Hollywood is ramping up production and getting ready for a new Bridget Jones movie.

Patrick Dempsey is going to be in Bridget Jones 3.

After Patrick Dempsey, aka McDreamy, got fired from Grey's Anatomy, the actor is making his transition back to the big screen. First up: the set of Bridget Jones's Baby, the third move in the Bridget Jones franchise. Patrick Dempsey is set to join Renée Zellweger, who will reprise her role as Bridget Jones, and Colin Firth, who will return as Mark Darcy. Bridget Jones 3 According to Deadline, the plot will not be based on the book, Mad About The Boy, the third Bridget Jones book, but instead will be inspired by columns written by creator Helen Fielding. Though no details are yet available about Patrick Dempsey's role, it is possible he could be the new love rival to Colin Firth's character, since Hugh Grant quit the series last year. Critics loved the Bridget Jones franchise. The film holds a 81% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes with an average score of 6.9/10, based on 154 reviews. The site's critical consensus reads: "Though there was controversy over the choice of casting, Zellweger's Bridget Jones is a sympathetic, likable, funny character, giving this romantic comedy a lot of charm." The first Bridget Jones movie made nearly $282 million worldwide over ten years ago.
