Yes, they’re making a third Bridget Jones film, and now I don’t think it will be worth it. I already read the synopsis for the third book in the series and it sounds depressing as all get out and now there isn’t going to be a Daniel.. all hope is lost.
“I decided not to do it,” Grant told Free Radio of the sequel. “But I think they’re going to go ahead and do it without Daniel. The book’s excellent, by the way, but the script is completely different — well, the script as I last saw it a few years ago.”
The potential film, which has yet to be picked up by a studio, seems less likely to happen these days. Back in 2012, Working Title and Universal were developing the film Bridget Jones’s Baby, based on a screenplay by Fielding, but not on her 2013 book. At the time the film was stalled, and star Colin Firth told the Chicago Sun-Times, “You might be seeing Bridget Jones’s granddaughter’s story being told by the time we get there.”
No thanks, guys. No thanks! They should really just shelve the idea and move on.
