Confirmed, 'Bridget Jones 3' in Development

Renee Zellweger may have to gain some more weight to reprise the role as confirmation regarding the third Bridget Jones has been announced.

The bouncy girl with granny pants is back. The third movie based on the character created by Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones, is confirmed to be in development under Working Title Films.

Renee Zellweger will reprise the titular role who is now in her 40s. After her engagement to Mark in the second movie, Bridget is said struggling to have a baby before her biological clock ticks out. The story is likely derived from the short columns that Fielding wrote for British newspaper the Independent in 2005.

There is no official title or release date yet for Bridget Jones 3 because the production will not kick off until the end of next year. Variety reports that the project is still in "early stages".

Renee said back in 2007 that should she return for the third movie, then she will be ready to commit. "If it were to happen, then the least of my concerns would be putting the weight on again," she said. "I've said it before: I like it when I look a little more voluptuous."

The latest adventure of Bridget Jones was chronicled in a 2004 movie called "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason". Always searching for true love, Bridget said 'yes' when Mark asked her to marry him. The movie ended with Bridget getting the bouquet when her parents renewed their wedding vows.

    I adored the first one but did not enjoy the 2nd as much. Bridget wasn't quite herself- she wasn't as clumsy or vulgar or drunk. That is who Bridget is afterall. Remember, Mark Darcy loved her 'just the way she was'. So why change her? My main disappointment with #2 was that Mark Darcy did not come "down" to Bridget's level. In the end, Darcy should have (in his own way)swept Bridget off her feet like in #1. I do await a third, but hope they put everything they have into it. :) Love Bridet Jones

    I have both the first and second one. Sweetest, funniest romantic movie! Hope they keep the same people in the third one, as its never the same when some of these movies with sequels don't (like the second and third to "The Prince & Me", very disappointing that). I love collin firth, but not a hugh grant fan, he gets on my nerves. Can't wait til the third one comes out! I will be buying it for sure when it comes out on dvd. Don't need to go to the cinema to see it, as I have a great LCD tv hehe :-)

    when you make the third bridget jones movie, you have to make sure that both hugh grant and colin firth are both in it or it will not work without those two,even you have to offered more money.There is no movie without all three and make it the last one.End movie right so that everyone can have closer.

    I hoped not to see a third film, unfortunately it will happen. The second movie was bad at relatively novel. I wonder what they will invent for the third movie, because there is no novel Fielding.
