has provided an update on the much-speculated Bridget Jones 3
The tentatively titled Bridget Jones's Baby
was in development earlier this year, but work on the project apparently stalled because Grant was dissatisfied with the script
Grant said he still has high hopes for the Bridget Jones
sequel while promoting his new film The Pirates! Band of Misfits
in New York City.
"I've seen some scripts. They haven't quite hit the nail yet, but they will. They're working on it," the actor told MTV News
Grant also joked that the new film will likely include at least one brawl between his character Daniel Cleaver and Colin Firth's Marc Darcy.
"Yes, our public demands some more fisticuffs," he quipped.
