Breaking News: Zellweger & Grant Back Together for 4th Epic ‘Bridget Jones’ Movie!

It’s official! The next installment of the popular “Bridget Jones’s Diary” film series has been greenlit, with stars Renée Zellweger and Hugh Grant confirmed to reprise their roles.

Universal Pictures, in collaboration with UK-based Working Title Films, will be responsible for bringing the fourth chapter of this comedy franchise to life. This series, much-loved by audiences worldwide, is based on the novels penned by Helen Fielding. This exciting development has been confirmed by several media outlets.

Zellweger, a two-time Academy Award winner, will once again portray the endearingly accident-prone lead character, while Grant is set to reprise his role as Bridget’s past employer and romantic interest, Daniel Cleaver.

The fourth installment of “Bridget Jones’s Diary” will also introduce new faces, including Chiwetel Ejiofor and Leo Woodall from “The White Lotus”. Notably, Emma Thompson will rejoin the comedic ensemble nearly eight years after her last appearance in 2016’s “Bridget Jones’s Baby.”

The directing duties for this installment will reportedly be handled by “To Leslie” director Michael Morris, while Fielding herself will be returning to pen the screenplay.

The first “Bridget Jones’s Diary” film made its debut back in 2001, featuring Zellweger as the perpetually single Bridget, torn between the affections of Grant’s Daniel Cleaver and his former best friend Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth.

The romantic entanglements continued in 2004’s “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason”, which saw Bridget embarking on a new relationship with Mark, only to be thrown off balance when Daniel reappears in her life.

In the latest film, Bridget, still portrayed by Zellweger, finds herself drawn to an American named Jack Qwant, played by Patrick Dempsey. This leads to another complex romantic scenario involving Jack, Mark, and the question of who is the father of Bridget’s baby. Fans will recall that the third film concluded with hints of a forthcoming sequel and the surprising return of Grant’s character Daniel, who was previously believed to have died in a plane crash.
