Bridget Jones’ Baby Locked For September 2016

13 October 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The cameras, they are a-rolling on romantic-comedy sequel Bridget Jones’ Baby, and with Working Title setting up shop in London, England at the beginning of the month, the studio has now slated the film for a nationwide release across the States on September 16, 2016.

Welcoming back both Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth – on board as a pregnant Bridget Jones and on-again, off-again love interest Mark Darcy – the long-awaited new chapter in the cult series is being directed by none other than Sharon Macguire, following her genre-defining work with the beloved 2001 original. Whether she can recapture the charm and blunt humor of Bridget Jones’ Diary is up for question, though Macguire will be working from a script she co-wrote with One Day scribe David Nicholls.

But the question remains: just how is the father of Bridget’s child? Presuming Maguire and Nicholls want to keep the story focused, one would assume that »

Bridget Jones’ Baby Begins Shooting As First Set Photos Surface

See Full Gallery Here

Naysayers be damned, Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth (no Hugh Grant, sadly) are reuniting for a third installment in the beloved romantic comedy series with Bridget Jones’ Baby, and a slew of set photos have surfaced for the film’s London set.

Coming by way of Working Title, the long-gestating threequel will once again be based on characters from Helen Fielding’s best-selling novel series, with Bridget Jones’ Baby welcoming Grey’s Anatomy crooner Patrick Dempsey into the romantic fray. Yes, love is in the air, and now that Zellweger’s titular, bumbling character is knocked up, we can only imagine the kind of shenanigans that Working Title has cooked up.

First Look: Renée Zellweger Replaces Bridget Jones' Diary in 'Bridget Jones' Baby'

5 October 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

More than a decade after Bridget Jones reached "the edge of reason," the fictional Londoner is back, this time with a red tablet instead of her trademark diary, in the first photo from Working Title's "Bridget Jones' Baby." First introduced in Helen Fielding's popular column in the British newspaper The Independent, and popularized on screen by Renée Zellweger in "Bridget Jones' Diary" (2001)—for which Zellweger earned an Oscar nomination—and "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" (2004), Jones was once as influential a symbol for urbane single women as the four friends of "Sex and the City." Working Title is hoping that a new generation of viewers will be just as smitten with Jones: the first two films in the franchise each grossed more than $250 million worldwide, from budgets that topped out at a mere $40 million. Few plot details have been made public, but "Baby" costars Colin Firth as Bridget's longtime love. »

First Look at Renee Zellweger in 'Bridget Jones' Baby'

2 October 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After years of delays, production is finally under way on Bridget Jones' Baby, the third film in Ren&#233e Zellweger's beloved film series that includes 2001's Bridget Jones's Diary and 2004's Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Colin Firth reprises his role as Mark Darcy from the first two movies, with Patrick Dempsey coming aboard to play a new character. Today we have the first photo of Ren&#233e Zellweger as the title character, seen clutching an iPad.

Hugh Grant is not returning as Daniel Cleaver from Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Way back in 2012, long before production actually got started, it was rumored that Hugh Grant was leaving the project, and it turns out that actually turned out to be true, three years later. While no details were given for Patrick Dempsey, it's possible that he will become a new romantic rival for the title character's affections. »

First Image From The New Bridget Jones

Shock! And also horror. Move over Mark DarcyBridget Jones has a new love. His name is Ian Pad (though he trendily goes by iPad), and he’s clearly the best thing in her life (and arms) right now. Yes, it’s the first picture of Renée Zellweger as Helen Fielding’s heroine from the third Jones outing, called – currently, at least – Bridget Jones’s Baby.The original Bridget’s director Sharon Maguire is back to make this one, from a script that has seen work by Fielding and Far From The Madding Crowd’s David Nicholls. Plot-wise, details are still locked in Bridget’s diary, but word is that the new movie will be based on Fielding’s columns and not her third book, Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy, which (spoiler) outraged fans by offing Mark Darcy and leaving Bridge to raise their kids alone.Instead, the »

Renée Zellweger updates her diary for an iPad in the first official picture from Bridget Jones's Baby

2 October 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Renée Zellweger is back in Bridget Jones's Baby - with a major technological upgrade.

It looks like Bridget has entered the 21st century by trading in her diary for an iPad in the sequel to 2004's The Edge of Reason.

The long-rumoured movie began filming earlier this year, with Grey's Anatomy hunk Patrick Dempsey joining Zellweger and company.

Bridget's long-suffering partner Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is still around as well - and perhaps about to be a father?

Helen Fielding called in a pair of heavy-hitters - David Nicholls (The 7.39) and Academy Award winner Emma Thompson - to adapt her Bridget Jones work for the screen once again.

Here's the First Look at Renee Zellweger in 'Bridget Jones's Baby'

2 October 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At long last, production has started on the oft-delayed threequel to "Bridget Jones's Diary," "Bridget Jones's Baby." Now, fans have their first image from the flick to decipher.

Of course, there really isn't too much to gather from the shot, which features titular star Renee Zellweger smiling and clutching an iPad. Might Bridge be eschewing her paper diary for an electronic format in the new film?

Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps for now, though Empire reports that this film won't follow the storyline of author Helen Fielding's third "Jones" book, "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy." Fans may remember that that 2013 tome famously and cruelly killed off the beloved Mark Darcy (played to perfection by Colin Firth in the flicks), leaving Bridget to raise their two children alone.

Instead, Empire says, "Bridget Jones's Baby" (the current working title, though that may change) will take inspiration from some of Fielding's columns, »

Patrick Dempsey begins work on the next Bridget Jones film: "Nice to be working in England"

25 September 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Time to get excited, Bridget Jones fans - Patrick Dempsey has posted a picture of himself on the set of upcoming movie Bridget Jones's Baby.

Production has begun on the sequel, which will see Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth return to the series.

The actor posted a picture to Facebook, including the caption: "Nice to be working in England. Renee and Colin are an absolute joy to work with!

"A good couple of days rehearsing at Pinewood Studios. I really like it here!"

Original Bridget Jones's Diary director Sharon Maguire will be behind the camera again, but Hugh Grant will not return to play Daniel Cleaver.

It is believed that the film is not directly based on Helen Fielding's third Bridget novel Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, published in 2013.

Bridget Jones's Diary was first published in 1996 and adapted into a feature film starring Zellweger, Grant and Colin Firth in 2001.

Renee Zellweger gains weight for Bridget Jones Baby

16 September 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Renee Zellweger has gained weight for 'Bridget Jones Baby'. The 46-year-old star of the movie franchise is reportedly on a high-calorie diet of chips and liquid shakes and has piled on the pounds in order to play the titular heroine once more. An insider told The Sun newspaper: ''She knows she can't play Bridget with her naturally skinny frame.'' Renee gained approximately two stone to play Bridget in the first two movies that were shot in 2001 and 2004. And filming for the third in the series - based on columns written by author Helen Fielding eight years ago - began in London last month. However, it will not follow the story of Helen's third novel 'Mad About the Boy'. Colin Firth has reprised his role as Mark Darcy, having previously said the script would need to be right in order for him to agree to appear. He shared: ''It would »

Long-Awaited Sequel Bridget Jones’ Diary 3 Is Official, Patrick Dempsey Enlisted

10 September 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal and Working Title have been ruminating over Bridget Jones’ Diary 3 for nigh on a decade at this point, with the last major false start occurring in 2011 when BridesmaidsPaul Feig was circling the long-gestating sequel.

Fast forward to 2015, however, and Deadline brings the first tangible sign that the threequel is moving forward, and it’s even snatched up its first major star in former Grey’s Anatomy crooner Patrick Dempsey. Has the hapless singleton finally found her McDreamy at last? You know it can’t be that simple.

Renée Zellweger is understood to be back on board for Bridget Jones’ Diary 3, alongside Colin Firth’s long-time love interest Mark Darcy. One former cast member who won’t be back for another bout of rom-com goodness, though, is Hugh Grant, who decided to forego another installment. And after The Edge of Reason, can you really blame him?

Nevertheless, Bridget Jones »

Is Bridget about to find her McDreamy? Patrick Dempsey is joining Bridget Jones's Baby

10 September 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Dempsey is in final talks to join romcom sequel Bridget Jones's Baby.

It's not clear what role Dempsey will play in the movie, but Renée Zellweger will return as Bridget and Colin Firth will be back as Mark Darcy, Deadline reports.

Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy - Casting Roxster

Original Bridget Jones's Diary director Sharon Maguire will be behind the camera again, but Hugh Grant will not return to play Daniel Cleaver.

It is believed that the film is not directly based on Helen Fielding's third Bridget novel Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, published in 2013.

In that book, Bridget had two children, while Darcy had passed away.

It is thought that the film will instead be based on Fielding's newspaper columns. The author has worked on drafts of the screenplay with One Day's David Nicholls.

Bridget Jones's Diary was first published in 1996 and adapted »

Patrick Dempsey joins cast of Bridget Jones 3

10 September 2015 1:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Actor Patrick Dempsey is in negotiations to join the cast of Bridget Jones’s Baby, the third film in the series, based on the book by Helen Fielding.

The film is in development over at Working Title Films with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner producing. Renee Zellweger will return for the sequel, as will Colin Firth, but it is thought that Hugh Grant will not come back for another adventure, which could explain Dempsey’s casting. Someone else that will come back however, is director Sharon Maguire, who directed the first film in the series. Maguire has adapted the novel, along with One Day writer David Nicholls.

No more news on the film other than that, but we’re expecting this one in cinemas sometime in 2016.

Bridget Jones 3 happening, Patrick Dempsey joining cast

9 September 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hugh Grant is out, Patrick Dempsey is in, as Bridget Jones 3 looks like it's finally happening...

A sequel that's been mooted for some time without seemingly getting closer to production is Bridget Jones 3. Paul Feig at one stage was linked with the movie, but that didn't come to pass.

However, there's now been progress, and it seems as though Bridget Jones's Baby is finally set to happen.

Renee Zellweger is to reprise the lead role once again, for the first time since 2003's piss-poor Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason. However, we still think the first Bridget Jones's Diary is something of a treat, and the movie earned Zellweger a Golden Globe nomination following its release in 2001.

Sharon Maguire, who directed the first film, has been lured back to helm the third. She's co-written the script with One Day's David Nicholls, based on the writing of Helen Fielding. »
