Wanted Sequel Is A Go, Writers On Board
The Wrap report that the writing duo from Timur Bekmambetov's first Wanted have been hired to pen a sequel. We also get a very rough idea of the story the sequel will follow..
It seems a sequel to the loose adaptation of Mark Millar's controversial comic series is definitely in the works as the original movie's screenwriters are on board.

 

From The Wrap..


The studio has hired Michael Brandt and Derek Haas to write "Wanted 2," Haas told TheWrap Tuesday -- and tweeted.

"We just always loved the 'Wanted' world and loved working with Universal and (director) Timur (Bekmambetov) on the first one, so we're excited."

"Wanted 2" is "going to take off after the events of what just happened," Haas said. "Pick up Wesley a few years later and go back in for another round."


No word on whether the original cast or director will return. Hass says that while he would love to work with Bekmambatov again, he is "a busy guy". James McAvoy played Wesley in the first movie which bore almost no relation beyond character names and basic premise to the Mark Millar comic of the same name. Angelina Jolie played the female lead and was rumored to be sought by Universal to return for the sequel despite literally having her head blown off at the end of the first movie.

Wanted 2 Writers Expect Director Timur Bekmambetov To Return To Helm Sequel!
Writers Michael Brandt and Derek Haas talk briefly about where we might see lead character Wesley (originally played by X-Men: First Class star James McAvoy) go in the sequel as well as why they expect Timur Bekmambetov to return...
 

While many fans of the comic didn't take too kindly to the 2008 adaptation of Mark Millar's Wanted (it took a fair few liberties with the source material) it WAS a financial success, and we recently heard that a sequel would be going ahead. So, with the script currently being worked on, what of director Timur Bekmambetov? "Hopefully, Timur will come back on to direct," co-screenwriter Michael Brandt told Coming Soon in a recent interview. "You write it with Timur's sensibility and try to give him the most leeway to do what he does really well."

"We're just writing the script right now. We're hoping that it's going to be Timur directing," added writing partner, Derek Haas. "I think Michael and I are going to strong-arm him into Universal and make him do it. We're writing and basically picking Wesley up a few years after the events of the first movie and throwing him back into that world."

New Female Character To Be Introduced In WANTED 2

Speaking with Hollywood.com while promoting his new novel The Right Hand, Wanted co-writer Derek Haas offers an update on the upcoming sequel to the Mark Millar adaptation. He and Michael Brandt are readying to send a second draft of the script to Universal Pictures. Haas talks about how he and Brandt were originally hired to write the Wanted sequel, and how they left the project after creative differences between them and the studio (and director Timur Bekmambetov). But most interestingly, Haas dropped a new piece of info on the sequel's story. It was previously said that James McAvoy's Wesley Gibson would return, though Angelina Jolie's Fox (unsurprisingly) would not. According to Haas, the film will introduce a new female character to team up with Gibson.

"The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley [James McAvoy] is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She's got a sh**ty life. He's sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world."
