Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth back for third “Bridget Jones”


By Adam Frazier
Hollywoodnews.com: One, Twice, Three Times a Lady.

We’re singing that because Working Title Films is moving ahead with a third installment in the Bridget Jones series, as confirmed by Entertainment Weekly.

Working Title Films is the same production company responsible for the initial 2001 movie (starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth) and its sequel, dubbed “The Edge of Reason” in 2004.

While details on the plot remain scarce, Firth gave EW’s Dave Karger some juicy details.

“I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can’t have children,” said Firth. “So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant’s character] for long enough to get pregnant.”

After knocking her up, Daniel dumps Bridget and leaves her stranded – and guess who’s left to pick up the pieces? Firth suggests that his character will ultimately rescue Jones from a woe-some life of needless drama.

I know, some of you out there are saying to yourselves, “Really? A third one?” and the answer is yes, of course they’re making a third one. The first film was an international hit, raking in $281 million worldwide. The second was crucified by critics (and for good reason!) but still managed to make $262 million at box offices. Why spend valuable time producing an original film when you can benefit from the success of an already established franchise?
