Screenwriter Chris Morgan, who penned Wanted, has confirmed to MTV that he will reprise those duties for the planned sequel to this summer's hit.
Morgan said he's hashing out the story for Wanted 2 with director Timur Bekmambetov. The biggest problem - Wanted spoiler warning if you haven't seen the original! - in crafting a follow-up is that so many characters died in the original.
"That is the challenge here," said Morgan, "but the point is to continue the journey that Wes [Gibson, played by James McAvoy] started in the first film. Wherever he ended up at the end of the film, now it's time to move him forward."
James McAvoy, and many large guns, will be back for a Wanted sequel.
