Bridget Jones Director Wrangle

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.
