Actress Kristen Wiig has ruled out a follow-up to her smash hit comedy Bridesmaids after turning down a big money deal to write a sequel.
The funnywoman's film about a doomed bachelorette party was a surprise hit at the box office, raking in $288 million worldwide following its release in 2011.
The cast, including Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne and Maya Rudolph, have both voiced their desire to return for a second movie.
But Wiig reveals she snubbed a sequel offer - despite being in line for a huge pay day.
"It wasn't a hard decision. We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one.
"But that's not my goal in my creative life," she told Harper's Bazaar.
