Fans of the “Bridget Jones” series should be prepared for a very long wait for part three. After being confirmed in 2011, not a lot has been said about the movie. In early 2012 it was reported that the script was undergoing changes with hopes to start before the end of the year.
Well, 2012 ended and the movie never went into production. When asked by the Chicago Sun-Times about the status of the movie April 23, star Colin Firth doesn’t make it sound like it’s going to happen anytime soon. “Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait,” he says. “I wouldn’t say it’s completely dead in the water,” he adds, “but the way it’s going you might be seeing Bridget Jones’ granddaughter’s story being told by the time we get there.”
Based on a book of the same name, 2001’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary” grossed $281 million worldwide, with the 2004 sequel, “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,” making $262 million. The three main actors from both, Firth, Renee Zellweger and Hugh Grant, are all on-board for the third movie when it finally happens.
