After 15 years of waiting and writing in our diaries, we're finally getting another Bridget Jones novel! What can we expect from the third book when it hit shelves in November? In this POPSUGAR Rush, we tackle what's next for the endearing British heroine, plus we have the afternoon's biggest headlines — including where to find Kate Middleton next and which One Direction heartthrob Selena most wants to kiss!
In some ways, I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been a third Bridget Jones movie yet since Hollywood seems more keen on making remakes and sequels than producing original material. We're only now hearing news of another movie centered around that zany Bridget Jones, and this one probably won't even go into production until the end of next year.
The third, untitled movie will again star Renee Zellweger in the title role and unsurprisingly, after trying to untangle all the messes in her romantic life, this next story will probably focus on her desire to have a baby: "It will likely be based on the weekly columns author Helen Fielding wrote in 2005 for British newspaper the Independent in which Bridget, now in her 40s, attempts to have a baby before it's too late."
I still watch Bridget Jones's Diary from time to time (usually around the holidays!) but, to be completely honest, I truly hate the sequel, Bridget Jones — The Edge of Reason. Then again, sometimes the third movie is actually better than the second. I'm open to the idea. What do you think of a third Bridget Jones movie?
