Wanted Sequel Still Possible But Jolie’s Out

“Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov says that in spite of his busy schedule, he still intends to persevere with a follow-up to his 2008 action-packed comic book adaptation.

Talking with MTV News on the set of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, Bekmambetov says “We still talk sometimes about ‘Wanted 2.’ We want to try and continue that story because it’s a very interesting one for us.”

A few months ago Angelina Jolie made it pretty clear that her character won’t be returning for a sequel as had been rumoured. Bekmambetov doesn’t seem phased by that, saying “The reality is we love [Jolie] and we’d love to do it with her, but also that story has such a big idea behind it that it can also go on without her.”
