A third installment of the "Bridget Jones" films has been given a go-ahead by the production company, Working Title Films.
EW reported that Working Title Films will continue producing the films, as it was responsible for the previous two "Bridget Jones Diary" in 2001 and "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" in 2004.
The films are based on a Helen Fielding's novel and starred Renee Zellweger as Bridget. The first film was an international hit, taking in a reported $281 million with the second coming in at $262 million worldwide.
Rumor has been that the third film has been in the works since 2009, and no details are currently available. However, last year, actor Colin Firth who costarred with Zellweger as Mark Darcy, gave some hints as to a possible plot.
"I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can't have children, I think that's the way it goes on," Firth told Access Hollywood. "So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant's character] for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she's left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?"
Earlier this year, the London Evening Standard reported that Fielding had begun writing the third installment of the best-selling books. At the time, she said there had been discussions about the next film. "I will be working on both the book and the film but I don't know if they are the same thing yet. It's not been decided."
