A 'P.S. I Love You' Sequel Is In The Works And We're Already Crying

Over a decade after the original film ripped our hearts out, a sequel could now be on its way.

The 2007 romantic "comedy" (because is it really a comedy when you spend half the film sobbing into a bucket of cheap wine?) starred Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler and is one of those iconic '00s devastating sob-fests.

Hilary Swank starred as Holly, a widow whose husband Gerry (Gerard Butler) dies of a brain tumour. On her 30th birthday, a cake arrives with a letter from Gerry -- the first in a series, each of which ends with "P.S. I love you".

According to Variety, Alcon Entertainment has acquired the film rights to the sequel novel, "Postscript" by Cecelia Ahern.

Rick Moranis starred in the 1989 original as a scientist who accidentally shrinks his children when they sneak into his lab.

"Postscript" was published last year and picks up seven years after Gerry's death, and six years after Holly read his final letter where he (SPOILERS FOR A 13-YEAR-OLD FILM) encourages her to move on with her life.

A group inspired by Gerry's letters, creatively calling themselves the 'PS I Love You Club', approach Holly and ask her for help -- which pulls her back into a world full of emotions she thought she had left behind.

As it's still early days, there's been no word on if Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler plan on signing back up to reprise their original roles.
