Wanted, always ripe for a sequel, will be finally getting one as news has broke that the film’s original screenwriters have been hired to pen the follow-up.
Derek Haas and Michael Brandt have been tapped by Universal to get to work on the sequel to Wanted, the action film that starred Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy.
The first Wanted arrived in 2008 and was based on the wildly popular comic by J.H. Jones and Mark Millar. It followed a bored with his life office drone (McAvoy) who learns that his father was a member of a group of elite assassins possessing beyond human abilities.
After earning $341 million at the box office upon its release, we are just wondering: What took so long to get the sequel green lit?!
