“P.S. I Love You” is finally getting a sequel. Alcon Entertainment has acquired film rights to “Postscript,” the follow-up novel from Cecelia Ahern. Alcon will co-finance and co-produce the movie with Black Label Media, the company’s co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson announced Tuesday.
Alcon produced the 2007 movie based on Ahern’s book “P.S. I Love You,” which starred Hilary Swank as the widow Holly Kennedy. The film earned $156 million at the worldwide box office. “Postscript” picks up Holly’s story seven years after her husband’s death, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “P.S. I Love You” letters on her podcast.
“We are overjoyed to reunite with our longtime partner and trusted friend Cecelia to tell the next chapter of this story onscreen. Moving, compelling, and emotional, ‘Postscript’ is moving from start to finish and infused with a sincerity that’s impossible to ignore,” Kosove and Johnson said in a statement.
The follow-up novel from author Cecelia Ahern was published in the UK this past September via HarperCollins and is releasing in the US on Tuesday via Grand Central Publishing.
