Grant: 'Third Bridget scripts failing to hit bullseye'

Hugh Grant has admitted the third Bridget Jones movie is still in doubt because a number of screenplays have failed to hit the "bullseye".

The star showed off his nasty side playing Daniel Cleaver opposite Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth in the first two films, which were both huge hits at the box office.

Reports have suggested all three stars are gearing up for a third installment, but Grant reveals they are still to sign any contracts as the draft storylines have not been up to scratch.

He tells Total Film magazine, "I did like playing Daniel Cleaver, but there is no definite part three. None of the three of us have signed up yet. There's been a number of drafts that have had great things in them but haven't quite hit the bullseye.

"But they're working on it again now with yet another writer, as soon as they get to a good point we will do it, I'm sure. It's just that it does have to be significantly reinvented."
