Ever since Hallmark Hall of Fame director Ron Oliver penned Christmas In London, fans expected a repeat with General Hospital alum, Ryan Paevey.
However, the latest information could be news to Paevey Pack members. What do we know now?
What Is Happening With Hallmark’s Christmas In London?
Hallmark’s Christmas In London is about to start filming in London. Penned by director Ron Oliver, this was going to be the third project between the classic film director and Unleashing Mr. Darcy star, Ryan Paevey.
Back in March, Ron Oliver shared on Instagram, a photo of his computer screen, with a bit of a Christmas movie script. In addition, he tagged Ryan Paevey. Moreover, it takes place in London!
It said, “Sir Ronald apologizes for being incommunicado lately. When his muse strikes, it demands attention. #hallmarkchristmasmovies #inglesideinn #melvynspalmsprings #writersretreat #sirronaldoliver #sirryanpaevey #writersguildofamerica @ryanpaevey”
Everyone expected that Christmas in London would be part of the 2021 lineup. However, that did not happen. Ryan wound up in Coyote Christmas, while Oliver filmed Housewives Of The North Pole for Peacock.
However, in late December, Sleepy Kitty Paw wrote on Twitter, “Christmas In London, delayed Hallmark 2020 title, set to film in early 2022 in the UK with director Jonathan Wright. Ron Oliver had been linked to LONDON as recently as November, so not sure if it’s a different movie, or Oliver wrote but not directing.”
What is the story?
Will Ron Oliver And Ryan Peavey Work Together In London?
On Saturday, Ron Oliver posted on Instagram, “Sir Ronald’s latest Hallmark screenplay – an homage to Frank Capra’s “It Happened One Night” – is currently underway in London, England. #hallmarkchristmasmovies #hallmarkmovies #christmasinlondon #meandpaeveyaresittingthisoneout.”
The last hashtag, #meandpaeveyaresittingthisoneout says it all. Neither Ron Oliver nor Ryan Paevey is going to be part of the filming of Christmas In London.
A multitude of fans was upset. Many asked why Ryan and Ron were not part of this Countdown to Christmas movie.
One fan asked, “I don’t understand why Sir Ronald and Ryan Paevey aren’t working on this movie.”
Neither Ryan nor Ron have explained why they are not part of this movie, nor has Hallmark.
What Is Next For Ryan Paevey?
Right now, Ryan Paevey has been sharing two things on social media. The first is his incredible, hand-made jewelry. He finds unusual stones and creates pendants, rings, and other unisex jewelry.
The second is climbing. He has several videos of himself navigating a climbing wall. Could this be for a role? That, we do not know.
What we know is that he is not in any movie in January or Loveuary (February for those who are not comprehending the new Hallmark lingo). Hopefully, Ryan will be filming a new movie soon.
But, for now, he is scheduled to participate in the rescheduled RomaDrama in Palm Beach, Florida. The new date is June 24-26.
However, it is confirmed, he is not in Hallmark’s Christmas In London.
