Renée Zellweger and Hugh Grant to star in new ‘Bridget Jones’ movie

Renée Zellweger is set to reprise her beloved role as Bridget Jones in the upcoming fourth installment of the popular film franchise.

The two-time Oscar winner will star in “Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy,” according to a news release. The film is based on author Helen Fielding’s best-selling novel of the same name.

Hugh Grant, who starred as Daniel Cleaver in 2001’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary” and the 2004 sequel “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,” will return to the franchise to star alongside Zellweger in “Mad About the Boy.”

Grant did not appear in the franchise’s third installment, 2016’s “Bridget Jones’s Baby,” although his character was part of the film’s plot.

Also returning to the franchise is Emma Thompson – who appears as Dr. Rawlings in “Bridget Jones’s Baby” and is credited as a writer on the film – alongside franchise newcomer Chiwetel Ejiofor and “White Lotus” star Leo Woodall. Zellweger was nominated for a lead actor Oscar in 2002 for her performance in “Bridget Jones’s Diaries,” before won for best supporting actress in 2004 for “Cold Mountain” and in 2020 for lead actress for “Judy.”

The first film introduces us to Jones, a confused news assistant who keeps a confessional diary as she navigates the trials and tribulations of love, career and life in general.

Fielding’s novel “Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy” picks up 14 years after Jones meets Mark Darcy – played in the film by Academy Award winner Colin Firth – according to the book’s official synopsis.

“To Leslie” director Michael Morris is on board to direct the new film, with Fielding serving as an executive producer and Miramax co-financing the project.

“Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy” will be released in cinemas internationally and on Peacock in the US on February 14, 2025.
