I'm especially excited because in addition to the extremely talented stars, the director is Richard Curtis who gave us everyone's favorite love story, Love Actually as well as Knotting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones Diary, and most recently About Time. The writer/director definitely knows how to pull on the old heartstrings. Yank producer Harvey Weinstein has picked up the rights so hopefully we'll be seeing it on Netflix or Amazon soon.
Ooof! I'm in a nostalgic mood, eh, what?!

James Corden who plays the baker in the upcoming Into the Woods is what The Telegraph are calling a 'chirpy narrator'.
No trailer or poster yet, I'll keep you updated. Oh and by the way, to all the critics asking Dame Judi Dench if she isn't too old at 79 to continue acting — Bloody hell, did they really? — I say 'Bugger off!'
Since we don't have a trailer, I think I'll take this opportunity to watch the trailer for Love Actually. Care to join me? I'll put the kettle on...
