This summer, producer JUDD APATOW (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and director PAUL FEIG (creator of television’s Freaks and Geeks) invite you to experience what happens when best friends forevermeet the wildest Bridesmaids ever.
KRISTEN WIIG (TV’s Saturday Night Live) leads the cast as Annie, a maid of honor whose life unravels as she leads her closest friend, Lillian (MAYA RUDOLPH of Away We Go), and a group of colorful bridesmaids—Helen (ROSE BYRNE of TV’s Damages), Rita (WENDI McLENDON-COVEY of TV’s Reno 911!), Becca (ELLIE KEMPER of TV’s The Office) and Megan (MELISSA McCARTHY of TV’s Mike & Molly)—on a wild ride down the road to matrimony.
Annie’s life keeps coming up short. But when she discovers her lifetime best friend is engaged, she simply must serve as Lillian’s maid of honor. Though lovelorn and broke, Annie dives into all of the required rituals as she gets to know the other ladies in the bridal party, including one particular rival (Helen) who is perfectly poised to fulfill all the duties that Annie struggles through. As she brings Lillian’s bridesmaids along on an escalating series of disasters, Annie realizes the person who knows her the best has introduced her to four strangers who will shake up her life for good.
Collaborating with producer Apatow and director/executive producer Feig on Bridesmaids are fellow producers BARRY MENDEL (Funny People, TheSixth Sense) and CLAYTON TOWNSEND (Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin), as well as screenwriters/co-producers Kristen Wiig and ANNIE MUMOLO.
