Earlier today, Working Title Films released the following statement regarding progress on Bridget Jones' Baby, which WAS just about go into production:
"Reports that Hugh Grant has exited Bridget Jones’s Baby are untrue. We are still working on the script hence the delay to the start of production, but the film is going ahead as planned."
The studio claims that the film will still shoot this year, but it could be much later in the year! A source close to the movie is saying that the cast/crew have been told that "the delay could stretch into the fall."
We just hope it gets made, sooner or later! We generally prefer original movies to sequels and threequels…but this is one we'd really like to see! Especially because the original cast will be back!
What do U think? Will the next Bridget Jones movie start production this year???

Lifetime is busy these days!
Television for women is adding another lady to their payroll. The network has bought Renée Zellweger's period drama series Cinnamon Girl, which Lifetime president Nancy Dubuc called “a game changer” for the cable network.
The provactive series is about four young girls who are living in Los Angeles in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and are surrounded by the El Lay musc and movie scenes of the time. Part of the series is semi-biographical as Zellweger’s real-life journey from small-town Texas to Hollywood stardom will be featured, combined with the lifestory of her co-creator Anthony Tambakis, who was big into the Laurel Canyon music scene.
Renée will act as a co-executive producer for the series as well as co-write the pilot with Tambakis. In a statement about the project, Renée said:
We'd be lying if we said we weren't really forward to this!
Now that the long-awaited second sequel to Bridget Jones's Diary is officially in the works, and Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth are confirmed, the latter actor, otherwise known as Mr. Darcy in the series, opened up about the project, and says that working on the flicks is like a "fraught family reunion!"
If you doesn't, well, ya'll might as well pack up an go home. There's nothing worse than reviving a trilogy with a recasted lead.
Last week, we mentioned that Bridget Jones 3 was pretty much a done deal. The production company behind the first two movies were on board and the flick already has a director in negotiations. However, the studio is still waiting on word from it's star, Renee Zellweger, on whether or not she is prepared to gain 30 pounds again for her iconic role.
The real question is, will people like it? Let's find out!
It has been CONFIRMED that a third Bridget Jones flick is in the works and close to getting into production. Working Title Films, the company behind the last two movies, is ready to forge ahead with the project, which must mean all the actors are in place and the script is up to their liking.
But just to refresh everyone's memory about the storyline, Colin Firth spilled some details awhile back that might not be to everyone's liking. Colin spilled:
Hmmm, here's an interesting piece of information just released.
Renee Zellweger and John Stamos were seen together at Disneyland on Monday!
Sources say they were having a "great time" while "laughing and dancing" together.
Uncle Jesse fans were super excited, running up to take pictures.
BUT GET THIS! Most of them didn't even recognize Renee, asking HER to take their pictures with Stamos.
So, okay, while we're happy if they're happy, we have to admit this seems pretty random.
Do U think they make a good couple?
