<i>Bridesmaids</i> Sequel May Happen Without Kristen Wiig

It looks as if Universal is considering a Bridesmaids sequel even though star and co-writer Kristen Wiig doesn’t want to be a part of it. “We aren’t working on that,” Wiig told The Hollywood Reporter. “Annie [Mumolo, co-writer] and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.”

It is unclear why Wiig isn’t game. She could be trying to tackle different projects or, as some reports suggest, she may have felt underwhelmed by the financial side of the project. Judd Apatow, who produced the film, also hasn’t confirmed whether or not he’d be interested in the film.

“The key is we have to come up with an idea that is as good or better than the first one,” Apatow revealed.
