P.S. I Love You Is Officially Getting A Sequel



Get ready for some ugly crying — P.S. I Love You is officially getting a sequel. Last year, Cecelia Ahern said that she was writing a follow-up to her 2004 novel of the same name, and now it’s been confirmed as a movie. 

Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank played havoc with our emotions in the original movie 13 years ago, and it looks like Swank is expected to be starring in the follow-up. However, Butler has not yet confirmed whether or not he’ll be involved.

Yesterday, Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, the co-founders and CEOs of Alcon Entertainment, confirmed that their company has acquired the film rights to Postscript – Ahern’s follow-up. 

While we might be more familiar with Richard LaGravenese’s 2007 movie, let’s not forget it all came from Ahern’s book. As the Irish writer’s first novel, P.S. I Love You rocketed up the book charts with its charming tale of love and loss.

For those who don’t know, P.S. I Love Youfocusses on a pair of arguing young lovers called Holly and Gerry. Tragedy strikes when Gerry passes away from a brain tumour and leaves Holly lost in the world.

Both the book and the movie unravel as Holly receives a series of letters Gerry wrote before his death, encouraging her to live her life again. The whole hook is that Gerry rounds off each of his inspirational letter with “P.S. I love you” — *sob*pass the tissues.

Posting on Twitter last year, Ahern announced that she’d already completed the sequel. She wrote: “I hope you’ll welcome back Holly… & Gerry,” Ahern seemingly confirms it will be a proper follow-up and bring back both the main characters. Jeez, how many letters did Gerry manage to write before he croaked?

We don’t know about you, but we’re incredibly excited to see what happens with this next instalment of such a heart-breaking story.
