Author Helen Fielding will publish a third Bridget Jones novel. The book is scheduled for release in fall 2013.
Shelf Life reports that fans can also look forward to a Bridget Jones musical and a third Bridget Jones film called Bridget Jones’s Baby. It has been confirmed that lead cast members Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth will return for this movie. Fielding will be involved with both adaptation projects.
The Guardian had a quote from Fielding about the new book: ”She’s still trying to give up [drinking and smoking], she’s still on a diet. She’s trying a bit harder, and is a bit more successful, but she’s never really going to change.”
