This is very surprising. Kick Ass though a great movie was not a financial success. Unfortunately it appears Matthew Vaughn won’t be returning for the sequel.
Director James Bobin and cowriter Nick Stoller will return and there’s still a chance Segel could star, but due to other commitments he won’t be able to write the sequel.
The “Saturday Night Live” star is refusing to do a reprise and tells THR she is working on something else with writing partner Annie Mumolo.
No, this is so very, very bad. It’s all that’s greedy and wrong with the Hollywood system. Why can’t they just let a good movie stand for what it is. Hire Wiig and Mumolo to do a different film and bill it from the ‘creators of Bridesmaids.’
A sequel to Bridesmaids without Wiig would call for a mass boycott and I hope the rest of the cast would be smart enough (and loyal enough) not to sign on.
