Everything we know about the ‘P.S. I Love You’ sequel

If you didn’t cry while watching P.S. I Love You, you have no soul and that’s a fact.

Everything we know about the ‘P.S. I Love You’ sequel

For the benign masochists among us, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a sequel to the tear-jerker in the works.

Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming film.

It’s based on the book Postscript

Cecelia Ahern, the author of the P.S. I Love You novel from which the film was based, penned a recently released sequel called Postscript. Alcon Entertainment produced the 2007 film and now it has acquired the film rights to Postscript.

It picks up seven years after Gerry’s death

Postscript picks up widow Holly Kennedy’s story seven years after the death of her husband Gerry, and six years after she reads the last letter left behind by him. Holly’s sister asks her to come on her podcast to tell the story of Gerry’s letters.

The podcast appearance inspires a support group to form called the P.S. I Love You Club, and they ask for Holly’s help writing their own messages to leave for loved ones when they’re gone.

Hilary Swank will reprise her role

According to Ahern, Hilary Swank is very excited to reprise her role as grieving wife Holly. Ahern told RTÉ that Swank was one of the first people to email her when she heard the news about the Postscript film.

“She was so excited, she wanted to read the book and she said ‘I would love to support you in any way, shape or form’,” Ahern said. “Then she read the book and she said ‘I want to make this movie’.”

A director and screenwriter are yet to be confirmed

When the film was announced, Ahern said “we don’t have a director or screenwriter or any of that” – all she could say was that “the movie’s happening” and she is “delighted”.

It can be viewed as a stand-alone film

Ahern says although Postscript is a sequel, people will be able to follow the storyline even if they haven’t seen the first film (or read the first book).

“A deeply emotional project for me, Postscript is the P.S. to my P.S. and while it is a sequel, it is also a story that stands alone about living a purposeful life in the face of illness, grief and loss,” she said.
