Wanted Sequel Moves Ahead

by at . Comments

According to Variety, Universal Pictures has resigned Wanted Marc Platt for five years. And one of the producer's first missions?

To get a Wanted sequel up and running.

Platt acknowledged that the creative team is still working on the challenge of continuing the movie's story, considering most of the principal characters - including Angelina Jolie - ended the original in no position for an encore.

However, the film was designed as a potential franchise - and it is still performing strongly, having grossed $192.6 million worldwide.

"The writers are at work already, and those creative discussions are taking place," said Platt about the Wanted sequel.

Wanted Quotes

Sloan: It a choice, Wesley, that each of us must face: to remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, coasting through a miserable existence, like sheep herded by fate, or you can take control of your own destiny and join us, releasing the caged wolf you have inside. Our purpose is to maintain stability in an unstable world - kill one, save a thousand. Within the fabric of this world, every life hangs by a thread. We are that thread - a fraternity of assassins, weapons of fate. This is the decision that lies before you know: the sheep, or the wolf. The choice is yours.

Welcome... to the Fraternity. This gun you're holding belonged to your father, he could conduct a symphony orchestra with it.
