It's been reported that a third "Bridget Jones" film called "Bridget Jones's Baby" is in the works, and Colin Firth tells CNN "there's every intention to get that done."
And a good thing, too, as it sounds like Firth and his "Jones" co-star Hugh Grant didn't get to spend nearly enough time together.
"It'll be nice [to be reunited]," Firth, 51, said of working with the cast again Tuesday. "It would be like one of those rather tempestuous '70s pop bands trying to get together in a way. We always had a good time."
Firth says he and Grant "go back quite a long way, but we very rarely ever worked together, except to pull each other's hair. Both of those films we had very little screen time together which we share. It'll be like a family reunion. I'm looking forward to it."
In the meantime, the Oscar winning actor is starring in this weekend's release, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," along with Gary Oldman, who plays a Cold War spy who has to come out of retirement to track down a Soviet agent.
There's been a healthy amount of Oscar buzz surrounding Oldman's portrayal, and Firth thinks at the very least, Oldman should get a nod.
"He's been doing virtuoso work for decades now. He's the actor every actor in my generation envied and admired and looked to as the person who not only had versatility but he inhabited completely," Firth said. "It's one thing to be dynamic and versatile, but it's another to really make all those roles authentic. There seems to be no limit to his talent...It's the most beautifully quiet and internalized performance."
You made some first rate points there. I looked on the internet for the problem and found most individuals will associate with with your website.
Good day I am so grateful I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I was looking on Askjeeve for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a tremendous post and a all round interesting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to browse it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the superb work.
So Zellweger has to start scarfing down Krispy Kreme donuts by the dozen and practice her fake English accent again? Sweet. I hope they have more shots of her fine fat a&& like they did in the first two movies.
Looking forward to this film very much.
He's so yummy! But, I must say, my favorite 'Mr. Darcy' part he played is in the wonderful BBC 'Pride & Prejudice' series. Just sayin.
oh, and p.s. I hated the 2nd Bridget Jones movie. Hope #3s better than that.
I agree with you on Pride and Prejudice for sure. I actually own it and watched it the other night. Mrs. Bennett drive me nuts though! :)
there will never be a better Mr. Darcy. i could listen to that man just talk all day!
Firth is an excellent actor, but I'd love it if he went against type and played a shotgun wielding maniac. I love when actors do things they've never done before.
Colin has said that he would love to play something other than comedy, perhaps an action film but they have only let him do one to date.
As for BJD, I am really hoping they get this done although according to the column of the writer, Bridget and Mark Darcy get divorced in this one and she goes back with Hugh Grant. However, just because she planned it that way I hope it doesn't go that way. Love Hugh Grant, but love Colin Firth more, LOL. Bridget belongs with Darcy even though most tarts seem to like the bad boys.
a tx sheriff. hi charles

Its great to know about the third movie. Bridget Jones Trilogy :)
It will be lovely to see the wonderful cast together again . I am sure it will be a great success at the box office like the first movie, hope it will do more than the first one. Loved Renee, Colin n Hugh. Excellent Work.
PS: I am a huge Colin Firth fan and am eagerly waiting to catch glimpse of Mark Darcy again on silver screen.
Colin Firth is fabulous n brilliant and he just rocks. Adore him.
Is Bridget Jones' baby what she ate that made her so fat?
Lmao.. Rachel is not me. I have no idea who she/he is. You guys are funny thou. I guess the blogs went back to the rightful trolls. Have fun.
Hopefully, Bridget 3 will return to the same tone as Bridget Jones' Diary and actually be funny - unlike film #2.
