According to the IMDB, "Bridget Jones’s Diary 2" is back on track and looks set to go into production at the end of the Summer. According to the site, original stars Renee Zellweger, Colin Firth and Hugh Grant haven’t signed yet – and won’t – until they see the finished script.

Also, original director Sharon Maguire will not resume her duties, she has been replaced by "To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar" director Beeban Kidron. However, things are now improving for the project, screenwriter Adam Brooks has agreed to polish the script , Andrew Davis’ adaptation of Helen Fielding’s book The Edge Of Reason. A source says, "Renee had the title role and her name about the title with Bridget Jones’ Diary and she won her first Academy Award nomination for it. So the bar had been set high. You only want to do a second film if the bar is raised just as high, if not higher." An insider adds, "It’ll happen. Adam Brooks did a script called Wimbledon and everyone likes it, and he’ll do a great job on The Edge of Reason. This is a movie everyone wants to see and Renee knows it."
