Zellweger’s big Bridget Jones revelation
RENEE Zellweger has revealed she wants to reprise her role as comedic heroine Bridget Jones.
Asked if fans will see her back as the hapless TV executive, she said: "I really hope so. I do. I love her. She's so much fun."
The Down with Love star doesn't think the fact that Bridget's life has turned around, with her now married and a mother, will be any problem for viewers should there be another movie.
She told the Daily Record: "I really like the place she is at in her life, but it's Bridget and there's always going to be some drama. She's so perfectly imperfect."
Zellweger came out of a seven-year Hollywood hiatus to make the movie, but was apprehensive about returning to the franchise at first as she didn't want to taint the character.
She admitted previously: "I wanted it to matter and if you make a third film based on a character that is beloved to so many people, you want to be careful with it, and I felt a responsibility to (author) Helen Fielding.
"I wanted to know, in the process, that the story we told was based on something substantive. And that it was true to the tradition of this character and what she represents."
There is plenty of room for a fourth instalment, as at the end of Bridget Jones's Baby, Hugh Grant's sex-mad character Daniel Cleaver - who wasn't in the movie - was reported to have been found alive in a newspaper article after he was declared dead at the beginning.
However, getting the Love Actually star back on screen could prove difficult.
When quizzed on whether he'd be featuring in last year's movie, he said: "I decided not to do it. The book's excellent, by the way, but the script is completely different - well, the script as I last saw it a few years ago."
