A Fourth ‘Bridget Jones’ Movie Is In The Works

The original star will reportedly return for a fourth installment in what seems to be a comeback for the iconic romantic comedy.

The Bridget Jones’s Diary saga is about to enter a brand-new chapter as we begin with the addition of the fourth chapter by Helen Fielding.

The Film ‘Bridget Jones 4’ Is Currently In The Works

There are reports that Renée Zellweger will be starring in the fourth installment of the popular series, which is based on a series of novels written by Helen Fielding.

As reported by the author, she is currently adapting her 2013 comedy novel ‘Mad About The Boy to the big screen for a third installment in the series. She hopes that all the pieces come together for a successful sequel.

She responded, “Yes, I’m working on it, and I really hope it will happen. Every film that gets made is a miracle — it’s really difficult to make films happen and to make them successful. But I’d love to see it on the screen.”

We last saw the self-deprecating laugh six years ago in ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby,’ but about a year later, with all the excitement of a baby’s arrival, she was back in the mid-50s with a bang.

By the movie’s end, Bridget had given birth to a son. She also married Colin Firth’s character, Mark Darcy. She has been romantically linked since she first saw him and his excellent Christmas jumper at the film’s beginning.

It Is Possible That Firth Will Not Be Returning To ‘Bridget Jones 4’

However, Firth may not return to Fielding’s ‘Bridget Jones 4’, which has yet to be announced. In the original novel, Bridget Darcy lives as a single parent looking to find love again. This is around the age of 50, four years after the tragic death of Mark Darcy. This is an event that takes place four years after Mark’s passing.

There has yet to be any confirmation whether any secondary cast members will return for ‘Bridget Jones 4’. However, it isn’t easy to imagine that the film would have been in development without the presence of Renée Zellweger.

According to an interview with Vanity Fair in 2021, the actress said she would love the chance to revisit the character one more time: “Man, I’d love the experience of revisiting her. I love her. I think she’s so much fun. She’s the most delightful. So, sure, if I got invited to that, that sounds fun.”

After Hugh Grant successfully returned to acting, and after he missed out on Bridget Jones’s Baby, he may return to the role of Daniel Cleaver. Unfortunately, this will be the movie that is likely to be the last one in the series.

Who Is Helen Fielding?

The author and screenwriter Helen Fielding is one of the most renowned contemporary English authors. In the wake of the success of Bridget Jones’ Diary, which she wrote, she gained massive popularity. The book she wrote also won her the British Book of the Year award for the most outstanding novel of the year.

During Wakefield Girls High School, she received most of her early education. She continued to major in English at St. Anne’s College in Oxford. Moreover, she met and became friends with notable characters, including Rowan Atkinson and Richard Curtis, at the 1978 Edinburgh Festival, where she performed in the Oxford Revue.

It’s been revealed that Helen Fielding will bring another “Bridget Jones” book to the big screen. “Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy,” Fielding’s 2013 novel, will be the basis of the next film. Is the movie series one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments.
