Jolie Back For Wanted 2?
Bekmambetov wants her back

26 August 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: MTV

submit to reddit

Angelina Jolie was so freakin' cool in Wanted that it's hard to imagine a sequel without her, but given that *SPOILER* she died at the end of the first one *END SPOILER*, that might seem difficult. Well, not for director Timur Bekmambetov, who told MTV that he's come up with a way to bring her character, Fox, back for the sequel. 

""If you remember from the first film, we have a recovery room with the baths of wax," Bekmambetov told MTV. "We know how to do this, but it's still tough to do, because the bullet is inside her head. But there has to be a reason for her to come back... and we know the reason. I think we found the reason for her to come back."

We can only hope that Bekmambetov's reason is as batshit-crazy as his reasons for characters doing things normally are (Loom of Fate, Chalk of Destiny, Badger of Catastrophe, whatever), but even if it's a simple "but she was ace!" we're willing to hear it. Head on over to MTV for the rest of the story.

Ha Ha! Most pointless spoiler warning ever!!
1: Try reading *SPOILER* and *END SPOILER* without glimpsing 'died' 2: "...because the bullet is inside her head" 3: This comments section. Anyway if you haven't seen Wanted yet rent it now, it's lots of fun. And even though you now know the ending, you also know it's not really the ending. Yeah, and bring Angelina back. Or don't, as long as the sequel's as mental as the first I'll be there. More

RE: Good Idea!
Has anyone read the comic? To say it was wildly different to the film is an understatement. The pity is that the original story could have been a great movie.. More

Good Idea!
Like the article says, in a movie with Loom's of Fate, bending bullets and revitaling baths (yet with no supernatural/sci-fi reasoning offered) You don't really need a script of Shakespearean magnitude to bring Jolie back from the dead do you? Here's hoping for another batshit stupid and immensley fun film as the first! More

i beg to differ.....
if you rewatch the film, you never actually see her get hit with a bullet, the camera moves just before it hits her and you just see her fall to the ground in the background and presume she's dead. she should come back though as she gave me a 'special feeling downstairs'....... More

No Jolie
No, Jolie should come back because she was shit, if anything they should bring back Konstantin Khabenskiy, now he was awesome, plus he died way too soon on in the film. More
