Hugh Grant ‘Drops Out Of Bridget Jones 3'
The famous movie love triangle is set to lose one of its sides…
Hugh Grant has reportedly dropped out of the third Bridget Jones move, titled Bridget Jones's Baby.
Grant, who played Daniel Cleaver opposite Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in the 2001 original and its 2004 sequel has reportedly decided against starring in the next project.
The 54-year-old actor said, "I decided not to do it," during an interview with Free Radio, according to The Telegraph.
While Grant knocked the quality of the script, he complimented the story by author Helen Fielding.
"The book’s excellent, by the way, but the script is completely different — well, the script as I last saw it a few years ago,” he said.
However, the actor suggested that the film, which has been in development for years, is still likely to get made.
“I think they’re going to go ahead and do it without Daniel," he added.
Hugh is currently appearing alongside Marisa Tomei in new rom-com movie The Rewrite.
