Richard Curtis - **Spoiler Alert** Richard Curtis Upset With Writer For Killing Off Darcy

Writer/director Richard Curtis has abandoned plans to create a third Bridget Jones's Diary movie because the woman behind the books that inspired the films has killed off the literary heroine's love interest.

Curtis, who adapted author Helen Fielding's books for Bridget Jones's Diary and its sequel Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, admits he's upset with the writer for not telling him about the demise of Mark Darcy, portrayed by Colin Firth in his films, in her latest book Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy.

He tells Wenn, "I feel very tricked and cheated because Helen has been my best friend since I was 19, but she loves my daughter more than me and my daughter is her goddaughter and she had many conversations with Scarlet about the fact that Mark was going to die and Scarlet has read chunks of the book and no one told me anything until Sunday.

"That's been all happening under my nose. I don't think there will be a third movie. Why would there without Colin?"
