It’s rare these days that a movie makes a lot of money and doesn’t a sequel. Especially if that movie is a comic book adaptation.
Wanted is the one clear exception. The movie premiered in 2008, and was by all definitions a hit, yet a sequel (though rumored) never occurred.
Coming Soon chatted with Marc Platt, who produced Wanted, and asked about whether a sequel is close to fruition.
“We have a script that’s getting pretty good,” Platt explained. “To do a sequel when it wasn’t really set up for a sequel–one of our main characters dies in it. You don’t want to just retread a similar story, but when we get the script to a certain bar, there will be a sequel. It’s taken a while because it’s challenging, as I said, because we lost a main, main character, so where that James McAvoy character goes now… we have good ideas though. It’s coming along.”
That sounds promising! What do you think? Let us know below!
