Sony is moving forward with the sequel to Salt

06.06.2011

Angelina Jolie should be happy. She welcomed a sequel for SALT and now Sony is moving forward with the project.

Kurt Wimmer has already started writing the script. The first film had Evelyn Salt (Jolie) running for her life after being outed as a Russian spy. The ending even set its self up for a sequel.

Phillip Noyce declined to do another film and Jolie said she would only be back if everything came together right. This is what the actress said last year on the possibility of a sequel during the London premiere of the film, "I hope so, for everybody — if they want to see more of Salt. I love doing action. I love to punch things, jump off things and shoot, so I'm lucky I got the job."

The question is: do movie fans want it? The mainstream audience seemed to enjoy it but the revenue wasn't as big here in the States as it was overseas. Here the film made $118 million while internationally it made $300 million.

Would you be willing to see the SALT sequel?

International gross trends higher than domestic on tentpole films these days, so i dont know why you make it seem negative that it grossed more overseas. Jolie is a popular international figure, the foreign gross will always be higher, especially if its in 3D, which it most likely will be.

418mm WW is not too shabby. Easy greenlight decision

I hear the sequel will have Salt finding out who keeps hacking Sony's data systems and kicking their ass.

I thought that Salt was one of the mostly poorly executed films I'd seen in a while. Plot holes abound and the rampant abuse of my typically easy to please suspension of disbelief. The whole thing felt wrong. It made Die Hard 4 acceptable and that is completely offensive.

This isn't a completely horrible idea, but it just goes to show that the boys upstairs will peddle anything, regardless if anyone gives a shit

I watched this film completely sober and still have no idea what the plot is. This is unnecessary, I don't give a shit about any of the characters.

It wasn't the greatest movie, but it was pretty good. I'm surprised no one seems to know where a sequel would go. I was a little surprised with where the story stopped. Seemed open-ended with a sequel in mind already to me.

I don't see how anyone could say that there isn't room for a sequel. The movie ends completely open ended and unfinished.

Ehhhh...

I didn't think Salt was all that great but it was watchable. My biggest grip with the film was Angelina Jolie kicking ass. I mean she weighs a buck five maybe a buck ten and she was knocking dudes out left and right? What EVER!!! In any case it was an ok time and if they do a sequel I hope they make it smarter cause Salt was dumb.

Phillip Noyce was the only great part of Salt to begin with. He did something kind of novel and featured action scenes where you could actually see what was going on. Unless if they get someone like Martin Campbell or another old school action director, I have no interest in a sequel.

The first movie was good enough. I'd definitely be intrigued as to what direction they'll take the story.

I would welcome a sequel. The first wasn't anything special but it was fun for what it was. Plus how can you pass up Angelina Jolie running around kicking some ass for two hours.
