It looks like a sequel to Wanted sequel could be on the cards.
Hollywood.com spoke to the film’s co-writer Derek Haas, who said that he and Michael Brandt are finishing up their second draft of the script for a new movie.
Haas said: “We got that call that you always love as a screenwriter. ‘Can you guys please come back?’ We loved the world. That experience was great. We said, ‘Well here’s what we want to do with the sequel.’ And they said, ‘Okay.’”
He said that the new movie will pick up the story four years after the first one.
“It’s ‘Where is Wesley four years after the events of the first movie?’” he continued. “The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley [James McAvoy] is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She’s got a sh**ty life. He’s sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world.”
He also confirmed that Angelina Jolie will not be returning.
Wanted was released in June 2008 and earned $341.4 million worldwide at the Box Office.
