On Thursday, my colleague Mike Fleming weighed in on rumors being reported as fact elsewhere that said threequel Bridget Jones’s Baby was in trouble. Mike’s sources were adamant the movie would get made this year, denied that Hugh Grant had bailed and said that he, Colin Firth and Renee Zellweger are determined to see it through. Confirming Mike’s intel, Working Title’s Tim Bevan addressed the situation today with the following statement: “Reports that Hugh Grant has exited Bridget Jones’s Baby are untrue. We are still working on the script hence the delay to the start of production, but the film is going ahead as planned.”
