Earlier this year, scenes for the movie were shot at one of Ed’s Dublin concerts, and he looks set to play a bigger part, by making a cameo.
A source tells The Sun: “Ed was really keen to be part of the movie after granting access to film at his gig.
“He’s got experience playing himself in ‘Home And Away’ and is not daunted by the prospect of starring alongside Renée.
“‘Bridget Jones’ is a huge British film so he feels nabbing a cameo is a bit of a coup.
“He just hopes he’ll make the final cut.”
Filming for the movie is well underway, and Renée Zellweger has been spotted with her co-stars on set in London.
Pictures from the movie’s location shoots have hinted at the film’s storyline, and in a number of recent snaps, Renée is sporting a baby bump.
The lead character has also been given a 2015 overhaul, and in the first official promotional picture, Bridget’s ditched the diary for a modern alternative.
