Kristen Wiig - Bridesmaids movie update

Here is director Paul Feig, writer/actress Kristen Wiig, and producer Judd Apatow:

Some tidbits are that Kristen's boyfriend, Brian Petsos, joins the cast, as does John Hamm, Matt Lucas, and Academy Award winner, Dianne Wiest. Plus we already announced that Rose Byrne and Maya Rudolph are in the film. Here are some more details...

A comedy centered on two women battling to plan their friend's wedding party.

Wiig is said to play a maid of honor begrudgingly competing with a bridesmaid (Byrne) for the bride's (Rudolph) attention.

Director: Paul Feig

Paul directed Wiig in Unaccompanied Minors, and he's also directed episodes of the following shows: Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Weeds, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Bored to Death.

Now he's ready to direct another feature. I've got to admit, that's an impressive way to pursue a directing career. After a not-so-successful first film (Unaccompanied Minors), he works his way through legendary TV shows and earns another chance to direct a film.

Writers: Annie Mumolo (screenplay) & Kristen Wiig (screenplay)

We all know Kristen. But who's Annie? Annie is an actress who is writing, producing, and acting in Bridesmaids. She's obviously a lont-time friend of Kristen. Annie has acted in Bewitched, Curious George, and on Two and a Half Men.


Rose Byrn - She's been around... Star Wars Ep 2, City of Ghosts, Troy (the virgin that Brad Pitt goes for), Wicker Park, Marie Antoinette, 28 Weeks Later, Knowing, and Get Him to the Greek.

John Hamm - Mad Men, 30 Rock, Sarah Silverman Program, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Shrek 4, & the new A-Team.

Dianne Wiest - Footloose, Hannah and Her Sisters, Lost Boys, Parenthood, Edward Scissorhands, Bullets Over Broadway, Birdcage, Horse Wisperer, Practical Magic, Law & Order, Robots, & Dan in Real Life

Matt Lucas - Played Tweedledee and Tweedledum in Burton's Alice in Wonderland.

Maya Rudolph - Gattaca, Duplex, 50 First Dates, Shrek 3 (Rapunzel), MacGruber, & Grown Ups.
