulu, produced by Paramount and Universal, the series still has no release date and is expected to start filming in 2019.
Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell
For the occasion, a lot of things will change since this time, we will follow the peregrinations of 4 american friends who gather for a wedding in England. But when a twist occurs during the ceremony, this triggers a result of complications in their lives, based on romances, breakups, and probably of death, since otherwise it would not have the word “funeral” in the title.
And we learn at the same time via the website Deadline, thatAndie MacDowell, the film’s heroine, will be back in the series. Of course, it does not resume his iconic role as, once again, the series and the movie have nothing in common, but it should be the mother of one of the main characters.
It is therefore hoped that the result will be up to the expectations because we repeat : 4 weddings and 1 funeral, it is really too much.
