Scribes Michael Brandt and Derek Haas will be returning for Wanted 2

09.28.2011

WANTED, a fun enough film that sure as shit didn't need or deserve a sequel, will be getting one anyway! And returning to pen it will be original writers Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (3:10 TO YUMA, 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS).

TheWrap is confirming this latest news following a tweet posted yesterday by Haas saying that Universal had hired both him and Brandt for the sequel to 2008's surprise moneymaker ($341 million worldwide gross off a reportedly $75 million budget). Haas reveals that WANTED 2 would "take off after the events of what just happened. Pick up Wesley a few years later and go back in for another round."

That of course goes contrary to reports from last year when it was said that the film was trying to be written as an origin story for Angelina Jolie's character (she and her bare butt being among the prime reasons for the first film's success afterall). However, all that wound up falling apart when Jolie voiced her (understandable) disinterest in making a sequel.

I enjoyed it enough to want to see a sequel. Although I hate the idea of them (writer above included) trying to bring back Jolie. Dead is dead. Bring in a new female character instead.

The first one was an absolute steaming pile of shite and I never understood the appeal. It was like Brandt/Haas just read the first two issues of the comic and then wrote whatever the fuck they wanted after that.
In a perfect world, they would relaunch this with a picture-perfect version of the comic that actually follows the proper story.
Oh well, I guess it's another shit movie that Mark Millar can use to chat himself up as usual.
