Wanted 2 Shot Down By Jolie?
Plans for Timur Bekmambetov helmed action sequel Wanted 2 may have been shot down in flames according to Vulture Blog. Reports indicate that Angelina Jolie has pulled out of the film so she can star in the space thriller Gravity penned and directed by Alfonso Cuaron.
But weirdly, Universal has decided to pull the plug on the whole project rather than just initiate a re-write. I’m just a bit bewildered as to where Wanted 2 could go anyway – Jolie’s character Fox was left dead at the end of the first movie – wouldn’t a resurrection of sorts be a bit of a cop out?
Actually, I’m more bemused as to why anyone would want to see Wanted 2 anyway, the first was a horrible plotless mess – The Loom Of Fate? Please.
This all seems a bit suspect as there’s been no official announcement and Wanted is if nothing else a bit of a money spinner.
What isn’t surprising is Jolie wanting to star in Gravity written by Curaon (director of the Children of Men and Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban) his son Jonas about the last surviving member of a space mission trying to get home to her daughter.
