While no additional details were immediately available, Colin Firth - who plays the lovably noble Mark Darcy in the hit movies -- spilled plot details to Access Hollywood guest correspondent Dave Karger last year.

"I can tell you that Bridget and Mark can't have children, I think that's the way it goes on," Colin said at the time. "So then she makes the huge mistake of going back to Daniel Cleaver [played by Hugh Grant] for long enough to get pregnant. And I think he dumps her, and she's left stranded, and guess who comes back to rescue her?"

Additionally, back in March, the London Evening Standard reported that Helen Fielding (author of the wildly popular "Bridget Jones" novels on which the films are based) had begun working on a third book.

"I will be working on both the book and the film but I don't know if they are the same thing yet. It's not been decided," Helen said.

The first film, "Bridget Jones's Diary," released in 2001, grossed $281 million internationally, while 2004's sequel, "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason," took in $262 million, according to EW.
