It has been quite a few years since the release of Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic “Wanted,” yet potential sequel talk regarding the movie has often swirled around it.
At last report two years ago, Universal was said to be waiting for the right story to come along before proceeding with the sequel. This week, Collider spoke with Bekmambetov himself who revealed that said story is apparently ready and now it’s up to the studio:
“For my part I already have the concept of the new story. I have all the screenwriters and co-producers on board. I’ve seen that some websites have even posted the posters of Wanted 2! I think there are a lot of people waiting for the second part of the story we’ve made in 2008.
Unfortunately, Universal is still thinking about the possible dates of the pre-production start. I know that the movie should be released, but it’s all up to Universal to decide when is it going to happen. The studio is still deciding.”
Said concept would reportedly see the return of major cast members who died in the first film.
