  • The actor has revealed he can’t wait to be reunited with the rest of the cast

    We were beside ourselves with excitement when film bosses confirmed everyone’s favourite singleton Bridget Jones was set to return to screens. And it seems we weren’t the only ones.

    Colin Firth has spoken of his excitement at reprising his famous role as Mark Darcy, revealing he can’t wait to be reunited with the rest of the cast.


    ‘It’ll be nice [to be reunited],’ the actor told news channel CNN.

    ‘It would be like one of those rather tempestuous ’70s pop bands trying to get together in a way,’ he joked. ‘We always had a good time.’

    Earlier this month it was revealed film bosses are in talks to hire Full Monty director Peter Cattaneo for the movie – reportedly to be named Bridget Jones’s Baby – and are planning to start work on filming as early as the beginning of next year.

    It’s thought Bridesmaids director Paul Feig had originally been signed up for the role.

    But after several drafts of the initial script, it seems film bosses decided a British director would be better suited to the job, and tracked down director of The Full Monty, Peter Cattaneo.

    Now it’s reportedly full steam ahead for the movie, with filming set to start in January 2012.
