The P.S. I Love You sequel
P.S. I Love You is reportedly getting a sequel movie and we're so excited.
It's said Alcon Entertainment have bought the film rights to the Cecilia Ahern sequel book.
The news comes nearly a year after author Cecilia Ahern announced the follow up Postscript.
Ahern tweeted at the time that she hopes, 'reading it will be as emotional for you,' as it was for her.
'I’ve written the sequel to PS I LOVE YOU - titled POSTSCRIPT.'

PS I Love You
PS I Love You came out 15 years ago, in April 2004.
It was Ahern's first novel and spent 19 weeks at no.1 in Ireland.
In 2007 director Richard LaGravenese turned the novel into a major motion picture.
It starred Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Lisa Kudrow, Harry Connick Jr. and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The story follows newly widowed Holly who tries to navigate life following her husband's death.
Gerry (complete with woeful Irish accent) has died of a brain tumor aged 35.
While her friends and family try everything they can to help, it's Gerry's letters that eventually get Holly through.
Variety reports the sequel movie picks up seven years after Gerry's death.
Holly's sister asks her to tell the story of the P.S. I Love You letters on her podcast.
A release date hasn't been announced.
