Bridget Jones, Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver, welcome back!
After a seven-year dry spell, it looks like everyone’s favorite spanx-wearing, wine guzzling, and weight-obsessing gal is back! The third installment of “Bridget Jones’ Diary” has finally been given the green light to start production.
Renee Zellweger will reprise her role as the film’s heroine, though Bridget might want to hold off on that glass of boxed wine, as she’ll be expecting her first child in the film – but it won’t be with her prince charming, Mark Darcy, who is played by Oscar winner and swoon worthy actor Colin Firth.
Hugh Grant – Britain’s answer to eternal bachelor George Clooney – will star again as Bridget’s ex-boyfriend, Daniel Cleaver and if the script is anything like author Helen Fielding’s 2005 Bridget Jones columns, he’ll be Bridget’s baby daddy in the film.
Meanwhile, could playing a pregnant Bridget Jones coax Renee, who has been keeping a quiet profile as of late, in becoming pregnant in real life as well?
The 42-year-old actress, who broke up with actor Bradley Cooper earlier this year, is rumored to be dating John Stamos, Rebecca Romijn’s ex.
Are you excited about a third Bridget Jones movie? Do you think Bridg will dump her diary for a blog instead? Will she be sharing her juicy dating details on Facebook and Twitter? We can’t wait to find out!
