'Bridesmaids' Sequel Sans Kristen Wiig?
A Bridesmaids sequel may be on the way – but Kristen Wiig says she won’t be a part of it.
“We aren’t working on that,” Kristen told The Hollywood Reporter. “[Co-writer Annie Mumolo] and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.”
A source at Universal told THR that the studio would pursue a sequel without Kristen but wouldn’t elaborate on whether the same group would work on the new installment of the story.
“The key is we have to come up with an idea that is as good or better than the first one,” producer Judd Apatow told THR. “We don’t want to do it unless it can be great. I don’t think anyone has had the brain space to think about it yet. Hopefully that can begin thisâ€¯year.”
