Paul Feig In Talks To Direct “Bridget Jones 3”

“Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig is “in the middle of very complex negotiations” about helming a third instalment of the “Bridget Jones” film comedy series reports The Daily Mail.

No deals with any of the stars have yet been sorted out and negotiations are tenuous because Feig and the cast (Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant) have other projects on top of the usual problems of schedules and money.

Feig, Working Title and Focus are “close to agreement on important matters relating to the film, but not close enough for anyone to sign on a dotted line.”

Author Helen Fielding has written a script for that features her heroine hoping to become pregnant. Firth has previously indicated that if the script makes sense he’d been interested in reprising his role he played in both the 2001 original and the 2004 sequel.
