Hugh Grant can well imagine standing in front of the camera again with Julia Roberts in a second part of his hit film “Notting Hill”. But there is one condition that must be met.
Hugh Grant, 60, is best known for his romantic comedies, in which he always captured the heart of the main female character with his British little boy charm. One of his best-known roles is that of the London bookseller William Thacker, who falls in love with the Hollywood star Anna Scott, portrayed by Julia Roberts, 52, and who, after some turbulence, is able to win over his dream woman. A film that moves hearts around the world and literally cries out for a sequel. Grant is not averse, but he does make a condition.
Hugh Grant: “See me and Julia and the terrible divorce”
In one Interview via Twitter When asked what could induce him to film a romantic comedy again, the Briton explains about his new HBO miniseries “The Undoing”. “I would like to make a sequel to one of my own romantic comedies that shows what happened after these films ended,” explains the 60-year-old, adding the rather unromantic reasoning: “To prove the terrible lie they all have were that there was a happy ending. “
“Notting Hill” seems to be the favorite among his box office hits. “I see myself and Julia and the terrible divorce with really expensive lawyers, kids involved in a tug of war and tears. Forever psychologically scarred. I would love to do this film.”
Breakthrough with romantic comedies
Over the course of his decade-long career, the Golden Globe winner starred in several successful romantic comedies, including “Four Weddings and a Funeral” (1994), Bridget Jones “Chocolate For Breakfast” (2001) and the sequel, “Bridget Jones – On the Edge des Wahnsinns “(2004), or” Mitten ins Herz – Ein Song für dich “(2007).
Grant recently admitted that he enjoys playing bad guys for a change. This wish is fulfilled for him in the series “The Undoing”. In the HBO production, he plays alongside Nicole Kidman, 53, the character of Jonathan Sachs, who is accused of murder.
