Glasses of chardonnay at the ready: the first trailer for the forthcoming third Bridget Jones film has just arrived.
Not only does it feature a preggo Bridget – unsurprisingly, seeing as the movie’s called Bridget Jones’s Baby – but there’s also a brief flash of guest actor Ed Sheeran, and it looks like the film’s heroine is attempting to chat him up in a bar.
Last year the singer-songwriter shared a selfie from the film’s set, showing Renee Zellweger’s title character in the background. “Spent the day being an actor in the new Bridget Jones movie. Loved it, you’re gonna love it too,” he wrote.
The new Bridget Jones movie isn’t Sheeran’s first foray into acting. He had a recurring role in The Bastard Executioner, a US historical drama series from the creator of Sons Of Anarchy that debuted on FX last September, but has since been cancelled.
The new Bridget Jones movie sees Colin Firth reprising his role as Mark Darcy, but Hugh Grant will not be back as Daniel Cleaver. Emma Thompson also features as Bridget’s doctor, and by the looks of the trailer, Bridget ends up at a Glastonbury-alike festival too.
Bridget Jones’s Baby is not an adaptation of Helen Fielding’s third novel in the series, in which Firth’s character was killed off, but is instead based on various newspaper columns she wrote for The Independent in 2005. The film is scheduled for release on September 16, 2016.
