Screw method acting - girl wants to stay svelte!
According to reports, some serious headway is finally being made in getting a third Bridget Jones flick made. Renee Zellweger reportedly is finally getting into negotiations for the movie, now that it's been made clear that she won't have to gain weight for the role.
Producers have allegedly promised her that she won't have to put on a single pound to play Bridget as she had done for the two previous films. Having said that, Renee apparently "had no reservations about saying yes" to the project.
One down. So, how about Daniel Cleaver and Mr. Darcy?
We hear that Hugh Grant is also all lined up to reprise his role, as is Colin Firth. In fact, coming off his Oscar-winning role in The King's Speech, Colin told sources he was excited to step back into Bridget's world again. He explained:
"I think the idea of Mark and Daniel and Bridget in advanced stages of deterioration could be quite fun. We're making a comedy after all."
That you are, friend! Plus, a lot can happen in seven years!
But ugh!!! Let's just hope they found a better plot!
