Michael and I were just hired by Uni to write WANTED 2.
Following the post, The Wrap caught up with Haas, who said that the film is currently without a director but that the storyline will, “take off after the events of what just happened. Pick up Wesley a few years later and go back in for another round.”
Though unconfirmed, the implication is that James McAvoy will return to the role of Wesley Gibson, an accountant-turned-assassin. The original also starred Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie, but at least the latter does not plan on returning.
“Being dead makes it difficult,” she said last year, “They were [trying to bring me back], but I kind of feel like if I die in a movie, I should die actually… It would just be doing the exact same thing in another movie, so it’s not that interesting to me.”
Check back soon for updates on Wanted 2 as they become available.
