“Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig may helm a “Bridget Jones” sequel


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Thanks to the success of “Bridesmaids,” which has grossed a whopping $154.9M to date, director Paul Feig pretty much could pick his dream project as his next gig.

Instead, he’s thinking of helming a third “Bridget Jones” film.

The Daily Mail, in a story that also notes Naomie Harris is contemplating the role of Moneypenny in the next James Bond film, reports that Feig is in “the middle of very complex negotiations” that would have him helming the next “Jones” story, even though there is no novel by Helen Fielding on which to work and the franchise’s three leads – Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Renee Zellweger – are not on the hook for the production. The story, if it happens, would follow Bridget on her quest to get pregnant.

But does anyone need another “Bridget Jones” film? And do we really want Feig, fresh off such a funny film, to apply his talents to the third installment of ANY franchise, let alone the stale “Bridget Jones” series? At least we are very early in the planning stages, and a lot can happen that would set this project back into limbo where it belongs.
