Wanted II – Sequel Plans

wanted-pic-mcavoy-pops-a-blood-vessel
Wanted is far from guaranteed financial success this weekend, but a Wanted sequel is already being written. In fact, screenwriters Derek Haas and Michael Brandt (3:10 To Yuma and the forthcoming A-Team) were hired to start on the job way back in September.

wanted-comic-book-pictureWanted’s source material has been Mark Millar’s 2003 six-issue comic book miniseries of the same name. Millar won’t be writing a second miniseries for the comic, but he says “they’ve asked me how I can develop some of the other stuff from the [existing] book into the sequel.”

The first movie has already departed from the comic book considerably. As Haas explains, the comic was set in “a world where super-villains had rid the world of superheroes. It was sort of a mafia story told against that backdrop… [When we were adapting Wanted 1] as the comic became crazier and crazier, we tried to keep the script grounded.”

One thing we do know is there’ll be much more Terence Stamp in Wanted 2. He plays a rogue agent in the first film, operating outside of the fraternity. It’s a small, enigmatic role, but Stamp’s gone on record that “it’s something that’s written for a sequel”.

Millar boasted on his site this week “We’ll see what box office is like at the weekend, but everyone knows this is going to make a LOT of dough.” There certainly seems to be a great deal of confidence going around.

    Best movie I have seen in a long time. The role really suits James McAvoy and seems to have developed his own skills in the first movie. I think as the character progresses he will too as an actor which is why he should stay close to this title.

    I do think its a shame Jolie was killed off. It’s not like Bond girls as her role was a much more important part of the story and a great screen share with McAvoy. I look forward to seeing a sequel.

    I think this movie should be at least a trilogy. I usually watch a movie i enjoy twice, but i watched wanted 6 times and i still wouldnt mind seeing it again. The f**k you keyboard spelled with barry’s tooth was brilliant, im psyched for the next film

    Wanted was one of the best action movies I’ve seen in a long time, and I agree with Andrew, I’ve seen this move 10+ times and wouldn’t mind seeing it again. As for the second movie, I have an idea. For the sequel, you can set the story on how Fox (Angelina Jolie) was brought into the Fraternity, and secretly has been intertwined in life (without knowing it) with Wesley (James McAvoy). This idea eliminates the problem of “not having Jolie in the movie because she was killed off in it, but was amazing never-the-less”, AND shows an interesting window of Fox’s history. She IS the ONLY woman mentioned in the Fraternity, AND is the second in command. Anyway, I loved Wanted and will no doubt watch the sequel. That was just a suggestion. :)

    Wanted was the Bomb!! It has to be one of the best movies I’ve ever seen!!!! How great is it when morgan freeman says mother f**ker and f**k? so great! and the action scenes are amazing!! I can’t get enough of it. I watched it 4 times in 2 days. Making it a trilogy would be amazing if they keep the action on top form and curving bullets!

    Wanted is just a great movie and I could name a plethera of reasons why. And as a movie fan I can’t wait for a sequel. But I can’t help but notice that the relationship between James Mcavoy’s character and his Father’s character in the movie was very simalar to the relationship between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back. Notice in Wanted he says “You are my son” instead of “I am your father.” The differance is that in Wanted James Mcavoy was with the bad guys all along and didn’t know it. It would be like Luke being on the Dark Side then finding out Obi-Wan is his father.

    Wanted was one of the best action film I had seen in a very long time. I was hesitant about watching it, but once I finally sat down to watch the movie i could not move. It was action packed and intense throughout the entire movie. I also hope and wish for an earlier release date, maybe summer of 2010. Also, I think Angelina Jolie would be making a big mistake not signing on for the sequel.

    how would Angelina jolie come back for a second movie she took a built to the head so its highly unlikely she will return in a second wanted movie if there is one at all
