Anne Hathaway Just Confirmed That There’s A Script For The Princess Diaries 3, And That She Wants To Make It Happen

The queen is coming!

While talking to Andy Cohen, Anne Hathaway confirmed that there is a script for The Princess Diaries 3, and that both she and Julie Andrews are on board.

Meg Cabot, author of the novels, confirmed the existence of the script back in 2017, but thanks to a fan on Watch What Happens Live, we now know that Anne, Julie and their producer are keen to make it happen, on one condition.

In response to the fan’s question about there being a script for the third movie, Anne said:

“I want to do it. Julie wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen. It’s just [that] we don’t want to unless it’s perfect because we love it just as much as you guys love it. It’s as important to us as it is to you, and we don’t want to deliver anything until it’s ready, but we’re working on it.”

This could be a fantastic opportunity to tap into the nostalgia that everyone who watched the Princess Diaries movies growing up has for the series, à la Mamma Mia 2 and Finding Dory.

The Trailer For The New Nancy Drew Movie Is Out And Everyone's Got Mixed Feelings About It

Right in the childhood.

Earlier this morning, Ellen Degeneres premiered the trailer for the upcoming Nancy Drew movie, Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, due to be released in US cinemas in March.

And if the replies to her tweet are anything to go by, people are not looking forward to its release at all.

The movie stars Sophia Lillis, who was previously in It and Sharp Objects, as Nancy Drew, alongside a cast of relatively new actors, plus Linda Lavin, whom you may recognise as Seth Cohen’s grandmother (or you may not. I don’t want to assume everyone has the memory for peripheral OC characters that I do).

The trailer looks fine. It doesn’t necessarily appeal to me, as an adult who’s never read any Nancy Drew books (I’m sorry, don’t hate me!), but I can see the appeal for younger moviegoers, and Sophia Lillis looks like a good fit for the role.

Evidently, a lot of Nancy Drew fans disagree, and are not looking forward to a modern version of the beloved character from the 1930s.

Other people are still looking forward to the new iteration of the classic series, but can’t help but notice differences between the Nancy they know and the one in the film.

Regardless of how Nancy has been adapted to interest modern audiences, there’s still a good chance the character can inspire young girls to be inquisitive and intelligent, so we’re here for it.

Turns Out There Was Real Heartbreak Behind Sarah And Karl’s Awkward Love Actually Scene

Love hurts.

It turns out that one of the most awkward scenes in Love Actually had real heartbreak behind it.

Laura Linney appeared on The Graham Norton Show this week, where she revealed that both she and her co-star, Rodrigo Santoro, had been dumped before filming.

Linney told Norton:

“We were both very broken hearted when we made that movie. He had just been dumped, I had just been dumped…”

Laura managed to look on the bright side though, telling Santoro, “all day long, we get to make each other feel better!”

She also told Norton that she thinks “there’s a sweetness to the scene” because they were both broken-hearted and could relate to each other.

She also said that despite Sarah’s lack of a happy ending, she didn’t think people should feel sorry for her.

“[People] feel very sorry for me. But they shouldn’t, they shouldn’t, because I really believe I got the best kiss in that movie. Hands down.”

Linney has been surprised by the movie’s success, thanks in no small part to its status as a Christmas essential, telling Norton:

“[The film] was so much bigger than I thought it would ever be.”

Who could resist a movie starring Bill Nighy as an ageing rockstar?
