Angelina Wanted Again
Bekmabetov preps bullet-curving sequel

 Yes, we know how she ended up at the end of Wanted (no spoilers here, check it out for yourself) but reports are coming in that wunderkind Russian director Timur Bekmabetov is planning to bring Angelina Jolie back for Wanted 2.

The source of the story is here, but those of you who don't read Russian can click here for an English precis. Shooting is apparently to take place in the US, India and Russia, with official preparation beginning next month. No mention of James McAvoy, but it sounds like there might be sequel hope for Konstantin Khabensky, who played the first film's Exterminator, and also appeared in Bekmabetov's Night Watch and Day Watch.

Wanted was a very loose adaptation of an indie comic by Mark Millar (the comic is about a secret cabal set up to assassinate supervillains, and the film... isn't). There have been mutterings about a sequel since the release of the original. Terence Stamp told MTV that his character, Pekwarsky, was "written for a sequel", and Chris Morgan confirmed that he was writing a screenplay. Millar has even talked about a Part 3.

So whaddya think? Did you feel like you Wanted more?*

*See what we did there?

RE:
I did really like Wanted - it's the kind of mad balls-out action movie they don't make any more. A sequel, though, is stretching things a bit. They'd have to go some way to top that end shoot-out... More

Yeah why not. first one was a bit silly, but i'm quote open to seeing more. Bringing back Jolie is a must. More
