'Bridesmaids' minus Kristen Wiig? Say it ain't so! (POLL)
Alas, according to THR, Wiig won't be back for a sequel to the film, though Universal may be going forward with it anyway. A "Bridesmaids 2" without it's star? Wiig tells the site, "We're not working on that. Annie and I aren't planning a sequel. We are writing something else." Well, sometimes it's best not to mess with a good thing, but would you watch a sequel without their writing and Wiig's performance?
A Universal rep tells the site, "We are over the moon with the success of "Bridesmaids ," and if we do a sequel we want to get it right. We are talking to filmmakers now about concepts, and if the right one emerges, we'll move forward." Producer Judd Apatow tells the site in a statement, "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 thisâ¯year."
Sources also point to breakout star Melissa McCarthy to be the driving force if the sequel does go forward. So we want to know if you would watch "Bridesmaids 2" without Kristen Wiig. Take our poll below and let us know.
