Bridesmaids star says sequel won’t happen

January 18th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig has played down rumours of a sequel to last year’s comedy hit.

The actress, who also co-wrote and co-produced the $288 million box office smash, told E! Online that the makers behind the first film are “not planning on doing one”.

“We had a special time making the first one, but we’re really excited to try something else,” she said.

Instead, Wiig and her Bridesmaids co-writer Annie Mumolo are working on a new project. “It’s going to be a little bit of a different tone, but it’s going to be a comedy, for sure.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
