    Kristen Wiig Not Planning to Do BRIDESMAIDS Sequel

    Earlier this month, we reported that Universal was considering a Bridesmaids sequel, and would do it whether co-writer and star Kristen Wiig was on board or not. Wiig has not expressed interest in doing a sequel and said she was currently at work writing another film with her Bridesmaids co-writer Annie Mumolo. However, Bridesmaids co-star Wendi McLendon-Covey said that Wiig may do the sequel, and had never turned it down flat. The truth, it turns out, is somewhere in between.

    Hit the jump for what Wiig had to say about Bridesmaids 2.

    E! Online caught up with Wiig at the Golden Globes and asked her directly about the potential sequel. Wiig replied,

    “We’re not planning on doing one. We had a special time making the first one, but we’re really excited to try something else.”

    So like McLendon-Covey said, Wiig never said unequivocally that she won’t do a sequel. As she told E!, she’s not “planning” on doing one, but that doesn’t mean she’ll never ever do it.
    Until Universal throws enough money at her...

    First Poster For Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America Wields Two Guns - CinemaBlend.com

    It's hard to express just how bloody, depraved and sometimes insane Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America can be. The latest film from the Police Academy actor-turned-indie-director premiered as a Midnight Madness selection at last fall's Toronto Film Festival, and just to give you a taste of what happens, opens with our main character (Mad Men's Joel Murray) fantasizing about murdering his next-door neighbors and their baby. There is a lot of blood. Obviously the midnight crowd ate it up, and Magnolia Pictures is hoping regular audiences do the same, when they open God Bless America on video on-demand April 6 and in theaters May 11.
    Looking forward to this...

    Sean Penn-Directed 'The Comedian' Will Be Kristen Wiig's Next Film; Reason For Not Doing 'Bridesmaids' Is To Avoid 'SNL' Curse | The Playlist

    Described by producer/co-scribe Art Linson as a "romantic comic drama," the movie has been in the works for quite some time. In its earliest stages, it was rumored to be a potential project for a Scorsese-De Niro reunion. Penn was later unveiled as the helmer, for what will be his first effort behind the camera since 2008's "Into The Wild" starring Emile Hirsch. In "The Comedian," Wiig is set to star as a redhead love interest for De Niro's has-been comedian, who is sentenced to community service after hitting a heckler in the head with a microphone.

    As we touched upon in yesterday's story, Wiig's hesitance (possibly resistance) in doing a "Bridesmaids" sequel reportedly has to do with her enthusiasm to "try something else," with Vulture now adding that she's well aware of the "checkered track record of SNL comics and Hollywood’s tendency to pigeonhole them into profitable oblivion." One only has to look at the track record of folks like Molly Shannon, Chris Kattan, Tim Meadows, Julia Sweeny, Chris Farley and Al Franken to find all the evidence you need of former 'SNL' alums whose big screen flames fizzled very, very fast. And while "Bridesmaids" isn't based on a pre-existing sketch, Wiig's character is very much an archetype of a variety she plays on the show (neurotic, insecure) and so it's easy to see why she wants to prove herself versatile first.

    Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent & Eddie Marsan Round Out Cast For 'Filth' With James McAvoy | The Playlist

    Rising actress Imogen Poots ("Fright Night," "Solitary Man"), seasoned vet Jim Broadbent (recently seen across from Meryl Streep in "The Iron Lady") and go-to slimeball Eddie Marsan have come aboard the film that has also added Joanne Froggatt to its ranks. The book is right in the usual Welsh wheelhouse, both lurid and darkly hilarious, as it follows the adventures of Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a sex-obsessed, cocaine-addicted, bigoted Scottish police officer who is supposed to be investigating a murder but gets sidetracked by his own peculiarities, worries and hangups ranging from the pranks he pulls on his co-workers to his various sexual conquests. Looking in on Robertson is partner-of-sorts, Ray Lennox (Bell), and his boss, Bob Toal, in a story that is as outrageous, inventive and edgy as you might expect from Welsh.

    There's no mention in Variety's report on Alan Cumming, who Welsh told us would be playing Toal in the picture, and if the IMDB page is anything to go by, he's been replaced by John Sessions. As for Poots, she'll be Amanda Drummond, a colleague of Bruce while Marsan gets the role of the shady Bladesey.

    Production begins this week with Jon S. Baird ("Cass") at the helm, and shooting slated for Scotland, Sweden, Belgium and Germany. No release date yet, but with this cast and material, we'll be keeping it on our radar for 2013.
    Still my favorite Irvine Welsh novel. High hopes.
