“We wrote the script in six days,” says screenwriter Annie Mumolo of the whirlwind experience she had writing the new Judd Apatow-produced comedy Bridesmaids. The film is about a group of ladies who come together when one of them gets married. Mumolo co-wrote the script with friend and star of the film, Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live, Knocked Up, MacGruber). “We are trained to write very quickly, at high volume,” Mumolo explains. She and Wiig hooked up through The Groundlings, an improv comedy troupe in Los Angeles where trial and error seem to produce the best results.
