Bridget's Back and This Time In Chiswick
Business Park Plays Host to Sit Up Britain
Bridget Jones, heroine of singletons, diary daydreamers and calorie counters alike, returns to the big screen this week as Helen Fielding’s self-analyzing, big knicker wearing, thirty-something.
The envy of women the world over when she finally got her man, the exquisite Mark Darcy, played by Chiswick’s Colin Firth, the only thing left askew in Bridget’s life was her farcical job as a reporter for “Sit Up Britain”.
Cue Chiswick Business Park, host to the high tech offices where Bridget works for the nonsensical news programme with her ludicrous boss who never misses a chance to humiliate his leading reporter. With the business park fast becoming a new media hub for London, it’s fitting that it was chosen as the location of the highs, lows and rock bottoms Bridget’s media career.
The film, based on Helen Fielding’s best-seller ‘The Edge of Reason’, is directed by Beeban Kidron and stars Renée Zellweger along with local lads Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
