It looks like Bridesmaids won't be getting a sequel, as the movie's director has panned the idea of a second film.

Speaking at the Tribeca Film Festival, our go to misogyny-basher Paul Feig has kicked us right in the lady nuts by dashing hopes of a sequel to the 2011 female-led comedy.

As anticipated, we're taking the news really well.

"It's really up to Kristen, but also, sequels are dangerous," Feig told EW.

"People always say they want a sequel to Bridesmaids but the whole reason that movie worked was because Kristen Wiig's character is a mess, and she learned how to repair her life.

"So you can't do a sequel and she's a mess and has to repair her life again."

Bridesmaids – which follows former cake maker Annie (Kristen Wiig) as she attempts to serve as maid of honour at best friend Lilian's (Maya Rudolph) wedding – made household names out of its six leading women.

Wiig has gone on to appear in films such as The Martian, Despicable Me 2 and Darren Aronofsky's upcoming horror film with Jennifer Lawrence.

Melissa McCarthy's career also sky-rocketed after her part in the movie, going on to star in films such as The Heat, Spy and Ghostbusters, while Rose Byrne bagged roles in Bad Neighbours, X-Men: First Class and Annie.

As for Ellie Kemper?

Well she's killing as the titular protagonist in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which returns for its third season later this year.

Go girls!
