Bridget Jones's Baby Synopsis

Oscar® winners Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth are joined by Patrick Dempsey for the next chapter of the world's favorite singleton in Bridget Jones's Baby. Directed by Sharon Maguire (Bridget Jones's Diary), the new film in the beloved comedy series based on creator Helen Fielding's heroine finds Bridget unexpectedly expecting.

After breaking up with Mark Darcy (Firth), Bridget Jones's (Zellweger) "happily ever after" hasn't quite gone according to plan. Fortysomething and single again, she decides to focus on her job as top news producer and surround herself with old friends and new. For once, Bridget has everything completely under control. What could possibly go wrong?

Then her love life takes a turn and Bridget meets a dashing American named Jack (Dempsey), the suitor who is everything Mr. Darcy is not. In an unlikely twist she finds herself pregnant, but with one hitch...she can only be fifty percent sure of the identity of her baby's father.

The much-anticipated third installment of the Bridget Jones franchise welcomes fellow Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson to the cast. Longtime collaborators Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films produce alongside Debra Hayward. Universal Pictures will distribute Bridget Jones's Baby in North America and select international territories.

Has too much time passed since the last Bridget Jones movie, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, opened in 2004? The movies based on Helen Fielding’s novels made money at the box office, though the $40 million domestic take of Edge of Reason was far less than the $71 million earned by the initial Bridget Jones movie in 2001.

Rumor has it, star Hugh Grant, who joins Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in returning for the third film, has been “especially vocal” in his issues with the script, but THR isn’t clear on whether that means he’s refusing to do the movie or that he’s just unhappy with the writing. Either way, the producers have reportedly decided to hit pause until they can get things worked out.

The third Bridget Jones movie may be close to having a director, and from the sound of it, this one will be British enough to handle the project. The Full Monty’s Peter Cattaneo is in talks to direct the film, which will reunite Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant for more zany adventures of the diary-keeping Bridget, based on Helen Fielding’s popular novels.

Bridesmaids' Paul Feig Won't Be Directing Bridget Jones 3: Is It For The Best? Bridesmaids' Paul Feig Won't Be Directing Bridget Jones 3: Is It For The Best?

What worked so well about Bridget Jones’ Diaries is, in a lot of ways, what worked so well for Bridesmaids. Both films featured female characters that were very funny and on some level, relatable to women, which is why Paul Feig looked like a good fit to direct the third installment of the Bridge Jones franchise, at least on paper. It doesn’t look like that’ll be happening, but that may be for the best.

Things are still very early-- there are no deals in place for Feig or any of the actors. Yes, they're hoping Renee Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth will all reprise their roles, though who knows how much more difficult that might be given that Firth is now a busy Oscar-winner and Zellweger is something equivalent to box office poison
