So far, we've heard from Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig regarding the rumored plans Universal has for making a "Bridesmaids" sequel whether or not star, co-writer and co-creator Kristen Wiig comes back on board. Generally, the consensus from the rest of the cast has been without Wiig, there's no reason for them to come back. And for producer and director Apatow and Feig, it's all about having a worthy concept, and if not, they're not inclined to rehash the formula.

Kristen Wiig Bridesmaids

So far, we've heard from Jon HammMelissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Judd Apatow and Paul Feig regarding the rumored plans Universal has for making a "Bridesmaids" sequel whether or not star, co-writer and co-creator Kristen Wiig comes back on board. Generally, the consensus from the rest of the cast has been without Wiig, there's no reason for them to come back. And for producer and director Apatow and Feig, it's all about having a worthy concept, and if not, they're not inclined to rehash the formula.

Well, Wiig has finally broken her veil of silence and weighed in with a pretty emphatic statement about whether or not she'll do another movie. "We're not planning on doing one," Wiig told E! at the Golden Globes. "We had a special time making the first one, but we're really excited to try something else."

That something else is a script she's been working with her "Bridesmaids" co-writer Annie Mumolo, a project that apparently won't quite reach the grossout levels of shitting in a sink. "It's going to be a little bit of a different tone," she said, "but it's going to be a comedy, for sure."

That Wiig wants to spread her wings a bit and trying something new with her success and doors it has opened isn't too surprising (and does seem to confirm her hurt feelings after Universal apparently stiffed the cast with paltry bonuses after the movie became a big hit). And on a broader level, Apatow hasn't been one to produce sequels either, though he isn't adverse to taking certain characters and giving them new terrain to play in, with films like "Get Him to the Greek" or the upcoming "This Is 40."

So with Wiig throwing down the gauntlet, can this be the last time a question is asked about a "Bridesmaids" sequel? Thanks.
