In two WTF moments in film news today, Taylor Swift is in and Kristen Wiig is out… maybe. Swift has been cast the upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Helena Bonham Carter. Tragically, the country singer landed the role of Eponine, while Amanda Seyfried will play Cosette. And this movie was going to be so promising. Dammit.
Meanwhile, Universal is reportedly considering making a Bridesmaids 2 without Kristen Wiig! They do know she wrote the movie with Annie Mumolo, right? But a $288 million worldwide profit for the studio means they’ll want a sequel even though Wiig is adamant: “We aren’t working on that,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “Annie and I aren’t planning a sequel. We are writing something else.”
