Let’s cut the crap, we’re all interested in Wanted 2
! I hated the first movie actually, but what the hell – at least the cast was pretty cool. Well, here’s an interesting part of this report – it looks that James MacAvoy
will be back as that Wesley guy after all, while Angelina Jolie
is definitely off. Still, Derek Haas
, man who stands behind the original script promises that we’ll have a chance to watch a brand new female character in the whole thing!
So, Haas is now finishing the second draft of the script together with his writing partner Michael Brandt
, and as I mentioned up above, the movie will center on McAvoy’s character Wesley who’s now (and that’s like four years later) recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. Or, as Haas explained:
She’s got a shitty life. He’s sort of in the Fox role, and this new girl is brought into the world.
So, I guess we should all forget about those previous rumors – no prequel this time, and no Angelina Jolie
this time. Or, as Haas explained – the goal is not to undo
anything presented in the original film:
Angelina gets shot in the head and everyone’s like – Oh, are you going to bring back Fox? I said – Did you see the bullet go into her head? And they say – Oh, she can take one of those milk baths! We never wanted to do that movie.
And that’s pretty much all Haas had to say about Wanted 2
. Except, of course, he also added that he’s thrilled to be back in the comic book universe of Wanted 2, where his imagination can really run wild:
The world is a blast. Timur is awesome. You get to go nuts. As writers it’s really freeing to bend physics and natural laws.
