Kristen Wiig says she's not returning to Bridesmaids

01.18.2012

BRIDESMAIDS was a huge surprise hit, but star, co-writer and co-producer Kristen Wiig isn't planning on returning to it. 

"We're not planning on doing one," she recently told E! Online. "We had a special time making the first one, but we're really excited to try something else."

Refreshing to hear in this world where people just keep doing the same thing over and over. This might settle the matter once and for all, but we can bet people will still be asking her about it for a while to come.

Wiig also dropped hints about her latest project with her BRIDESMAIDS cowriter Annie Mumolo, which is supposed to be a script that's not as raunchy- "It's going to be a little bit of a different tone," Wiig said, "but it's going to be a comedy, for sure."

Since Universal already said they could go forward with the sequel without Wiig, does this bode badly for fans of the film?

WIIG-IN' OUT...

I'm glad she's a NO-GO...she's classy.

BRIDESMAIDS has turned out to be the fave film of all the most annoying women I know...and bc of that fact, for me personally, I don't want to see another one...bc I don't wanna give these women, or any women of that "type" (and i know you guys and gals know the "type" i'm talking about) any more ammunition.

So go ahead and make the sequel with TARA REID...so it disappears as quickly as anything else TARA REID has done (except botched plastic surgery)

Women who think they're funny and giggle at saying "he is a reTARD" like Zachs character from Hangover. They only reference the latest one liners but if you come at them with classic funny quotes that are ageless they're like "Huh?"

My Respect has gone up for Wiig

Leave it alone. Look what happened to Hangover 2. Yes, it made money but no one will say it was better or on par with the first.

It would be another Hangover 2

Freak success comedy that generates audience goodwill has a sequel rushed into production based solely on money, and turns out to be OK but derivative of the original. Wiig will likely return to the series eventually (there'll be too much pressure not to) but it's a good thing they're not eager to make another straight away.

Glad she isn't doing the sequel. But I heard her new movie will be 'Flowergirl' using a lot of the same characters, so that's disappointing.

Think about all the classic movies for which we clamor for sequels that never come to fruition and yet when information is leaked about the concept, casting ideas, costume designs, etc. we're horrified at the direction the project was going in and relieved that it never happened. Let Bridesmaids be like that. We can dream, but perhaps that's all we should do.

Good for her! I hope the rest of the cast does the same! Not every hit movie needs a damn sequel.
