Universal is working on a sequel to the comedy hit Bridesmaids – without star Kristen Wiig. The studio is moving forward with its plans to make a sequel, which is not a huge surprise considering the film made $288 million worldwide on a $32 million budget. However, the studio will have to do so without screenwriter and star Kristen Wiig or her co-writer Annie Mumolo.
“We aren’t working on that,” said Wiig when asked about the sequel. “Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.”
Nonetheless, Universal says they’re willing to move forward with the film. Universal cheif Ron Meyer reportedly took Wiig out for lunch to try and get her to do the film, but she declined. Rumors say that the film may center around Melissa McCarthy’s character Megan, who is earning a lot of attention during award season.
