LATEST: The sequel to smash hit Bridget Jones's Diary has hit yet another
stumbling block - this time over who will direct it.
According to reports in the British press, superstar lead Renee Zellweger
wants to replace producer's favourite Beeban Kidron with Calendar Girls
filmmaker Nigel Cole.
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.
