Melissa McCarthy continued to deny that there is any plan at present to go ahead with a film sequel to the feature smash Bridesmaids without co-star and co-writer Kristen Wiig. Appearing in Pasadena at TCA during a session promoting the CBS comedy Mike & Molly, McCarthy said of going forward without Wiig: “That seems like a terrible idea. I don’t know anything about it. But I mean, I would do anything with those ladies (from the film). If it’s a weird play in a backyard, I would do it. Bad blood? Oh no. Not at all.” She went on to comment regarding any Universal plan not involving Wiig, “I don’t think that they are. I don’t think that’s factual in any way.”
