Updates on Wanted 2

Millar may be busy with the sequel to Kick-Ass 2, but the sequel to another project that was borne from one of his comics, Wanted 2, is also underway, as revealed by screenwriter Derek Haas, who was co-writer for the original film and is once again co-penning the story, this time with help from writing partner Michael Brandt:

“We got that call that you always love as a screenwriter,” says Haas. “’Can you guys please come back?’ We loved the world. That experience was great. We said, ‘Well here’s what we want to do with the sequel.’ And they said, ‘Okay.'”

Unfortunately for fans of Angelina Jolie, the actress will not be returning (especially since her character died in the original film), but that there will be a new female protagonist to pick up the slack:

“The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She’s got a shitty life. He’s sort of in the Fox role [Jolie’s part in the first film]. This new girl is brought into the world.”
