Universal Pictures UK tweeted this first picture of Bridget Jones on the set of Bridget Jones’s Baby. (Note: I’m really disappointed in them for not calling it Bridget Jonesing For A Baby.) The third Bridget Jones movie isn’t based on Mad About The Boy, the third book in Helen Fielding’s series. It’s based on columns written by Helen Fielding and in it, Bridget’s diary has been replaced with an iPad and Hugh Grant’s character has been replaced with a new character played by Patrick Dempsey. That’s great (or not) and everything, but it’s shitty that they replaced Renee Zellweger with Chelsea Handler. That’s who that is, right? No, that actually kind of looks like Bridget Jones and I see a little bit of her signature squint.
Thanks to that diabolical smirk and the way she’s clutching that iPad, it looks like a still from a horror movie. It looks more like a still from Rosemary’s Baby instead of Bridget Jones’s Baby. Please tell me that in the third movie, Bridget Jones is knocked up with the spawn of Lucifer.
