Paul Feig chats about a Bridesmaids SEQUEL and coming back to direct the movie

Last Christmas landed in cinemas on Friday.

The highly anticipated Christmas movie starring Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and Crazy Rich Asians' Henry Golding tells the story of Kate (Clarke) a woman with an unsuccessful life and relationship with her family.

A life which all took a turn for the worst a year previously when she had a heart transplant and became cold and selfish. However, faith begins to change when Kate meets Tom (Golding), a man who tries to help her be more caring and helpful.

The film also stars Emma Thompson (who co-wrote the flick) and features the music of George Micheal which all in all, ensures you get into that Christmas spirit nice and early.

Speaking about conveying those Christmas feels, director of Last Christmas, Paul Feig said it's all about a good script and setting.

"First of all you have to have a great script, obviously, but then, what are the backdrops and what is the setting like? Again, that's why it was so important for me to shoot in central London and to shoot in the three weeks before Christmas and outside so we get all the natural decorations that are up."

Paul also added that in order to shoot in the busy areas without it being too manic, they would start filming around 3am when the city was mostly quiet.

But the 57-year-old director is a pro when it comes to these things, having directed some epic comedies in the past decade including Bridesmaids, Spy, Ghostbusters and The Heat, Paul knows a thing or two when it comes to making laugh-inducing movies.

Speaking on the subject of Bridesmaids, Paul revealed that he's totally up for creating a sequel if Kristen Wiig writes the script.

"If there was a great story to bring those characters back that was different from the first then sure.

"Work with that group - oh my goodness, so much fun"
