Universal sources say the studio is willing to pursue another Bridesmaids without Wiig. "We are over the moon with the success of Bridesmaids, and if we do a sequel we want to get it right," a Universal rep tells THR. "We are talking to filmmakers now about concepts, and if the right one emerges, we'll move forward." The studio rep declines to elaborate on what elements it would deem essential -- whether, for example, original director Paul Feig would be involved -- but Universal is focused on McCarthy as a key player to get a sequel rolling. Among the projects the Emmy-winning actress has attached herself to is the Universal comedy ID Theft with Jason Bateman, and sources say other projects are brewing.
