Yes, you can see this (new) face in 2016, because Renee Zellweger is coming back as Bridget Jones next year!
Last time we saw Ol’ Bridge was in The Edge of Reason in 2004, but she’ll be back in Sept 2016 to tell a different story- not really of love and coupling, but of babymakin.’ Entertainment Weekly reports:
In Bridget Jonesâ€™sÂ Baby (out Sept. 16, 2016), Zellwegerâ€™s alter-egoÂ is now 43,Â still single,Â and in a bit of a pickle: sheâ€™s pregnant andÂ is not sure whoâ€™s the father. Is it her on-and-off again beau with the bad sweatersÂ or aÂ hot new billionaire named Mark Qwant (Patrick Dempsey) who is way more of a threat to Mark than Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) ever was?
â€œThis is part of the new challenge, discovering where she is now in her new life,â€ Zellweger tells EW. â€œBut as an actress, it feels like stepping back with an old friend.Â I love this character, I like that she tells stories about what itâ€™s like to be a woman and these really relatable situations at certain times in life. Itâ€™s so right to tell a story about Bridget in this stage of her life.â€
An old friend, indeed.Â And this one’s with Colin Firth and Patrick Dempsey, so new McDreamies included.
Will you see the new Bridget Jones?
