SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen the movie Wanted and you don’t want the film ruined for you, navigate away from this page right now!
Okay, now that I’ve got that out of the way, a sequel to the film is in the works and there’s talk that Angelina Jolie will reprise her role. Uhhhh… yeah, I realize that they had a lame ass way of helping people heal in the first movie but she was shot. In the head. It doesn’t get more final than that and she seemed to want it that way since she would be gone.
So I find it a little interesting that director Timur Bekmanbetov is flapping his gums about how to revive her for Wanted 2. He told MTV: “If you remember from the first film, we have a recovery room with the baths of wax. We know how to do this, but it’s still tough to do, because the bullet is inside her head.”
Why go through the trouble? Why not just have another hot chick slip into the role opposite James McAvoy? Timur says: “there has to be a reason for her to come back… and we know the reason.”
I’m glad someone knows why this would happen (aside from the fact that Jolie attracts the audience) since it basically means that this sequel is going to begin with an implausible resurrection which will probably set the tone for the rest of the movie. Lame.
