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:

Last week, we heard that Universal was planning on moving forward with Bridesmaids 2, even though Kristen Wiig said she wasn't interested in getting involved.
When asked about it during a recent interview, BM co-star Melissa McCarthy had the following to say:

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??

Too bad! We were REALLY liking what Bridesmaids director Paul Feig had to say about a sequel possibility!
During a recent interview, Jon Hamm opened up about Bridesmaids 2, and he said he doesn't think Kristen Wiig will be up for it:
