A sequel to the Christmas rom-com The Holiday is in the works and Kate Winslet has signed up.
A sequel to The Holiday is apparently in the works – and Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, and the rest of the original cast have reportedly already signed up.
The festive classic The Holiday, released in 2006, stars Diaz and Winslet alongside Jack Black and Jude Law.
The Holiday sees two women swap homes during the festive period – with Iris staying in Amanda’s fancy Los Angeles pad while Amanda retreats to Iris’ country escape.
Both are looking for a change of pace to their lives after suffering bad breakups, but end up finding themselves falling in love with each other’s worlds.
Amanda falls for Iris’ brother Graham and Iris finds love with Amanda’s colleague, Miles.
But fans are still wondering what became of Amanda (Cameron) and Graham (Jude) and Iris (Kate) and Miles (Jack) all these years later.

Well, they may not need to wonder for much longer.
According to an insider, the original cast of the film is going to reunite for the sequel.
The source said that Cameron, 50, Kate, 47, Jude, 49, and Jack, 53, have all reportedly signed up to start filming the hit film’s predecessor in 2023.
They told the Sun: “The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the U.K. and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board.
“It’s one of the most successful movies of its kind and still enjoyed every year by millions of fans around the world – it makes perfect sense to revisit those characters and find out what became of their lives after they hooked up.
“It’ll be funny, poignant, and heartwarming – just what everyone wants for Christmas.”
