Elisabetta Hurley, who starred in Bedazzled insieme a Brendan Fraser terminato 20 anni fa, tells PEOPLE in a conversation surrounding her upcoming holiday rom-com Christmas in the Caribbean that she would be honored to work alongside Fraser once more.
Directed by the late Harold Ramis, Bedazzled came as a remake of a 1967 film of the same name. The movie features Fraser as a man who signs his soul over to the devil (Hurley) in exchange for seven wishes.
Of their time together on the 2000 commedia, Hurley says, “Brendan and I got on so fantastically when we shot Bedazzled and then didn’t speak. We didn’t speak at all until I got invited to this screening of The Whale. And I was so excited that I’d see Brendan again.”
