Bridesmaids 2 Walking Down The Aisle Without Kristen Wiig!

Okay, are you done hyperventilating yet?? Can you handle the details??

Yes?? Okay, let's go!

While Universal is enthusiastically brainstorming stories for the sequel, Kristin Wiig has said she's not working on it.

But why?? Is it because she might think it stands strong as it is and doesn't need to become a franchise? Or is it mostly business??

Inside whispers say the girls raised an eyebrow when their bonus checks came in with only $100,000 printed on them. And yeah, we can see that. We mean, that movie made BANK — a whopping $288 million!!

So thinking it might have something to do with the numbers it seems, Universal chief Ron Meyer reportedly took her out to dinner and dangled an eight figure check if she were to do the sequel.

Unfortunately for all of us, she declined.

But! Wiig or not, Universal is going forward, with Melissa McCarthy stepping up to play the lead. Like we said, they're fishing for the right concept.

Producer Judd Apatow states:

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.

But as soon as they catch it, production is gonna start faster than the projectile vomiting from the original!!

    This will fail. I think it's a great movie - but they ALL played a great part in the movie. EVERYONE. Kristen Wiig is needed!

  2. 2

    MISTAKE. People LOVE Kristen Wiig and will not want to see it without her!

  3. 3

    The first one wasn't funny. Why continue with a BAD series

  4. 4

    It'll do bad. I think the first one was good but pretty overrated.

    Re: sweetreat2 – Perhaps you don't appreciate funny if it is coming from women becoz this movie was hilarious. I don't know anyone…besides you…that didn't like it. Men and women alike. There has to be someone I suppose, there are those who say that Seinfeld wasn't funny too. Go figure.

    Re: ElleFromVan – Agreed.

    I thought the two best actresss were Melissa McCarthy and the girl who played Helen. I wouldn't miss Kristen Wigg. She looked too old to play the part she played.

  8. 8

    What?! That bums we out. While I think McCarthy is fantastic, it would be hard for me to want to watch a Bridesmaids movie without Wiig.

  9. 9

    I have only recently watched the movie and I enjoyed it but not as much as everyone else. I think the reason is it is hard for me to watch Kristen Wiig. She's so awkward it's just uncomfortable for me. I don't think the sequel will be much better without her.

    I liked the movie but Kristen, hmm not so much. I was disappointed with her acting skills. she's not funny!
