A third Bridget Jones film is on the way to cinemas after producers promised Renée Zellweger she would not have to pile on the pounds to play the hapless singleton.Zellweger is said to have been unhappy at the amount of weight she had to gain for previous instalments Bridget Jones's Diary, and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, both of which also starred Hugh Grant and newly crowned best actor Oscar-winner Colin Firth. The new film would sidestep the issue by introducing a proud, svelte Bridget in the opening scenes.
A source told the tabloid: "Renée 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 newspaper reports that the plot for the third film could hinge on a pregnancy love triangle, with Bridget unaware which of her diametrically opposed rival suitors is the father.
Both Grant and Firth are said to be keen to reprise their roles. Firth told the BBC last month: "I don't really want to be part of a perpetual franchise but we're all getting so old! I think the idea of Mark and Daniel and Bridget in advanced stages of deterioration could be quite fun. We're making a comedy after all."
