A Third Bridget Jones Movie: Yay or Nay?

In some ways, I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been a third Bridget Jones movie yet since Hollywood seems more keen on making remakes and sequels than producing original material. We're only now hearing news of another movie centered around that zany Bridget Jones, and this one probably won't even go into production until the end of next year.

The third, untitled movie will again star Renee Zellweger in the title role and unsurprisingly, after trying to untangle all the messes in her romantic life, this next story will probably focus on her desire to have a baby: "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."

I still watch Bridget Jones's Diary from time to time (usually around the holidays!) but, to be completely honest, I truly hate the sequel, Bridget Jones — The Edge of Reason. Then again, sometimes the third movie is actually better than the second. I'm open to the idea. What do you think of a third Bridget Jones movie?

i liked mk's idea (from dlisted)... "they can just plop a blonde wig on Kirstie Alley and squirt lemon juice in her eyes. There's Bridget Jones!" hahahahaha

I love the books and really liked the movies, but there isn't a third book! I was hoping that Fielding would write a third book but she hasn't, so how can they just make a third movie??

The second movie was really awful- which was especially disappointing as I really loved the second book. I'd probably see a third movie if Colin Firth was involved, but I'm skeptical...

I only liked the first 1, they should stop.

I voted no because I think the second movie wrapped things up nicely. It would depend on how they do it because I actually liked the sequel...or at least more than I usually like sequels.

The second movie wasn't as good as the second book, but it was still entertaining. So I'm looking forward to it :). Just as long as she and Mark don't break up again.

Let Bridget Jones lie in peace with Mark Darcy, a third installment is totally unnecessary.

I think this would be good, but quite honestly I think a television series based on either of her other books "Cause Celeb" or "Olive Joules and the Overactive Imagination" would be a lot fresher and more fun.

I find it odd that they're making a movie without a third book, but if there's columns to go on, I guess that's okay. Then again, the plots of these movies are never anything like the books. I wonder if they'll contrive yet another way to keep Hugh Grant in the movies even though his character wasn't even in the second book.

The second one was already unnecessary, but since I love Colin Firth I watched it anyway...

Not necessary. Second movie was not good and having her gain all that weight again is not healthy. They need to find something interesting for her to do that's new and fresh and not the same ol same ol.

the second book is good. the movie strayed quite a bit from the book. but i enjoyed both.

We'll have to see. I read the first book right when it came out and loved it. I liked the first movie. I didn't read the second book, but I didn't like the second movie. I'd definitely watch a third movie, but I think it would be one I'd have to Netflix.
