Back in 2008, comic book adaptation Wanted was a runaway success, earning an unexpected $341 million worldwide. Soon after, reports pointed to a Wanted trilogy, with various opinions offered about what to do about Angelina Jolie's character, Fox, who sadly didn't survive the original movie. Director Timur Bekmambetov thought he could bring Fox back from the dead, but Jolie didn't want to return, which put the sequel on hold. Comic book co-creator Mark Millar suggested moving on without Jolie, which is where the sequel essentially stood until Universal brought in Wanted screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Haas to pen a sequel last September.
Since then, there's been no news of a potential Wanted 2, perhaps because the studio or Bekmambetov (or both) weren't happy with the direction of the sequel's story. However, in a recent interview with The Playlist, Bekmambetov explained that he finally figured out what he wanted to do next. what's in store with Wanted 2? >> Posted 06.18.12 by Ryan
