Bridget Jones 3 Confirmed
A third installment to the Bridget Jones series has been confirmed – though Renee Zellweger is yet to agree to reprise the role.
Zellweger famously piled on two stone for the films that went before, and has expressed concern about padding out again.
She said: “Can I just tell you my body is whacked by the time we finish one of those. It doesn’t know what has happened because it thinks there’s supposed to be a baby and there’s no christening”
The third film will be based on author Helen Fielding’s columns (following the two novels that went before) in the Independent, which followed “singleton” Bridget’s quest for motherhood.
No writer or director has stepped forward for the project yet, and production is expected to start at the end of the year, so we’re not likely to see the movie until late 2011.
