Bridget Jones’s Diary is set to be a musical according to Variety.
Working Title are producing the show, and will be hoping to replicate the success of the live-action Billy Elliot stage show – which has just been nominated for a ton of Tony Awards.
Helen Fielding, who wrote the ridiculously successful books, will apparently contribute to the lyrics.
Expect to see this heart-warming tale of the slightly overweight singleton sometime in 2011. Renee Zellweger played the character in two big screen adaptations — Bridget Jones’s Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.
