It looks like Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov has finally cracked the story he wants to tell for Wanted 2. He doesn't give away any story details but he does say that it will be shocking, and that it has a great twist. Here's what he said in an interview with The Playlist,
An unbelievable thing happened three weeks ago. Because we stopped, we didn't know what to do for three or four years. Three weeks ago I came up with a great idea and I pitched this idea and everybody fell in love with it. And now I think we're on track. Right now the writer is working on the script, and it will be shocking.
He then goes on to reveal that the people who died in the first film won't be back for the sequel. I assume that means Angelina Jolie's character as well.
It's a continuation of the story, with Wesley Gibson. Other people are dead, you know, we can't bring them back. The story is the same character, same mythology, but it's got a great twist.
I assume at this point they will completely stray away from the comic book source, and build their own story. I thought the first film was great, and I'm excited to see the story continue. Where would you like to see the story go from where it left off?
