In the late ’80s, Richard began writing feature films.
His first movie was the 1989 romantic comedy movie The Tall Guy, starring Jeff Goldblum and Emma Thompson.
A few years later, in 1994, Richard released his breakthrough rom-com, Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Produced on a limited budget, the film starred Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell and became the top-grossing British film in history at that time.
In 1999, Richard wrote another rom-com starring Hugh Grant, as well as cinematic star Julia Roberts: Notting Hill.
This classic film broke the record set by Four Weddings and a Funeral to become the top-grossing British film.
After Notting Hill came Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually, and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.
