'Four Weddings And A Funeral' Is Getting A Mindy Kaling Remake And We Don't Know What To Think

Stop all the clocks, Four Weddings And A Funeral is getting a TV reboot and our brains are exploding.

Obviously, as the bread-and-butter of most Brit's romantic enlightenment, films that star Hugh Grant mumbling, ' I…ugh…well… what I mean to say is.. uh .. well I love you,' are practically gospel to us.

How else do we learn that only Americans can be direct and that unrequited love is an English sport?

So, when we heard that the 1994 classic was being remade we were confused. One side of us made us want to stick our umbrella in the ground, throw our tea cups in the air, shout 'cor Blimey' and do other English things in anger.

But then the other side, the side that has heard that none other than comedic powerhouse Mindy Kaling is producing the for-TV reboot alongside original writer Richard Curtis, got a bit excited.

Curtis is the brain behind such British blockbusters as Notting Hill, Bridget Jones' Diary and Love Actually, proving his blood runs thick with awkwardly endearing romanticism.

Similarly Mindy Kaling was one of the comedic brains behind the American Office and her own show The Mindy Project.

The original Four Weddings was a box office hit, grossing about £188 million at the time. It starred Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell, which obviously made it superb. The new version is apparently set to be an anthology series that will follow the various storylines in each episode.

That means more time on Duckface, Matthew and Fiona. Hurrah!

The more we think about it, the more we're on board with the idea. In fact, this could be the perfect time to right the only wrong in the film - that Carrie and Charles end up together.

However, if they dare cut the 'Stop all the clocks' scene, we will hunt them down, and write an extremely strongly-worded letter.
