Renee Zellweger has reportedly signed up to star in a third instalment of the Bridget Jones series.
The Sun is reporting that the star of the Bridget Jones films has agreed to reprise her role as long as she doesn't have to put on weight again.
Recent Oscar winner Colin Firth and Hugh Grant are also said to be signing up for the third instalment, which unlike the first two, will not be based on a book.
An insider told the newspaper:
"Colin is really keen on a third film. He thinks it will be a great flick to get his teeth into after all the success with The King's Speech, as it's so different.
"He's getting very excited about the idea of marriage and kids in the script, now all the characters are older."
It has been revealed that the film will be based around a pregnancy love triangle, with hapless singleton Bridget worrying about the identity of the father.
The first and second films, Bridget Jones' Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, were based on novels written by Helen Fielding.
Both films were extremely successful when released, grossing over £350million between them.
