At least, for her it isn't. So if you were holding out hope, that needs to stop now.
Ever since the original hit theaters, people have been chomping at the bit to know if a sequel to the HIGHlarious flick Bridesmaids was in the cards. Of course, everyone from the audience to the studios wanted to hear a big "YES" come from the creative minds behind the movie, but as it turns out, the likelihood of it happening is slim to none. At least, not with Kristen Wiig attached.
The SNL star put the official kibosh on the idea over the weekend, explaining:
"We'e not planning on doing one. We had a special time making the first one, but we're really excited to try something else."
Now, is that to say that the studio won't make a sequel without Kristen Wiig attached to star and write? No. But do you honestly think that ANY of the cast is going to come back to the franchise without her? You think Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy are going to find time in their very busy schedules to do a movie when their fearless leader says their shouldn't be one? C'mon! It's called loyalty. Some people have it, some people don't.
But here is the good news: when Kristen refers to a "we" in that quote, she is talking about her writing partner Annie Mumolo. This could mean they have another equally hysterical movie up their sleeves for next year. So maybe we won't see the same set of ladies in puffy purple dresses dance to Wilson Philips. But maybe … they'll get to do something else equally as HIGHlarious!!!
Dreaming big for that one!
