Kristen Wiig Has no Interest in a Bridesmaids Sequel

Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids (2011) Movie Image“Bridesmaids” was decent, especially for a chick flick comedy (sorry, ladies), but let’s fact it, it was about 30 minutes too long. The most interesting part about the movie for me? All the scenes that didn’t have to do with Kristen Wiig and her boyfriends. And this is coming from someone who really likes Wiig’s comedy. So, having said that, would a “Bridesmaids 2″ without Wiig really be all that bad? I don’t know the answer to that, but we might just find out.

After “Bridesmaids” became a sleeper hit for Universal, the studio is understandably psyched for a sequel. The problem is, Wiig has said that she doesn’t want to come back, thus leading to the notion of a “Bridesmaids 2″ sans Wiig, one of the first movie’s writers and frontwoman. We’ve since learn that the studio is doing all it can to woo her back. Did they succeed?

The folks at E! caught up to Wiig at the Golden Globes and got her answer:

We’re not planning on doing one. We had a special time making the first one, but we’re really excited to try something else.

So yup, if Universal still insists on doing a “Bridesmaids” sequel anytime soon (or until Wiig changes her mind in the future), it sure sounds like they’ll have to do it without Wiig’s or her partner Annie Mumolo’s involvement.

The other big issue is that Melissa McCarthy, the break-out star of the first movie, and the actress the studio thinks they can wrap a “Bridesmaids” sequel around, has said that she doesn’t want to return if Wiig and the rest of the ladies from the first movie aren’t also back. Of course, actors have made proclamations before about not doing a movie without this or that person, but ended up doing it anyway, so it wouldn’t exactly be the first time…

    Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo and Melissa McCarthy are the equivalent to Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis.
