Leo Woodall to join Renée Zellweger and Hugh Grant for Bridget Jones 4

Mad About the Boy, the fourth instalment in the adventures of Helen Fielding’s scatty heroine, has been confirmed for release on Valentine’s Day 2025

That movie charted Bridget’s unexpected pregnancy, which coincided with a love triangle as veteran on-off boyfriend Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) and a new suitor played by Patrick Dempsey vied for her affections. Joining Grant and Renée Zellweger are Emma Thompson, who played Bridget’s doctor in the third film, as well as series newcomers Chiwetel Ejiofor and Leo Woodall, the later on a roll following breakthrough parts in The White Lotus and One Day. Fielding has scripted the feature, which will be directed by Michael Morris, whose previous film was To Leslie, the drama starring Andrea Riseborough, who won a surprise Oscar nomination for her role last year.
