Bridget Jones is back once more!

Source: People.com

Renee Zellweger is back for another Bridget Jones movie! Zellweger will be reprising the role of Bridget Jones making this the third film where she packs on the pounds and the quirky charm that defines Ms. Jones. The Bridget Jones novels are by author Helen Fielding. Zellweger first portrayed the role in 2001 in “Bridget Jones’s Diary” and in the 2004 sequel, “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason”. The third film will supposedly focus on Bridget wanting a baby according to People.

The first two movies were based on the two books that Fielding wrote, so it will be interesting to see how the third film will turn out. I read both Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason and I really enjoyed how the first book was adapted. I was entertained by the second film as well, but I found the book to be better. Both films were funny and enjoyable so hopefully all of the cast returns for the third installment.
