Renee Zellweger gets cosy with Leo Woodall on Bridget Jones set | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Bridget Jones star Renee Zellweger has been spotted back on set filming alongside One Day star Leo Woodall for the franchise’s fourth film. The new movie, which was announced last month, is titled Bridget Jones Mad About The Boy, and takes its title from the most recent Bridget Jones novel published in 2013. 

Fans have been guessing the plot of the film based on the Helen Fielding penned tome. In the book, Bridget is a widowed mother of two children in her 50s following the tragic death of Mark Darcy, who was portrayed by Colin Firth in the three earlier films.

Helen has said she decided to write Mark Darcy out of the story because she did not want it to revolve around Bridget being “a smug married”. While the character’s death likely rules out Colin appearing in the movie fan favourites Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson will be back alongside 55-year-old Renee.

New cast members also include 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor alongside Leo, who is rumoured to be playing Bridget’s much younger love interest, which the images released today seem to confrm as the pair appear flirty.

The film is set to be released on Valentine’s Day 2025 in the US. While a UK release date has not yet been announced it is expected to be around the same time.
