Great news, LADIES! Your best friend is coming back for more wonderful adventures! From Entertainment Weekly:
EW has confirmed exclusively that Working Title Films, the production company responsible for the first movie released in 2001 and the second one dubbed The Edge of Reason in 2004, is moving ahead with a third installment. Based at Universal, Working Title has been mulling a sequel since 2009.
No other details were available, but last year, Bridget costar Colin Firth, who plays lovable Mark Darcy, told EW’s Dave Karger some details about a possible plot. “I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can’t have children, I think that’s the way it goes on,” Firth told Karger, who was reporting for Access Hollywood. “So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [Hugh Grant’s character] for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she’s left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?”
Cool plot. I’m not sure what I like more about this love triangle. The fact that it’s toxic and destructive and sad to watch or the fact that it’s seemingly endless. LOLOLOL. Ladies, are all of you trapped in super depressing love triangles between sheepish, high-powered bureaucrats who love you unconditionally for no discernible reason and sly dog television executives who just want to tap that fat (literally) ass for no discernible reason? Is that why you love these movies so much? Because they are literally MIRRORS of real life? “She writes a diary about smoking cigarettes, and I write a Tumblr about smoking cigarettes.” That is the ladies talking. Anyway, the last movie, Bridget Jones Diary 2: The Edge of Reason accomplished two very important accomplishments: making a Thai women’s prison look FUN AND HILARIOUS, and having one of the greatest taglines ever. Can we top it? Let’s top it!
Bridget Jones Diary 3: The Edger of Reasoner
Bridget Jones Diary 3: Love Means Never Having To Say You’re Lorries
Bridget Jones Diary 3: Space Diet
Bridget Jones Diary 3: Eat The Throne
Bridget Jones Diary 3: Menage A Barf
Sorry. These aren’t very good. (Well, Space Diet is pretty good.) Usually my taglines are so great it’s very incredible. But today I’m having trouble because I’m a MAN and these movies are just so FEMININE and TRUE. Ladies, you better handle this one. Good luck! Don’t start crying uncontrollably for no discernible reason like I know that you do because these movies taught me that you do!
