‘Wanted 2’ Brings Back Original Writers

Ever since the first film hit, a sequel to the rather entertaining, albeit wholly vapid, actioner Wanted has been in the works. However, despite various different teams getting their chance to work on the film, it appears as though it will be the original duo who get the final stab at it.

THR is reporting that Derek Haas and Michael Brandt have been brought back to work on the upcoming film for Universal, and will be working on a new script, based on one penned back in 2009 by writer Evan Spiliotopoulos.

Must Watch: The Onion Interviews 5-Year-Old Writer Of ‘Fast Five’
  |  @   |  

A new video from The Onion has been spreading around the ‘net like wildfire the past couple of days, and for good reason.

The video plays as a parody of The Today Show, called Today Now!, where the two hosts interview the screenwriter behind the latest installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise, Fast Five. The catch is that the writer, Chris Morgan, is only 5 years old, making for quite the hilarious little clip.

Morgan shares his approach to writing the script and how he wanted to see it come to life, as well as if we’ll see any sequels and just how many are planned. He even touches on his work on the Angelina Jolie flick, Wanted!

You can see the video now by heading on below.

UPDATED! ‘Wanted 2’ Killed Off After Angelina Jolie Walks Away To Star In Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Gravity’
  |  @   |  

UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly has a follow-up to this story. Jolie’s people have revealed that she has also passed on Gravity as well and that WB still hasn’t even confirmed whether that movie is set up with them. Could be all smoke and mirrors, but that’s the update!

Many people have expected a sequel to Timur Bekmambetov‘s assassin-fest, Wanted, for a while now, but sadly, it looks as though this will not be happening.

Vulture is reporting that star Angelina Jolie has decided to walk away from Wanted 2 in order to do another film called Gravity, which is directed by the great Alfonso Cuarón. Jolie was attached to star in both films for Universal, but they decided to drop Gravity, which was then picked up by Warner Brothers. This is where Jolie, clearly looking for the more challenging, awards-possible role, followed it and left Wanted 2 in the dust and Universal deciding to scrap the project completely.

This may anger fans of Wanted who really hoped to see a sequel, but in all honestly, if you have to choose between the two just knowing the basic premise and the director, it’s a crystal clear decision to make.
