Renee Zellweger Talks the Possibility of Another ‘Bridget Jones’ Movie: “I Hope It Happens!”

Time to get out the wine and call the girls!

Just one year after Bridget Jones’s Baby was released in theaters, the hit franchise’s star, Renee Zellweger, revealed she’s ready to make another Bridget Jones movie!

“Selfishly, I hope [we do a fourth film]. Bridget is a lot of fun!” the 48-year-old actress told Us Weekly at the Greenwich International Film Festival in Connecticut on Thursday, June 1.

It has been 16 years since Renee first played the charmingly disastrous but totally relatable Bridget, and it seems she isn’t ready to let her go just yet — and we don’t blame her!

Unfortunately there’s no word on whether Colin Firth — aka the handsome but uptight Mr. Darcy — is up for flick No. 4, but last September he admitted it was “wonderful” to work with Renee again.

Collin confessed while shooting the third film, “[Seeing Renee] was when I knew, or started to become optimistic, that this was worth doing.” The 56-year old actor continued to say, “When I saw how alive she was in the role, I thought this may be in good shape.”

But the bigger question is, now that Daniel Cleaver (played by Hugh Grant) has been found alive, will he show up to put a wedge between Bridget and Mr. Darcy? We’ll just have to sit tight in our granny panties and wait!

Meanwhile, Renee also revealed she’s getting ready to work behind the camera. “I have something that I’m going to do this summer that I haven’t done before and so I’m looking forward to that,” she said.

Wait, is she trying her hand at directing? “Yeah, we’ll see,” she added. “We’ll see how that goes. We’ll see what happens!”

Hmm, maybe she’ll do more than star in the next Bridget Jones film…!
