Bridget Jones to come under attack!

A British comedy novel reviewed in the UK as being the only true male version of the book 'Bridget Jones Diary' is attracting increasing interest from Hollywood studios as they set out to capitalise on the success of the recent Rene Zellweger film.

Dougie Brimson, author of Billy's Log -the dairy of a single 29 year old Englishman who spends his days struggling to come to terms with modern day life and the nightmare of dating- has recently returned from Los Angeles
where preliminary discussions were said to be 'exciting'.

Ironically, Brimson, who is widely regarded as one of the worlds leading authorities on the subject of soccer hooliganism, was not in Hollywood to promote this book at all. He was instead a guest of upcoming female director Lexi Alexander and was in LA to discuss a separate and completely unrelated film project as well as to make a cameo appearance in her latest production, Wheelman.

However, his visit coincided with the appearance of a glowing review of Billy's Log in the romance section of www.about.com and as a result of this, and a very positive response from the Los Angeles entertainment community, moves are now underway to launch the novel in the US.
