Though neither actor James McAvoy nor creator Mark Millar sounded too confident about the possibility of a sequel being made to Wanted in interviews conducted last month and eight months ago, respectively, producer Jim Lemley recently told MTV that Wanted 2 is not dead.
Speaking from the set of his new movie, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Lemley said that he and producing partner and director Timur Bekmambetov "still talk sometimes" about Wanted 2 and that, even though Angelina Jolie's character died at the end of the Wanted and the superstar actress is not interested in seeing her character resurrected, the "story has such a big idea behind it that it can also go on without her." In addition to returning to the world of Wanted, Lemley said that he and Bekmambetov would also like to revisit the post-apocalyptic animated world of 9 in a sequel.
