Is Bridesmaids back?! Well, not exactly but four of the cast members are returning to the big screen together! The foursome Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Chris O’Dowd join Parks & Recreation star Adam Scott, Transformers actress Megan Fox, Ed Burns and Hamm’s longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt in the romantic comedy Friends With Kids.
Written, directed and starring Westfeldt, the film is about “two best friends (Scott and Westfeldt) who decide to have a child together while keeping their relationship platonic, so they can avoid the toll kids can take on romantic relationships.”
While Friends With Kids looks like a must-see romcom, there’s been a bit of drama surrounding the Bridesmaids sequel and the first film’s lead Kristen Wiig. While there were rumors that the second film would not involve Wiig at all, her Brides costar Melissa McCarthy called that possibility “a terrible idea.”
Melissa commented on the rumor at a Mike & Molly panel at TCA, saying, “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 added that she didn’t find the gossip “factual in any way.”
