London: Renee Zellweger and her `Bridget Jones` co-stars Colin Firth and Hugh Grant may sign up for the third movie of the successful franchise.

According to reports, British production company Working Title have acquired the rights of the third installment of the `Bridget Jones Diary,` which author Helen Fielding has named ` Mad About the Boy,` for 3 million pounds, the Mirror reported.

In the new book, the protagonist Jones will be "immersed in texting and social media."

Last year it was revealed that a separate film, called ` Bridget Jones`s Baby,` was in the pipeline but Grant, who plays the role of Daniel Cleaver in the film, confessed that he had not been bowled over by the screenplay.
