Bridget Jones' Baby, the follow-up to Bridget Jones's Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, won't be hitting theaters anytime soon, according to actor Colin Firth. Here's what he had to say, revealing the sequel isn't completely dead, but it is still a long ways off.

"Unfortunately, it might be a bit of a long wait. I wouldn't say that it's completely dead in the water, but the way it's going you might be seeing Bridget Jones' granddaughter's story being told by the time we get there. ... There is a joy of doing those movies that keeps hope alive. And the story is going in an interesting direction. I just wouldn't say that the movie is imminent."

The project was first announced back in 2011, when Working Title Films gave the green light for production to move ahead. We haven't heard much regarding the project since November 2011, when The Full Monty director Peter Cattaneo signed on. Renée Zellweger is returning as the title character, alongside Colin Firth as Mark Darcy, and Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver.
