Why Third 'Bridget Jones' Film Is in Limbo UPDATED

UPDATE: Even though Helen Fielding's third book in the Bridget Jones trilogy, "Mad About the Boy," has seen huge first-day sales in the UK (and went on sale stateside October 15), neither Universal nor Working Title have snapped up film rights. (Working Title released the first "Bridget Jones" movie, and Universal the sequel, both worldwide hits.)
