Actor Renee Zellweger has reportedly agreed to star in the third installment of Bridget Jones Diary after producers promised she does not have to put on weight again. “Renee had no reservations about saying yes once she found out she wouldn’t have to get fat. She hated having to do that in the last two films,” the Sun quoted a source, as saying.
In an attempt to skirt around the issue, the movie will start with Bridget looking as smug as she gets on the scales after reaching her ideal weight. Meanwhile, Oscar winner Colin Firth is expected to return as her boyfriend Mark Darcy.
“Colin is really keen on a third film. He’s very excited about the idea of marriage and kids in the script,” the source added.
