Mark Millar Thinks Wanted 2 Can Still Happen Without Jolie
Though Angelina Jolie has a couple options for new projects coming up, one thing that isn't up in the air is the fact that she's not coming back for Wanted 2. In an interview with STV, Wanted co-creator Mark Millar reveals exactly why she wasn't too interested in coming back (if you've seen the film, you know it's not exactly easy or believable to bring her character Fox back for a sequel), but thinks that it wouldn't be all that hard to move ahead with the sequel without Jolie. However, we're talking about a story that, as Millar puts it, "changes everyday" and will need some re-working to bring in a new character to fill her vacant spot.
As someone who wasn't exactly enthralled with the first Wanted, I don't have too much of an investment in actually seeing this come to fruition. When you have a film that ends the way the first one did, you kind of wish it would just exist as a single entity. However, like Millar says, it makes more sense to bring in a new character to take Jolie's spot with some plot modifications rather than bringing back that original character. Apparently the film is still supposed to shoot this year aiming to release sometime in 2011, so we'll see who steps up for the sequel and if it actually comes to fruition. How many of you out there want a sequel?
