Disappointing Debuts From 'Sherlock,' 'Alvin' Sequels

18 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

While franchise titles did claim the top three spots at the box office this weekend, it wound up being a very mixed frame for sequels. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked both tallied solid grosses, though they were notably down from their predecessors. On the other hand, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol had a robust start in limited release. Even with all of these established brands entering the marketplace, the Top 12 wound up down roughly 13 percent from the same period last year. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows opened to an estimated $40.02 million, which is way down from the original Sherlock Holmes's $62.3 million over Christmas weekend in 2009. In what could be an even more concerning comparison, the movie wound up lower than Tron Legacy's $44 million start at the same time last year. That's shocking, considering Game of Shadows opened just two years »

The Full Monty Director In Talks For Bridget Jones 3

1 December 2011 8:07 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Peter Cattaneo is currently in negotiations to helm Bridget Jones’ Baby, in what will be Renee Zellweger’s third outing as the 30 something British heroine. If a deal is struck, The Full Monty director will replace BridesmaidsPaul Feig who vacated the project last month after working on a draft of the script.

Bridget Jones’ Baby will once again see Zellweger star opposite Oscar winner Colin Firth’s Mark D’arcy and Hugh Grant’s loveable rogue Daniel Cleaver. Helen Fielding’s now iconic British creation was first brought to the screen in 2001 by Sharon Maguire and a 2004 sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, which was directed by Beeban Kidron.

Bridget Jones' Baby Gets Director Peter Cattaneo

30 November 2011 3:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) has signed on to direct Bridget Jones' Baby for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films. We first reported on the project back in August, when Working Title gave the sequel a green light. The project was untitled at the time, but this new title seems to fall in line with statements made by Colin Firth in August.

"I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can't have children, I think that's the way it goes on. 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?"

This has not been confirmed as the actual plot of Bridget Jones' Baby at this time, though. Ren&#233e Zellweger, Colin Firth, and Hugh Grant, who all starred in Bridget Jones's Diary »

Untitled Bridget Jones Project Loses Director Paul Feig

4 October 2011 6:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig has bowed out of the Untitled Bridget Jones Project for Universal Pictures and Working Title Films. Paul Feig had developed the most recent draft of the script, with the intention to direct, although the studios and director agreed to part ways amicably.

Universal and Working Title are still planning on moving forward with this untitled sequel, and now it seems they are seeking a British director for the Untitled Bridget Jones Project. The producers are still hoping for a January production start, and it is believed a new director will be announced shortly.

We reported last month that Working Title Films greenlit the sequel. Ren&#233e Zellweger, Hugh Grant, and Colin Firth, who all starred in Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, are expected to return.

Paul Feig Departs Bridget Jones Sequel

4 October 2011 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Universal is on the lookout for a director for their upcoming untitled Bridget Jones sequel . Deadline reports that Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, who was working on developing the property, has stepped down as a helmer and Universal Studios is now on the search for a British talent to match the film's sensibilities. The original film, released in 2001, was based on the novel Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding. It starred Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth and earned an impressive $544.4 million worldwide. It was followed by a sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason in 2004. Earlier in the year, Fielding hinted that Bridget having a mid-thirties baby crisis would be a central plot in the novel, though she was uncertain at that time if the third novel »

Colin Firth ready for 'fraught family reunion' in Bridget Jones 3

15 September 2011 6:45 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Colin Firth has confirmed the script for Bridget Jones 3 has been written - and joked that filming will be like a "fraught family reunion".

The actor, who played Mark Darcy in Bridget Jones and its sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, said he was looking forward to getting back into the studio with Renee Zellweger, who plays Bridget, and Hugh Grant, who plays caddish Daniel Cleaver.

"It does become a bit of a family at the time, it'll be like one of those rather fraught family reunions at Christmas," he said.

He added: "There's a script. This character has obviously inhabited part of my life. I'm always interested to see where it's taken, and it does look as if it's going somewhere interesting."

The sequel is set to centre around Bridget and Mark trying for a baby and failing - only for Bridget to have a fling with Daniel, »

Update: The Inbetweeners Movie Sequel Not Going Ahead

"Honestly, we haven't even talked about it. It's our first day in today. I've been drunk for a month... Not sure who the 'insider' is."

Harrison continued the conversation, commenting: "I know nothing about a second Inbetweeners film. I wouldn't believe everything you read... except Star Wars novels... they really happened."

Morris then retorted: "You're not in it. we've filmed it. An 'insider' from 'the studio' told me."

The Inbetweeners Sequel Is Given the Go Ahead

5 September 2011 2:50 AM, PDT | LOVEFiLM | See recent LOVEFiLM news »

With The Inbetweeners Movie having made over £25m at the British box office, discussions for a sequel are already well under way.

The first film, which saw Neil, Simon, Will and Jay go to the Greek island Malia for a lad’s holiday exceeded expectations at the box office, prompting a potential follow-up.

An insider told The Daily Mirror: “Initially we said the characters and themes had reached a natural conclusion. But the success has been too big to ignore and it makes perfect sense to give the fans what they want.

“It would be much more viable than making an extra series because the characters have moved on, so that's what we're doing.”

The reunion is set to begin four years after the last film, where the boys meet up to celebrate Neil’s planned wedding with a stag do they will never forget.

Groovy baby! It's the pitter patter of Bridget Jones 3 and Austin Powers 4

Bridget Jones to return in a pregnancy love triangle while Austin Powers may swing back to the big screen, according to reports

A third Bridget Jones film is set to enter production, according to Entertainment Weekly. The site reports that Working Title Films, the British company which brought both 2001's Bridget Jones's Diary and 2004's Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason to the big screen is preparing a third instalment, rumours of which have been circulating since at least March 2009. The main obstacle in the past was reportedly star Renée Zellweger's unwillingness to pile on the pounds to reprise her role as the curvaceous eternal singleton, though the option of wheeling out a slimline Bridget for film No 3 had been mulled over.

The first Bridget Jones film was a critical and commercial success, taking $281m (£172m) around the world and breaking UK box office records. Sequel The Edge of »

Robert Robinson: tributes are paid to doyen of the quiz show

13 August 2011 4:13 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Liverpool-born, London-raised TV host and radio presenter whose voice defined an era has died at 83

Admiring colleagues and nostalgic fans have paid tribute to Robert Robinson, the veteran journalist and quiz show host, who died aged 83 on Friday. Robinson, the archetypal 1940s grammar school-boy-made-good, died at St Mary's hospital, Paddington, after a long illness.

For radio critic Elisabeth Mahoney, Robinson was "an unsung national treasure". When he stepped down from chairing Brain of Britain on Radio 4 a year ago, she argued in the Guardian that his trademark, old-fashioned use of the competitors' "honorifics and surnames" gave the show "an in-built quaintness that long outlived the era it might have belonged to".

For Private Eye, though, Robinson, who won the title of radio personality of the year in 1974 for introducing a combative interviewing style when he held a presenter's job on Today, was for ever "Smuggins": the man who gave »

Do We Need a Third 'Bridget Jones' Movie?

13 August 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Movie News, Hot Topic

It's time to start writing those petition letters to Universal, urging the studio: Please save us all, including moviegoers worldwide and Renée Zellweger's waistline, from a third 'Bridget Jones' movie.

You'd have thought, after the raspberries that greeted 2004's sequel 'Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,' that they'd leave well enough alone. But no, that film earned $262 million worldwide (nearly as much as the $281 million earned by the initial film, 2001's 'Bridget Jones's Diary'), so the studio has been plotting for a couple years ago to make a third installment. Now, according to Entertainment Weekly's Inside Movies blog, they're going ahead with it. Brace yourselves for another round of a zaftig Zellweger being adorably inept and utterly incapable of choosing the right man, and another slap fight between Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.

Third ‘Bridget Jones’ Movie Now Moving Ahead

12 August 2011 3:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Both Renee Zellweger's grocery store manager and nutritionist are having a very good day. They're each sure to make a ton of money now that the Oscar-winner is going to have gain, and subsequently lose, weight for a third film playing Bridget Jones. Entertainment Weekly broke the news that Working Title Pictures is moving ahead with a third film in the series about an adorable English woman who is unlucky in love, though there's no word if Paul Feig will actually direct [1] as previously rumored. The character, created by Helen Fielding, spawned two books and movies, both of which were international hits: Bridget Jones's Diary in 2001 and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason in 2004. Read more about what the story could be after the jump. According to the Entertainment Weekly [2] article, a sequel has been in the works in 2009 but is just now moving forward.

Another Bridget Jones? Really?

12 August 2011 1:23 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

It looks like it's going to happen. EW reported that a Bridget Jones 3 is in the works. Working Title Films has apparently been considering a third installment since 2009, and has finally decided to go ahead with the project. The London Evening Standard reported in March that author Helen Fielding had been working on the third novel and was in talks for a third movie. At the time she had said that she wasn't sure if the book and movie would be "the same thing." Well, they were barely the same thing for the second Bridget movie, so it seems that the third novel could easily be very different for the third movie.

It's not official, but Colin Firth revealed what the movie could be about in an interview last year.
