Becky Johnston To Rewrite SALT Sequel Script?
Salt sequel is apparently not dead. And ok, we’re not here to report that Angelina Jolie will be back as that CIA officer, or to share some huge story details for the follow-up to the 2010 spy movie, but still – in case you liked this movie, I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear that Columbia Pictures is in some serious talks with Becky Johnston to rewrite the script for the (obviously upcoming) sequel.
Becky Johnston is probably best known for The Prince of Tides, or maybe even better – for Brad Pitt‘s 1997 movie Seven Years in Tibet.
I have no idea if Johnston is the perfect name for Salt story, but I will also remind you that Columbia Pictures previously hired Kurt Wimmer (aka the man who wrote the script for the original movie) to pen a sequel as well, but (un)fortunately – Jolie wasn’t thrilled with it. Or something like that.
Anyway, let us also remind that Salt, directed by Phillip Noyce, starred Jolie as A CIA agent who goes on the run after a defector accuses her of being a Russian spy.
The movie grossed $293.5 million worldwide, which definitely means only one thing – there’s still a lot of potential in this story.
Or, maybe not?
Let us know what you think, and stay tuned for more updates!
