Renée Zellweger Set to Return for New 'Bridget Jones' Movie.

Renée Zellweger is set to return to one of her most beloved roles in Universal Pictures’ and Working Title's "Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy".

The fourth installment in the series was announced, with Renée Zellweger reprising her iconic role and a few new characters entering the fray just as Bridget enters a new chapter in her life.

Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson are confirmed to return alongside franchise newcomers Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave," "Love, Actually") and Leo Woodall ("The White Lotus", "One Day").

Michael Morris is in the director's chair this time, with the story finding Bridget navigating motherhood and having to look for love all over again following a tragic death.

Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Jo Wallett will produce and Miramax is co-financing. The three prior films have raked in more than $760 million at the worldwide box office.

"Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy" will debut in cinemas internationally and on Peacock in the U.S. on Valentine’s Day 2025.
