Kristen Wiig Not Involved With a Bridesmaids Sequel!

Thursday, January 5, 2012

KRISTEN Wiig won’t be involved in a Bridesmaids sequel.

The Hollywood actress co-wrote the first script with writing partner Annie Mumolo and studio Universal are keen to capitalize on the success of the comedy — which grossed $288 million worldwide and was produced for just $32 million — with a follow-up film.

But Wiig says she’s too busy with other commitments.

“We aren’t working on that. Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else,” she said.

A source added, “We are over the moon with the success of ‘Bridesmaids’, and if we do a sequel we want to get it right.

“We are talking to filmmakers now about concepts, and if the right one emerges, we’ll move forward.”

Producer Judd Apatow is open to a sequel, but only if the idea is “great” and insiders believe he will only stay involved if Kristen remains on board.

“The key is we have to come up with an idea that is as good or better than the first one. We don’t want to do it unless it can be great,” Judd said.

“I don’t think anyone has had the brain space to think about it yet. Hopefully that can begin this year.”
