Bridesmaids was easily the surprise comedy hit of the summer, taking in a whopping $284 million worldwide from just a $32 million production budget. While a sequel to such a successful movie seems inevitable, it appears that star Kristen Wiig isn't interested. Here's what her co-star, Jon Hamm, had to say about a Bridesmaids sequel.
Director Paul Feig and actress Melissa McCarthy have both expressed interest in returning for a sequel, but it seems Universal may need to convince Kristen Wiig to return first. Kristen Wiig also co-wrote Bridesmaids with Annie Mumolo, so they may need her to return for scripting duties as well. Jon Hamm also said he enjoyed how much heart they put into Bridesmaids.
"I had a feeling that it was going to be a great movie. I have ultimate confidence in Kristen to be funny. I was pleased to see that they were able to make the movie with the amount of heart that they did. It's a funny movie, [but] also at the end of the day it's a very sweet film."
