Even with the much anticipated release of the new book by Helen Fielding, it looks like were in for a long wait when it comes to a new Bridget Jones movie. The new book in the Bridget Jones saga is being written as we speak, and Colin Firth has been warning the fans that it could be awhile before a film in produced.
The production company Working Title Films said back in December that it was unclear whether or not a film will be made. This is what Colin Firth (who plays Marc Darcy in the movies) had to say about it when he spoke the Chicago Sun Times: “Unfortunately, it might be a long wait. I wouldn’t say it’s completely dead in the water, but you might see Bridget Jones granddaughters story being told by the time we get there.” The Oscar winner also added: “There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps the hope alive, and the story is going in an interesting direction. I wouldn’t say that the movie is imminent.”
Helen Fielding’s new book in the Bridget Jones series is expected to be released later this year. The last film, The Edge Of Reason came out back in 2004.
