Kristen Wiig Silences Rumours of a Bridesmaids Sequel

Kristen Wiig has put an end to speculation that she is writing a sequel to the hit comedy Bridesmaids. .

39-year-old Wiig, who starred and co-wrote the film, has insisted she will not be involved in  Bridemaids 2. She told E! online ‘We’re not planning on doing one (a sequel). We had a special time making the first one, but we’re really excited to try something else,’

Speculation of a follow up has been rife since director Paul Feig  said he would love to make Bridesmaids 2. Melissa McCarthy has also said that she would sign on for a sequel if Wiig was involved.

But this isn’t the last we’ve heard of the fabulous Wiig. She went on to tell E! that she is writing another all female comedy alongside Annie Mumulo, who co-wrote Bridesmaids with Wiig. She said of the project. ‘It’s going to be a little bit of a different tone. but it’s going to be a comedy, for sure.’
