Oh hurrah. Entertainment Weekly just confirmed today that a third installment of Bridget Jones’s Diary is a GO! Grab the nearest bottle of vodka and turn up the volume on Sad FM-Easy Listening For The Over-30, because Bridg and that man in the reindeer jumper (ah yes, and that Cleaver chap) are making a triumphant return to the big screen after 2004′s sequel, The Edge Of Reason.
Though we can’t say whether Renee Zellweger will pile on the pounds once more to play the formerly pathetic singleton, we can say that things are sure to get messy between Bridg, Mark and Daniel. Colin Firth told EW last year that the topic of babies runs rampant in the the third movie.
“I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can’t have children, I think that’s the way it goes on. So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant's character] for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she’s left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?”
Way to screw up a good thing with Mahk Dahcy and run back to scamp, Cleaver. Do you want to go back to a life of ciggies, wheat crunchies and Fatal Attraction on replay? Get it together and treat Mr. Darcy well.
