Bridget Jones Third Film Stalled
Fans of the Bridget Jones movies may not be getting their wish for a third film in the series after all.
In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times on Sunday (April 28), actor Colin Firth said that plans have stalled for a follow up to the first two flicks, “Bridget Jones’s Diary” and “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.”
The hit series stars Firth, along with Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant, with the first having been released in 2001.
While there is still hope, the actor said, "Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait. I wouldn’t say that it’s completely dead in the water, but the way it’s going you might be seeing Bridget Jones’ granddaughter’s story being told by the time we get there. … There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps hope alive. And the story is going in an interesting direction. I just wouldn’t say that the movie is imminent."
