(Newser) – Good news for those of you who enjoy watching Renee Zellweger cavort around on-screen with a British accent: A third Bridget Jones movie is officially in the works, Entertainment Weekly confirms. But wait, you say, there are only two Bridget Jones books! Never fear: EW notes that author Helen Fielding confirmed earlier this year that she started working on a third; she's also working on the film as well, though she said she's not sure if they will follow the same storyline. No official word yet on the plot, although Colin Firth said last year it will involve Bridget's attempts to have a baby.
