Kristen Wiig has finally silenced speculation of a Bridesmaids sequel, insisting she is "not planning" to write a follow-up.

Rumors have been rife the former Saturday Night Live funnywoman would pen Bridesmaids 2 following the runaway success of the movie last year (11).

Castmember and stand-out star Melissa McCarthy recently admitted she would only sign on for a sequel if Kristen Wiig was involved, but the star, who co-wrote the screenplay with fellow lead Annie Mumolo, has now told fans not to expect a second outing.

She tells E! Online, "We're not planning on doing one (a sequel). We had a special time making the first one, but we're really excited to try something else."

However, Kristen Wiig reveals she is teaming up with Annie Mumolo to write another female comedy: "It's going to be a little bit of a different tone. but it's going to be a comedy, for sure."
