‘Bridget Jones 4': Renee Zellweger and SON set for new installment of hit romcom franchise
Renee Zellweger is rumored to make her big comeback on screens with ‘Bridget Jones’ 4. 'Bridget Jones's Diary', which was released back in 2001 globally, is one of the most iconic and cult romantic comedy films. It was followed by two sequels ‘Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,’ and ‘Bridget Jones Baby.’ Starring the stunning 53-year-old Oscar award-winning actress Zellweger in the lead role, this film franchise had been adapted from Helen Fielding’s novel of the same name which was a modern-day adaptation of the classic novel, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen.
According to a recent report by Daily Mail, it could be true that Zellweger is making her comeback to the franchise as the lovable and adorable bachelorette, but this time with her son in tow. ‘Bridget Jones’ 4 is the fourth instalment in the popular franchise.
According to The Sun, the fourth film is currently being worked upon by the producers in secret. This film will see Zellweger return with many of the original cast members to narrate the story of motherhood alongside her fast-growing son. In the last film, ‘Bridget Jones Baby,’ back in 2016, we all saw how her character had been trying to figure things out related to who could be the father of her baby. The film’s production schedule is about to commence later this year.
A source in his quote shared, “There have been few more successful or more popular rom-coms than Bridget Jones over the last couple of decades, but everyone thought this one was done for good. However the producers always knew there was a huge market for another sequel when the right story was available, and this feels like the right time to tell it.”
Opening up on the time-span and fans still wanting to see more of the story on the screens, the source also opined, “It will be seven or eight years since the last movie by the time this one hits the big screen, and fans will be desperate to find out what happened. It’s a British classic.”
