LATEST: The sequel to smash hit Bridget Jones's Diary has hit yet another stumbling block - this time over who will direct it.
Renee, who will reportedly bag $16 million (GBP10.1 million) plus ten per cent of profits for reprising the role in THE EDGE OF REASON - is pressing producers to drop Kidron for Cole.
However, those close to Cole suggest he'd be reluctant to take on somebody else's project after the, expected, success of Calendar Girls - which is due out in September (03).
Britain's DAILY MAIL claim film bosses are currently trying to persuade Zellweger to let them stick with Kidron - whose previous hits include TO WONG FOO, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING? Julie Newmar.23/05/2003 13:49
