Hugh Grant will star in ‘Bridget Jones 3’, says film boss

London: Although it was believed that Hugh Grant had dropped out from the third ‘Bridget Jones’ film, movie bosses have revealed that the actor will star in the flick. Tim Bevan, chairman for Working Title, the movie’s production company, confirmed that Grant was not leaving the project.

“Reports that Hugh Grant has exited Bridget Jones’s Baby are untrue,” a news channel has quoted Bevan as saying.

He admitted though that work on the script had delayed production.

“We are still working on the script, hence the delay to the start of production, but the film is going ahead as planned,” he said.

The third instalment will see Renee Zellweger reprise her role as the hapless singleton. The ‘Full Monty’s’ Peter Cattaneo will direct, while Helen Fielding is co-writing the screenplay with David Nicholls.
