Kristen Wiig says she's not making a Bridesmaids sequel.

The US actress starred in and co-wrote last year's hugely successful comedy.

But Kristen, who penned the movie with Annie Mumolo, told The Hollywood Reporter: "We aren't working on that. Annie and I aren't planning a sequel.

"We are writing something else."

The ensemble comedy, produced for about 32 million dollars, grossed 288 million dollars worldwide and is considered a best picture contender at the Oscars.

Universal sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the studio is willing to pursue another Bridesmaids without Kristen.

"We are over-the-moon with the success of Bridesmaids, and if we do a sequel we want to get it right," a studio rep said.

"We are talking to filmmakers now about concepts, and if the right one emerges, we'll move forward."

Bridesmaids also starred Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd and Matt Lucas.
