According to Entertainment Weekly, Working Title Films, the production company behind the first two movies in the series, is ready to move ahead with its third act. The company, who's based at Universal, had been considering a sequel since 2009.
The first two films, Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, both raked in over $200 million worldwide, making a third movie almost certain. Helen Fielding, the author behind the best-selling books, was reported to have started writing the third installment and committed to working on the film as well. In addition, there's no word yet as to whether or not Colin Firth and Hugh Grant will return to the cast as well.
