I have been reading this bit of news everywhere, and if indeed Helen Fielding is writing her third book, is it time to make this film a reality? I don’t know, I’m likely to think that it was perhaps slightly tongue in-cheek when you mentioned some sort of a plot, for I have also read that you have not signed on to do the film, neither has Hugh. So where does that leave us? Any joy I might feel about this project coming to life is on hold until there is a tangible word that everyone is officially on. Oh but I hope you do decide to do it.
The plot sounds delicious : you and Bridget, um sorry, I mean Mark and Bridget try to have a baby, that does not work, she goes back to Daniel Cleaver – silly Bridget, and he dumps her when she becomes pregnant – of course he does. Mark being a gentle sort, takes her back and they live happily ever after or do they? Mmmm lovely, but realistically, how far can this story go? I sincerely hope there is a bit more to it than that. Has Fielding talked to you about the book? is it similar to the details you have sort of let slip? Do let me know, that would be perfectly alright, I won’t tell anyone.
