Kristen Stewart Talks About Replacing Angelina Jolie in Wanted 2
Posted 06.18.10 by Ryan
Momentum on Wanted 2 got a serious bump on the nose when Angelina Jolie decided to ditch the sequel to 2008's runaway hit Wanted, which earned $341 million in worldwide box office. Wanted creator Mark Millar felt that the sequel would continue without Jolie, and in April, reports surfaced that Kristen Stewart would replace Jolie, with director Timur Bekmambetov reportedly meeting with Stewart at least once. MTV asked Stewart about Wanted 2, and the Twilight actress finally spoke out about the rumor.
It's weird to answer questions like this. The only two projects that I am confirmed in now are On The Road and [The Twilight Saga:] Breaking Dawn.
Stewart admitted that the idea of being in an action movie definitely appeals to her.
Yes, definitely — as long as it was good. Wanted was a great movie. James McAvoy makes that movie different from most other action movies because he's a real guy — you're so with him. I feel like most action movies don't have that. So if it had that, definitely. But I wouldn't just want to be in a mindless blow-up movie. I'm not into it.
So, we'll call this a...maybe?
