Wanted Director Thinks He Can Bring Back Angelina Jolie for Wanted 2
Posted 08.26.09 by Ryan
Russian director Timur Bekmambetov scored a huge hit with the bullet-bending visuals of Wanted, the adaptation of Mark Millar's comic book. With James McAvoy and Terence Stamp returning for the sequel, Bekmambetov would like Angelina Jolie back as well. There's only one small problem — her final scene in Wanted.
"She was kind of ... dead," Bekmambetov told MTV.
Not that death should prohibit a character's return. Not in a comic book movie, anyway. Bekmambetov has a plan for Jolie's return:
If you remember from the first film, we have a recovery room with the baths of wax. We know how to do this, but it's still tough to do, because the bullet is inside her head. But there has to be a reason for her to come back ... and we know the reason. I think we found the reason for her to come back.
Bekmambetov believes they will make Wanted 2 "this winter," though Jolie's return is still far from certain, especially after Jolie insisted her character be killed in Wanted.
In the original, she doesn't kill herself. I actually changed the ending. I said, "If she was to find out she had killed people unjustly and was a part of something that wasn't fair, then she should take her own life.
Bekmambetov better have a good "plan."
