Hugh Grant not yet signed up for ‘Bridget Jones 3’

Washington: Hugh Grant has revealed that none of the lead actors of ‘Bridget Jones’ have agreed, as yet, to do the third instalment of the film.

The British actor - who played lothario Daniel Clever in the first two romantic comedies - has seen a script for the project, but reveals neither he, nor Renee Zellweger or Colin Firth, have signed up for a third film.

“No one has signed on the dotted line. But they are working on our script. I have seen the script,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Empire magazine.

Grant has become well known for his portrayal of bumbling English characters in movies, but his favourite performance of his was in ‘About A Boy’ and ‘Two Weeks Notice’ with Sandra Bullock.

“I like ‘About A Boy’. I don’t think I am terrible in that,” he said.

“Some of them that you have hated are the ones I liked very much, films like ‘Two Weeks Notice’. I loved making that film - loved Sandra Bullock. In fact, I think I am rather good in that film.

“But everyone is entitled to disagree. The fact is when they work, when they entertain, sometimes they might get a good review.

“More often in my case, they will do good box office and not get such good reviews,” he added.
