Mark Millar Says They Almost Have a Good Script for WANTED 2; Sequel to Feature Other Fraternities

The adaptation of Wanted should have failed for a variety of reasons: it was based off Mark Millar’s god-awful comic, James McAvoy had never been tested as a lead in an action movie, and it was director Timur Bekmambetov’s first stateside gig.  But it all managed to come together in a silly, stupid, but fun ride with curved bullets and one of the best line deliveries in Morgan Freeman’s career.

The sequel has been moving slowly ever since the film was a hit at the box office, but even though Angelina Jolie, Bekmambetov, and Universal are all up for a second go-round, Millar says that they’re not quite there yet.  In an interview with IGN, Millar says they almost have a good script and he believes they’ll begin shooting soon.  As for the plot, all he would reveal is that they would be going back to the book to pull out the idea of other fraternities of assassins around the world.  The sequel will pick up immediately after the first film with Wesley [McAvoy] now on the run from the other five fraternities’ assassins after he destroyed the U.S. frat along with its magic quilt.

    I thought the comic was pretty cool. What didn't you like about it? Just curious.

    I'm confused, how will Jolie return for a direct sequel when she put a bullet in her own head at the end of the first?

  • InfiniteMonkey

    That one was a clone or a sister or something like that. You know how Hollywood does it. LOL!

    calling the comic book god-awful made you lose a a lot of points. it is objectively top-notch and you clearly did not read it.

  • Corin Prendiville

    lol, true… so stupid, I don't know why the heck they killed her anyways she should have just killed everyone but herself then her and that other dude could go run off into the sunset and in the sequel they could trash the rest of them.
