Looking for yet another corny rom-com in your life? Well, have I got great news for you.

One of the best Christmas films of all time, The Holiday, reportedly has a sequel in the works, 17 years after the original hit the big screen.

Even better, all four leads Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black are rumoured to be returning.

If you haven't re-watched it yet this December, the iconic rom-com saw Kate Winslet as Iris, a heartbroken writer who is desperate to get away from her pathetic love live, and Cameron Diaz as Amanda, a Hollywood big shot who has just caught her partner cheating and has no clue how to be emotional.

When the two women find each other on a house-swap site, they decide to visit each other's homes for the Christmas holidays, in the hopes of getting away from it all - but both end up finding love along the way.

Iris finds it in movie composer Miles (Jack Black) who, like her, is learning how to stand up for himself and understand his worth when it comes to romance.

And Amanda accidentally finds herself falling in love with Iris's brother Graham (Jude Law), who drunkenly shows up on her doorstep one night.

In the end, both couples got their happily ever after, finding their gumption and becoming the leading ladies of their own lives.

But what happened after the credits rolled? Did both couples make it long-term? Did they move to LA or Surrey? Or are they doing long distance?

Well, rumour has it fans might find out soon enough, with reports rolling in that a sequel is on the way.

"The plan is to start filming next year", a source told The Sun.

"The main talent are all signed up.

"The plan is to start rolling on scenes next year, primarily in the UK and in Europe, but the main talent are all signed up and on board."

They continued: "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."

This supposed sequel isn't popping up anywhere until at least next Christmas, so best not to get too hyped just yet.

Although, the return of Mr Napkin Head is very hard not to get excited about.

Tyla has reached out to Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures for a comment.
