It has been reported that a sequel to the surprise hit of 2011, Bridesmaids is all set to go ahead and that the ball will start rolling on it this year. However, it appears that one of the stars of Bridesmaids, Kristen Wiig will not be appearing in the Bridesmaids sequel. That means that Bridesmaids 2 could be set to have a whole new cast of Bridesmaids, although they are still discussing ideas for the sequel.
Bridesmaids producer Judd Apatow explained, “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. I don’t think anyone has had the brain space to think about it yet. Hopefully that can begin this year.” However, Kristen Wiig insisted that she would not be appearing in the Bridesmaids sequel.
Kristen explained, “We aren’t working on that. Co-writer Annie Mumolo and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.” Universal are keen to cash in on the success of Bridesmaids and have insisted that they will definitely push on with the sequel despite the fact that Kristen Wiig will not be involved. Let’s just hope it lives up to Bridesmaids.
