Timur Bekmabetov talked to Russian news site RIA Novosti and announced that not only is a sequel to Wanted planned, but that “in the late autumn or winter shooting will be performed. The shooting will take place in America, India and Russia.”
Well that’s super because I actually very much enjoyed the original Wanted a great fucking deal more than I did it’s piece of shit comic counterpart. Suck it up comic fans, Mark Millar’s story was nothing but nhilistic exploitation. It’s hard to care for a story that glorifies rape. The movie had really well done action, bothered to have a dark sense of humour and a hero that’s actually likable. Sure, the Loom of Fate was, ahem, less than inspiring, but it worked if you didn’t think about it too much.
But the real head scratcher of the interview is that Angelina Jolie will indeed be back for the sequel. Apparently he and the writers found a way to bring her back. What, as a ghost or a zombie? A flashback sequence perhaps? But if they somehow tell me she survived a bullet flying around a room and blowing her brains out, then fuck that. Fuck that thoroughly.
And God forbid we’re introduced to Jolie’s identically hot twin sister.
