Richard Curtis is back in cinemas, having penned the script for Beatles romcom Yesterday, but one of his most memorable works is getting a second outing on the small screen - and viewers have got a look at a trailer.

Four Weddings and a Funeral, which earned Curtis an Oscar nomination back in 1994, is getting a limited series reimagining over at Hulu, with Mindy Kaling on writing duties.

A trailer for the new take on the story has arrived online, with Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel in the lead role.

Emmanuel plays Maya who, along with her three best friends, is on the hunt for love.

She meets attractive stranger Kash (Nikesh Patel) at an airport, but soon learns that he is dating her pal Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse).

Though the series shares a title and much of its DNA with the original romcom, Kaling has been clear that she is exploring an entirely different story.

“I wanted to take the themes and the essence of the movie and apply it through my eyes of what I would like to see that I haven’t seen yet,” she told EW.

Andie MacDowell, who starred alongside Hugh Grant in the original film, can be briefly glimpsed in the trailer for the new series.

Four Weddings and a Funeral was a box office hit in 1994, earning almost $250m (£198m) worldwide, which was a record for a British film at the time.

The original cast briefly reunited earlier this year for 25th anniversary short One Red Nose Day and a Wedding, produced for Comic Relief.
