Could Bridget Jones have a new romantic entanglement on the horizon? Deadline reports that Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey is in “final negotiations” to join the cast of Bridget Jones’s Baby, the third instalment in the hugely popular film series.
Renee Zellweger will be back as the title character and Colin Firth is also set to return as swoon-worthy love interest Mark Darcy.
Sharon Maguire, the director behind the first film, is back again and this time around, the story is thought to be based on columns written by Bridget Jones creator Helen Fielding.
However, one character audiences likely won’t be seeing again is Hugh Grant’s love-rat bad boy Daniel Cleaver, as the actor revealed in a radio interview last year that he had “decided not to do it” after concerns over the script.
