Is Kristen Wiig the bride in Bridesmaids?

Check out the bold text from this article...

This is another romantic comedy, heavy chick flick territory, so watch out. Last year we reported on various casting for a comedy co-written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo called Bridesmaids that is about, as you may have guessed, two women battling to plan their friend's wedding. As cheesy as that plot sounds, it actually has a stellar cast including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Jon Hamm, Dianne Wiest, Matthew Lucas, Chris O'Dowd, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy and Wendy McLendon-Covey. The Playlist got their hands on an early first look from the latest Entertainment Weekly which you can check out below.

Bridesmaids is directed by Paul Feig, of feature films I Am David and Unaccompanied Minors, but he has a lot of TV directing work on shows like "Arrested Development", "The Office" and "Nurse Jackie". "It's more of a story about friendship than a 'wedding movie'," Wiig told EW. "There's a weird pressure in society, and in a lot of these kinds of movies, that says you need to be married. We were careful about avoiding that." The plot sees Byrne as the "bridesmaid from hell" who tries to take maid of honor duties from newbie Rudolph. Universal is expecting this to be a hit, as it's scheduled for release on May 13th, 2011 early next summer.

So Paul Feig also directed Wiig in Unaccompanied Minors, and Judd Apatow is producing, which really increases the chance of a hit, with at least $60 million in the box office.

What's interesting is that I thought Wiig and Rose were going to go at it as the bridesmaids, but it looks like Wiig is giving that role to Maya, and Kristen is playing the bride.

Which role do you think Kristen should play?
