Regarding a Possible ‘Bridesmaids’ Sequel: ‘It’s a Crime to Not Use Them Again’

By  · Published on May 20th, 2011

The above headline is a direct quote from direct Paul Feig when Vulture asked him about the possibility of a sequel. Thus, it seems like creatively, he’s on board, but it remains to be seen if the business end of things will give him and the cast an opportunity.

Personally, Bridesmaids 2: This Time It’s Personal would make a much better sequel than, say, 28 Dresses so that’s a bonus.

There’s no real news here, but it’s important to note when a director is so in love with his cast that he’d want to see them come together again, especially when the distinction is actually warranted. Melissa McCarthy, who stole most of the scenes she was in, shared his enthusiasm, saying, “I will show up wherever these guys tell me to go. If it’s a play in their backyard, I will gladly do it. I’ll do kids’ parties for them, I’ll do bar mitzvahs; I’m in.”

Hopefully Bridesmaids 2 will hit theaters and not just someone’s backyard in Hollywood.
