Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy – heck even the American version of the series The Office – Paul Feig really is the king of filmmaking comedy.
But could there be any sequels in the works for this films? 96FM’s Hour of Power hosts Kyle and Jackie O spoke to the man himself to find out.
“With the movies that you’ve done, are you looking at doing a part two of any of them?” Jackie asked. “Like I heard Ghostbusters was a possibility?”
Paul was the director for the remake of Ghostbusters that gave the main cast a female makeover, but sadly he told us that this one wasn’t on the cards just yet.
“I don’t think the studio has any appetite to do it but I would love to do it,” Paul said. “We had a lot of fun making that.”
What about the film that sent Melissa McCarthy into the stratosphere?
“Bridesmaids… like Beau was asking,” Jackie mentioned, referencing Beau Ryan who was filling-in for Kyle.
“Bridesmaids there has to be Bridesmaids. You have to make another Bridesmaids,” Beau reiterated.
“Well I know, but that’s really up to Kristen,” Paul said, Kristen Wiig who wrote and of course starred in the film.
“That was her baby.”
As for what is more likely to see a sequel, Paul told us that Spy was set up for another film and that a script had actually been written for The Heat starring Melissa McCarthy once again and Sandra Bullock.
“I’d like to do another Spy, I think that would be really fun,” Paul told us. “I think that one’s set up for a sequel.”
“There is a script for The Heat two, but Sandra hasn’t even read it she just doesn’t want to do another sequel but it’s really funny,” he added.
“It was very dark. It was like a comedian version of Silence of the Lambs. SO it got very. very scary and gross but really kind of hilarious.”
Okay so two things we can take from this chat:
1. Someone needs to get Kristen Wiig on the phone and get her to agree to a Bridesmaids Two
2. Can someone else please convince Sandra Bullock to do The Heat sequel? The damn thing’s been written already!
