Bridget Jones Still Keeping Up with Her Journal of Sorts

Hasn't Bridget Jones figured out which British romantic comedy star she wants to marry by now? When I caught the last ten minutes of the second Bridget Jones on TBS last week, it really seemed like she was ending up with Colin Firth, but I guess there are still some things to work out because Variety says Renee Zellweger is plumping up to make the series a trilogy:

The untitled third "Bridget Jones" pic, which is still in its early stages and probably won't go into production until the end of next year, will see Zellweger reprise her role as a British publishing exec struggling to find love.

It will likely be based on the weekly columns author Helen Fielding wrote in 2005 for British newspaper the Independent in which Bridget, now in her 40s, attempts to have a baby before it's too late.

Ooooh, so she's with Colin Firth but now she needs to get him to fill her with baby before she's incapable? OK. So the movie is just about a couple middle-aged people having unprotected sex. Doesn't sound like that solid of an idea up front, but I suppose if it devolves into a Look Who's Talking with Hugh Grant as the voice of the baby, we could have a hit on our hands.
