Writer of the book series Helen Fielding is currently writing the third book in the series, but Firth says our beloved Bridget might be an old lady by the time a new film comes to fruition.
“Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait,” Firth, who plays Mark Darcy in the films, told The Chicago Sun Times. “I wouldn’t say that it’s completely dead in the water, but the way it’s going you might be seeing Bridget Jones’ granddaughter’s story being told by the time we get there.”
However, it seems Firth would love to reprise his role.
“There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps hope alive,” he said. “And the story is going in an interesting direction. I just wouldn’t say that the movie is imminent.”
The next book in the “Bridget Jones” series is expected to hit shelves later this year.
