P.S. I Love You? Let me guess, the series with ‘The Internet’s Boyfriend’? Oh, Hell, No.
It’s the original movie that came in 2007. It’s based on a novel of the same name that came in 2004. Author Cecelia Ahern has written it. Ok, understood, but what’s the news?
So, it’s getting a sequel. Yes, you heard it right. The famous rom-com is now getting a sequel with the same star cast. Isn’t that exciting. It was a weepy movie. It was one of the purest love movies that justify ‘Love never dies.’
