With Kristen Wiig less than high on the idea of a Bridesmaids 2, Universal indicated last week that the studio might like to move forward with a sequel focused on the movie's star Melissa McCarthy. One problem, though. "God, I wouldn't want to," McCarthy told E! on Saturday. "I would never want to. I think it's a terrible idea." She went on to clarify, "I don't know anything about it. But I know that nobody wants to do [a sequel] unless it's great." Free Oscar advice, Universal: Maybe table your money-hungry, cast-displeasing attempts to bang out a Bridesmaids sequel during the month where Oscar ballots are out and your movie appears to be surging with awards voters? It's a thought!
