Buzz has been building around the Judd Apatow-produced comedy Bridesmaids starring Kristin Wiig since the film has started test screening. Now it looks like the current “work-in-progress” cut of director Paul Feig’s (Freaks and Geeks) film will be screening at this year’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin. Co-written by Wiig, Bridesmaids also stars Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, and Jon Hamm.
The comedy centers on Wiig as the maid-of-honor doing her best to keep a group of wealthy, stuck-up bridesmaids happy during the pre-wedding events leading up to her best friend’s wedding day. The trailer was released early last month and shows definite promise. Bridesmaids opens in wide release on May 13th.
