Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth return in 'Bridget Jones's Baby'; another comedy-infused romantic drama set for release more than ten years since 'Bridget Jones's Diary' sequel 'The Edge of Reason'. This time she's a very professional woman in charge of her life - well, at least she thought she was.

Bridget Jones's BabyWhere will motherhood take Bridget Jones?

Directed by Sharon Maguire, 'Bridget Jones's Baby' is based not on the 2013 book by Helen Fielding entitled 'Mad About The Boy', but a series of story columns she wrote exploring the post 'Edge Of Reason' life of this regular London woman. Co-written by Fielding, David Nicholls and Emma Thompson, it will introduce a new star to the franchise: Patrick Dempsey.

In the first movie she was looking for love, torn between the affections of two men in her life. By the second film, Bridget Jones had made her decision and, after a bit of a rocky start, she winds up engaged to her beloved Mark Darcy (Firth). Indeed, 'happily ever after' isn't something that always happens in the real world. This relationship didn't quite turn out to be the fairytale that Bridget hoped for and, after breaking up with Mark, she seeks the comfort of a new man, an American named Jack Qwant (Dempsey).

She'd just about accepted that her long-term relationship had come to an end, and took pride in her blossoming career as a news producer. But then, disaster strikes. It turns out that she's pregnant and Dr. Rawling (Emma Thompson) insists that both men are equally as likely to be the father. Much to her surprise, both men are eager to step up to the plate and be a father, but Bridget isn't sure who it is she wants in her life. She loved Mark once, but that seems well over now. And as for Jack, she can't be entirely sure there's a future there either. 

The movie also sees the return of Jim Broadbent and Gemma Jones as Bridget's parents; Shirley Henderson, Sally Phillips and James Callis as her three best friends Jude, Shazza and Tom; and Celia Imrie as friend of the family Una Alconbury. Ed Sheeran is also rumoured to make a cameo. 

'Bridget Jones's Baby' is set for release in theatres on September 16th 2016.
