'Bridget Jones' Dairy' franchise to be reinvented: Hugh Grant

London: Actor Hugh Grant says the status of the third ‘Bridget Jones’ movie is still in doubt as a number of screenplays have failed to hit the 'bull's eye'.

The actor showed off his nasty side by essaying Daniel Cleaver opposite Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in the first two films, which were both huge hits at the box office.

Though grapevine suggests all three stars are gearing up for a third installment, Grant reveals they are still to sign any contracts as the draft storylines have not been up to scratch.

'Bridget Jones' franchise to be reinvented

Hugh Grant wants the 'Bridget Jones' Diary' franchise to be significantly reinvented.

"I did like playing Daniel Cleaver, but there is no definite part three. None of the three of us have signed up yet. There's been a number of drafts that have had great things in them but haven't quite hit the bull's eye," Total Film magazine quoted Grant as saying.

"But they're working on it again now with yet another writer, as soon as they get to a good point we will do it, I'm sure. It's just that it does have to be significantly reinvented," he added.
