Wanted is now four years old and yet Universal is still working on a sequel. In fact, original co-writer Derek Haas actually went on to comment (via Hollywood.com) about the proposed sequel and how the script has reached second draft stage.
The plan is still for James McAvoy to return, with no sign of Angelia Jolie, due to obvious spoilers from the first film.
I liked the first film a decent amount, but it’s been far too long for me to really care about a sequel at this point. We’ve managed without it for this long, so why even bother?
Here’s a brief snippet of what the sequel would be about:
“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.”
