Hugh Grant - Hugh Grant Hasn't Signed Up For Bridget Jones 3

Hugh Grant has not yet signed up for 'Bridget Jones 3'.

The British actor - who played lothario Daniel Clever in the first two romantic comedies - has seen a script for the project, but reveals neither he, nor Renee Zellweger or Colin Firth, have signed up for a third instalment.

He told Empire magazine: ''No one has signed on the dotted line. But they are working on our script. I have seen the script.''

Hugh has become well known for his portrayal of bumbling English characters in movies, but his favourite performance of his was in 'About A Boy' and 'Two Weeks Notice' with Sandra Bullock.

He added: ''I like 'About A Boy'. I don't think I am terrible in that.

''Some of them that you have hated are the ones I liked very much, films like 'Two Weeks Notice'. I loved making that film - loved Sandra Bullock. In fact, I think I am rather good in that film. But everyone is entitled to disagree. The fact is when they work, when they entertain, sometimes they might get a good review.

''More often in my case, they will do good box office and not get such good reviews.''

Hugh Grant isn't needed in this film. This last installment would probably be better with out him. We can live without another girly fight and it would be to painful to Mark Darcy for Bridget to cheat with Daniel Cleaver. Since Hugh Grant is the only one complaining let him go find another movie to do. He was right in Love Actually he looks more and more like his Aunt Mildred as her ages where Colin Firth and Renee are aging beautifully. Hang it up Hugh we are tired of hearing you complain like an old lady.
