Colin Firth, Hugh Grant: “Yes, our public demands some more fisticuffs!” Grant exclaimed for next Bridget Jones movie Posted on April 23, 2012 by By: Jocelyn Vena, with reporting by Josh Horowitz, MTV.com (MOVIE NIGHT)
The last time anyone heard about the third film in the “Bridget Jones” franchise, the script was still being reworked to suit lead actors Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
But fans have been getting antsy about the long-rumored sequel, with some wondering if the next chapter in bumbling Bridget’s story will ever be told. When MTV News caught up with Grant in New York City on Friday (April 20), he explained that the British love triangle will return to the big screen … eventually.
However, script problems continue to delay production. “I’ve seen some scripts,” Grant said. “They haven’t quite hit the nail yet, but they will. They’re working on it.”
Since the script is still in the writing stages, now might be the time to request that Bridget’s two leading men, Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy, get into one of their infamous brawls, battling it out for Bridget’s heart. “Yes, our public demands some more fisticuffs!” Grant exclaimed.
