Add director Jonathan Wright, who worked with both Kemp and Blue in previous Hallmark movies, and it promises to be one the most highly anticipated holiday movies of 2022.

This is what we know now.

What We Know About Hallmark’s Christmas In London

On Monday, Sleepy Kitty Paw tweeted, “Hallmark’s Christmas In London, starring Will Kemp and Reshma Shetty, filming now in England.” Written by Hallmark Hall of Fame Director, and Writer, Sir Ron Oliver, the film is finally being made.

However, he is not making it. But, he did go to Twitter to give director Jonathan Wright the thumbs up. “Just wrote the script, very happy Mr Wright is at the helm!”

Although Oliver and his intended star Ryan Paevey will not be working together on this movie, Kempers will be particularly thrilled. He has become a fan favorite.

Although Will Kemp did not share the name or network of his new project, he did share a photo of the cast members on his Instagram. He wrote, “My new playfriends!
#first  #film #gig #of #2022 🥳🎬 #actor #wall #end #week#one #grateful #everydayatworkisagoodday.” This is quite a large production. There are 20 people in the cast!

Ron Oliver’s Inspiration For Christmas In London

Director Ron Oliver wrote Christmas In London. Just a couple of weeks ago, he wrote on Instagram the movie inspiration for his Countdown To Christmas movie. “Sir Ronald’s latest Hallmark screenplay – an homage to Frank Capra’s “It Happened One Night” – is currently underway in London, England.”

According to IMDb, the 1934 movie It Happened One Night starred Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. “A renegade reporter trailing a young runaway heiress for a big story joins her on a bus heading from Florida to New York, and they end up stuck with each other when the bus leaves them behind at one of the stops.”

Could Will Kemp End Up In Two 2022 Hallmark Christmas Movies?

Hallmark’s Countdown To Christmas will include Will Kemp in Christmas In London. However, Kempers, the dedicated fan base that has been waiting for news on Christmas Waltz 2, are still holding out hope for a sequel. The first movie was the number one viewed Christmas movie in 2020. It would be pure Christmas magic if Kemp was in two 2022 Christmas movies, especially as he was not on a Hallmark movie in 2021.

Moreover, fans want to see Lacey Chabert and Will Kemp paired up again as Avery and Roman. Christmas Waltz ended with their big dance and a kiss. While this was an incredible ending, it was a bit of a cliffhanger. What is next for this unlikely pair? Christmas Waltz fans have been obsessed with asking the feel-good network to make a sequel.

In addition, last summer, director and writer, Michael Damian hinted on social media that there could be news on a sequel. However, there was no sequel made. Could there be a Christmas Waltz sequel in 2022? Could Will Kemp end up in two 2022 Christmas movies?

Hallmark’s Christmas In London will surely be part of the 2022 Countdown To Christmas. Kempers, are you excited about this new movie?
