'Bridget Jones' & 'Human Centipede' To Go For Part Three -- Not Together, Unfortunately

In our darkest hour, Bridget Jones will return.

In our darkest hour, Bridget Jones will return.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Working Title, the company behind the first two films in the 'Bridget Jones' series, is interested in reviving the brand for another go-round. Helen Fielding, who wrote the two novels on which the movies are based, is working on a third, but there's been no announced connection between the coming tome and another film. While many of you barely remember the 'Bridget Jones' movies, they definitely seem to have made an impression, as the two pictures combined generated $554 million in theatrical grosses.

No word on whether they'll "reboot," but 42-year-old star Renée Zellweger certainly seems desperate for a hit, as she's got nothing on her slate. Rumblings of a third 'Bridget Jones' have been coming and going for awhile now, with "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig rumored to be taking the director's chair for a new film to coincide with a Lily Allen-led stage musical. Not sure how they're going to manage the aging original cast, either, as Hugh Grant has seen better days, and Oscar-winner Colin Firth may be suddenly unaffordable.

In similar threequel news, provocative director Tom Six, who has exactly one shock-horror film to his resume, can't stop talking about his 'Human Centipede' series. While "The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence" has already been banned by the BBFC, Six is actively discussing a third film. The guy must really like his kids' stuff -- he previously claimed the second movie made the first look like "My Little Pony, " and now he's claiming a mooted third film, a trilogy-closer, as making the second "look like a Disney film."

Speaking at the Empire Presents Big Screen event, Six said, “We’re going to shoot the third film entirely in America and it’s going to be my favorite...It’s going to upset a lot of people.” The guy knows what he's doing from a PR perspective, though he's nothing if not an opportunist, telling the audience he doubts Hollywood would remake the films, though he would absolutely be up for selling out and directing the redos. You never plan to fail, you just fail to plan. "The Human Centipede II: Full Sequence" is slated for an American release through IFC Midnight later this year.
