Rose Byrne has joined other cast members of Bridesmaids in expressing interest in returning to film a sequel of the popular 2011 comedy. Byrne, who played Helen Harris III in the movie, stated in an interview with People Magazine that she would “of course” be willing to do a follow-up to the film if the other leading ladies agreed to participate. The Australian actress suggested that a reunion would be a unique opportunity to bring everyone together, although it would be a “hard act to follow,” given the overwhelming success of the first movie.
Bridesmaids was a turning point for many of the film’s stars, including Byrne, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Ellie Kemper. Directed by Paul Feig, the movie tells the story of Annie (Wiig), who is the maid of honor for her best friend Lillian (Rudolph). However, things don’t always go according to plan, and the group of bridesmaids must navigate several hurdles on their journey to the wedding. The film was not only a huge box office success, but it also received critical acclaim for its hilarious script and talented cast.
Byrne further suggested that the group could potentially work on a different film project together, such as a reimagining of an existing movie. Although she acknowledged that it would be difficult to recreate the magic of Bridesmaids, the actress emphasized that she missed working with her co-stars and would be excited to collaborate with them again in any capacity.
The potential sequel has been a topic of discussion among fans and cast members alike, with Melissa McCarthy expressing a similar interest in returning to work with the group during an interview with People Magazine last month. The actress, who played Megan Price in the movie, said she would be happy to reunite with her old castmates “this afternoon, right now.” McCarthy went on to describe her experience working with the group as “magical” and noted that most of them were already good friends before filming Bridesmaids.
Byrne has showcased her comedic talents in both Bridesmaids and other films such as Neighbors. Still, she has also demonstrated her range as an actress by taking on more dramatic roles, such as her recent performance in Physical. Byrne will star opposite Seth Rogen in her next project, Platonic, a new Apple TV+ series. The actress spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the show, stating that she was excited to participate in a comedy series that was “very light and genuinely trying to go for big laughs.”
In conclusion, the potential return of the Bridesmaids cast for a sequel has generated a great deal of excitement among fans, and it seems like the stars themselves are eager to come together once more. Although nothing has been confirmed at this stage, the idea of a reunion is an intriguing concept that fans are undoubtedly keen to see come to fruition. Regardless of whether the sequel happens, Byrne and her co-stars continue to deliver excellent performances in a range of different roles, which is a testament to their versatility as actors.
