Just Say No

That’s my advice to Renee Zellweger. Curious as to why I’m telling Ms. Zellweger to say no? Rumour has it, and by rumour I mean intern fabricated story in a British tabloid, that Zellweger is thinking of reprising her role as Bridget Jones in a third film. The rumour isn’t surprising since Helen Fielding resumed her Bridget column for a brief time last year. The column is of course being turned into a book(that I will line up for like a 10 yr old does for Harry Potter) so a movie doesn’t seem to far behind. But the last movie was HORRIBLE. Not that the book was much inspiration but Bridget Jones is one of those stories that never should have had a sequel. The original film was pitch perfect as was Zellweger as Jones. The subsequent offering left a bad taste in my mouth.

But I’m a realist and looking at the Box Office numbers shows exactly why a studio would want Zellweger back. Edge of Reason cost $40 million to make. It grossed $40 million domestically(US) and was perceived as a bomb. HOWEVER the film grossed over $220 million, yes $220 million internationally. Add to that the home entertainment profits and the sequel was a cash cow for Universal. The studio would probably offer Zellweger at least $20 million to reprise the role, something I doubt she would turn down considering her career has been rather quiet lately.

Here’s hoping the rumour is just that, a rumour. The idea of seeing Bridget have a child with Daniel Cleaver as she does in the column makes me want to scream.
