Several More Join Wiig’s “Bridesmaids”

Matt Lucas (“Little Britain”), Ellie Kemper (“The Office”), Jill Clayburgh (“Dirty Sexy Money”), Melissa McCarthy (“The Back-up Plan”) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Reno 911!”) have all joined the cast of the Judd Apatow-produced comedy “Bridesmaids” at Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Kristen Wiig stars as a maid of honor begrudgingly competing with snobby, rich bridesmaids at every pre-wedding event before the nuptials of her best friend (Maya Rudolph). Chris O’Dowd and Rose Byrne also star.

Paul Feig (TV’ s “Arrested Development,” “Nurse Jackie”) directs from a script by Wiig and Annie Mumolo. The project is scheduled to hit theatres on May 12th 2011.
