As much as fans may want a sequel to My Best Friend’s Wedding, so far there’s no indication that one is on the way. However, while we may never see a movie version of this, stars Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz and Rupert Everett have staged a reunion as part of a special rom-com issue of Entertainment Weekly. Check out the My Best Friend’s Wedding cast reunion photo below!

Released in 1997, the premise of My Best Friend’s Wedding is that, when they were kids, Julia’s Julianne Potter and Dermot’s Michael O’Neal made a deal with each other that if either of them is still single when they reach the ripe old age of 28, they’ll marry each other. Flash forward to four days before Julianne turns 28 and she’s told by Michael that he’s going to be marrying 20-year-old Kimberly (Cameron). It’s at this moment that Julianne comes to realize that she’s in love with him and grows determined to stop the wedding at all costs — though being asked to serve as Maid of Honor does tend to complicate things. Thrown into the mix is Rupert as George Downes, Julianne’s gay friend, who she convinces to pretend to be her fiancé to make Michael jealous.
As previously reported, both Dermot, 55, and Julia, 51, have expressed some interest in returning to those characters and picking up where they left off (naturally 20+ years on). Dermot, in particular, has noted how popular the film has become since its release, recognizing the meaning that it holds not only for fans but himself as well. “Obviously, it’s always been irresistible,” he said. “I think there’s only about four people on Earth that could make a movie like that, and they include Rupert, Cameron, Julia and me. So, let’s have at it.”
Fans of another rom-com at the time, 1994’s Four Weddings and a Funeral, are actually a little luckier in that they’ll be getting an online short film sequel that brings together that film’s cast, including Andie MacDowell, Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas.
