Universal Pictures has announced the Bridget Jones’s Baby release date
Star Renée Zellweger also hit the streets recently for more filming, this time in the Borough Markets area of London for two scenes from different parts of the film. In one scene, Bridget Jones is looking trim and confident walking down the street, and in another she is full-on pregnant and pulling a Christmas tree by herself. Check out the Bridget Jones’s Baby set photos in the gallery below!
Working Title is producing the film, based on Helen Fielding’s bestselling book series, which sees Zellweger reprising the title role along with Colin Firth as love interest Mark Darcy and Patrick Dempsey taking on a new role in Jones’s life. Zellweger and Firth previously appeared in both of the preceding films, Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2001 and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason in 2003. Combined, the two films have grossed over $540 million at the global box office.
Sharon Maguire, who directed the original Bridget Jones’s Diary in 2001, returned to direct the feature film from a script she co-wrote with David Nicholls (One Day). Plot details are being kept under wraps, but as you have probably guessed, Bridget Jones will indeed have a baby in the third film of the series. The question remains, however, if the father of the child will be Firth’s Darcy, Dempsey’s new character, or perhaps a third party. Hugh Grant, who appeared in the previous two films, will not reprise his role for “Baby.”
