Dust off your granny panties and your velvet bunny costume (but leave the cigs and cocktails in the rubbish pile — so '90s), Bridget Jones is coming back to the big screen, and Hugh Grant is on board!

Despite earlier reports that he would not rejoin co-stars Renee Zellwegger and Colin Firth for the third installment of the calorie-counting Jones and her hot mess of a love life, Grant said that delays in filming the project had nothing to do with his willingness to partake. "We are still working on the script, hence the delay to the start of production, but the film is going ahead as planned," Grant told BBC News.

Directed by Peter Cattaneo (The Full Monty) and co-written by Helen Fielding and David Nicholls, the as-of-yet un-subtitled sequel will see Grant return as Jones' debonair yet devilish ex-boss/ex-lover Daniel Cleaver. Zellweger and Firth are both set to reprise their roles as the clumsy singleton and her main man, Mark Darcy.
