We've been personally obsessed with hearing more about the reported "Bridget Jones's Diary" threequel, but we'll take Renee Zellweger updates where we can get them.
Lately, Variety says, the actress has been at work on fashioning her directorial debut, "4 1/2 Minutes." Zellweger's set to star as well as helm the comedy, which'll also star Johnny Knoxville.
The former "Jackass" performer will portray a "commitment-phobic, train-wreck of a comedian" whose life is a mess, Variety reports, and so he picks up work as a caretaker for the genius son of a single mother, played by Zellweger.
Written by "Warrior's" Anthony Tambakis, the story is based on the life of actual stand-up comic Dov Davidoff, and is set in the world of New York City's comedy scene.
