The hiring of “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie” scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos to pen the sequel to 2008’s violent actioneer “Wanted” surprised a few people last week.
Now the comic’s creator and film producer Mark Millar has said on his official site that the scribe “did a GREAT action script recently (on an unproduced movie) and that’s what got him this gig.”
Millar adds that “‘Wanted 2’ is being made in a very tight circle at the moment. I know who’s in it and after doing 342 million at the box office we have [serious] money to spend on everything from cast to crew to script.”
Director Timur Bekmambetov and star James McAvoy are expected to return for the upcoming film.
