Wanted Getting a Sequel

by at . Comments

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.

Angelia Jolie in Wanted

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?!

Wanted Quotes

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


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.
