Here's hoping McDreamy loves Bridget Jones just as she is.
Patrick Dempsey is in final negotiations to star in the third installment of the beloved Pride and Prejudice-inspired romcom franchise Bridget Jones's Diary, according to Deadline Hollywood.
The casting marks Dempsey's first role since he left Grey's Anatomy last season when his character, neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd, died in a car wreck after saving people from another crash.

Bridget Jones is back!
What has the hapless, loveable heroine of Helen Fielding's international bestseller Bridget Jones's Diary been up to since she took the world by storm in the 1990s?
The cover of Fielding's new novel, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, hints at motherhood, though the author isn't saying.
But she does say the book, to be published on Oct. 15, is set in present-day London. Bridget, who was played by Renée Zellweger on the big screen, hasn't kicked all of her vices (cigarettes and alcohol), and dating and dieting remain problem areas.

British good guy Colin Firth returns as Mark Darcy, Bridget Jones's sensible but sweet love interest. But in The Edge of Reason he's not beneath throwing a few punches: Firth, 44, recently talked about his onscreen tussle with Hugh Grant and his admiration for Renee Zellweger.

The Edge of Reason, indeed: The European premiere circuit for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason was plagued with problems, beginning in Paris, where proceedings began more than an hour late (we heard it was Hugh Grant holding things up, but we're not pointing any fingers). Renée Zellweger, sleek in a red strapless dress, told reporters that she was tired of questions about her weight. Two days later in Madrid, both Zellweger and Grant arrived late (45 minutes this time), and walked directly into the theater, bypassing waiting fans and press alike. On to Amsterdam, where the premiere itself went smoothly, but the afterparty was botched when the Escape nightclub was temporarily closed for a security sweep. By the time police allowed guests back in at 1:30 am, the party was essentially over. Things should have come together in London, home of Grant and Colin Firth (and Bridget Jones), but the weather wouldn't cooperate. Fans stuck out the rain to cheer on the stars: Firth arrived first, with Zellweger and Grant again showing up late. At the afterparty, Grant (who says he has tired of acting) was reportedly quite surly, complaining about his fame and being impatient with photographers. It's probably safe to assume there won't be a Bridget Jones, Part III...
