'Bridesmaids' Sequel Sans Kristen Wiig?

'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 this year.”

    Sequels always ruin the original. Why not have a different movie with the same cast or something like that??? I liked Bridesmaids but its not like you can make a sequel without ruining it.

    I finally saw the movie yesterday. If Kristen Wiig doesn’t do it, I won’t see it.
    Hollywood is desperate for ideas, sequel, presequel, and remakes is all they have to offer.
    I ‘d rather see little indi american or french movies, or from any country if it’s good, with real ideas, no Tintin and teenmovies for godsake.

    Kristen Wiig & Melissa McCarthy are the funniest starlets right now. Good luck to both of them! Hopefully they’ll do another movie rather than just a sequel.
