Renée Zellweger says she's "ready, willing and able" to take on the role of Bridget Jones in the sequel The Edge of Reason.

It's reported she was persuaded by Colin Firth, her on-screen lover in the first film, who is expected to reprise his role as Mark Darcy.

The script may also have had a bearing as Andrew Davies, who is writing the screenplay with Richard Curtis has promised a more streamlined Bridget.

"The script doesn't require her to bulk up all that much. The plot involves her doing time in a Thai jail for drug-smuggling, which means she actually has to lose weight," he said.
