WANTED 2 screenwriter gives some details

Posted on October 24, 2012 at 7:38 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

Derek Haas who had previously co-written the original Wanted, had been working on the sequel, only for the project to stall. He has recently been been brought back on board and is working on a script with writing partner Michael Brandt.  Haas confirmed that Angelina Jolie will not be returning, but that there will be a new female protagonist to pick up the slack.

“The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She’s got a shitty life. He’s sort of in the Fox role [Jolie’s part in the first film]. This new girl is brought into the world.”

It’s always tricky when you swap perspective characters, but the first Wanted was so much fun that I will definitely give Wanted 2 the benefit of the doubt.
