Calling All “Bridget Jones” Fans: Here Are 5 Things to Know About the New Movie
Mark Darcy is back...but is Daniel Cleaver?
You guys, it’s been 11 years since we last saw Bridget Jones (just as she is) on the big screen. But get excited: The release date for the third installment of the hit film series--called Bridget Jones’ Baby--has been officially set for September 2016.
We get it: That feels like a million years away. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a little pumped up in advance. Here’s what to know.
BRIDGET IS PREGNANT
OK, you probably surmised that from the title. Or photos of her cute baby bump. Or shots of her filming a christening scene on the streets of London.
MARK DARCY IS BACK
Despite a deadly plot twist in Helen Fielding’s third novel, Mad About the Boy, it’s been confirmed--Colin Firth will be back to play the requisite dreamboat role. Here’s why: Unlike the first two films, Baby is based on columns Fielding wrote eight years ago, not her recent book.
DANIEL CLEAVER IS NOT
Sad news for Hugh Grant fans: Bridget’s bad-boy love interest has decided not to reprise his comic-relief role. The reason? He said he wasn’t happy with the script. Well, a few drafts ago. Here's to hoping Bridge is as bumbling as ever.
PATRICK DEMPSEY HAS JOINED THE CAST
Yep, the man formerly known as McDreamy made the big reveal via Instagram. It looks like he may play a love interest for Bridget. Cue the “It’s Raining Men” montage.
