    Judd Apatow, Paul Feig & The Final Word On The Much-Discussed 'Bridesmaids' Sequel: We'll Do A Sequel If & When A Worthy Idea Surfaces

    God, the "Bridesmaids" sequel conversation has to stop. It all started when Universal said they'd consider making a sequel with or without lead actress Kristen Wiig (who wrote the script with her pal Annie Mumolo). Of course they would: the hilarious and successful comedy became t...

    Universal Thinking About 'Bridesmaids' Sequel Without Kristen Wiig

    Universal had a pretty bumpy 2011, but one very bright spot on their balance sheet was the modestly budegeted, Judd Apatow produced, R-rated hit "Bridesmaids." The film was nothing short of a sensation, powering its way to $288 million worldwide, but before word could even begin to get kno...

    Melissa McCarthy & Paul Feig Project Titled 'Dumb Jock' & Talks New Project 'Tammy'

    Also Writing Dark Comedy With 'The Help' Director Tate Taylor; Jon Hamm Says He Doubts Kristen Wiig Will Want To Do 'Bridesmaids 2'So just how scorching is the heat on Melissa McCarthy right now after her breakout turn earlier this year in "Bridesmaids"?

And while we'll believe it when we see it, that's just an indication of how universally beloved in a span of about four or five months. And Hollywood isn't wasting any time in making s...

    Albert Brooks Talks Dad Role In New Judd Apatow Film, Says Jonah Hill And Vince Vaughn May Appear

    Star Also Turned Down A Role In Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives,' But Wants To Be In 'Logan's Run'Now that Terrence Malick has evolved into a workhorse, much to the pleasure of every cinemaniac, if there's another guy we'd like to see working more frequently, it would be Albert Brooks. He by no means has a small body of work, but for 40+ years in the business, there are surprisingly few credits to his name. Despite this, however, he has managed to craft several memorable movies and characters: his Oscar-nominated turn in James L. Brooks's "Broadcast News" was unquestionably affecting, he was a perfect ingredient in the moving Pixar ...
