Feig Drops Out Of Third “Bridget Jones”

Though he developed the most recent draft of the script with the intention to direct, Paul Feig has withdrawn from the third “Bridget Jones” feature in development at Universal Pictures and Working Title Films says Deadline.

The decision for the “Bridesmaids” helmer to depart was said to be mutual, but the reason was not disclosed. Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are all expected to return.

Production is still slated to kick off in January.
