    According to Russian news source, rian.ru; the famous film director will begin preparation for part two of last year's summer blockbuster this July.

    Bekmambetov cites that film preparation will begin in late Autumn and through the winter, and that "shooting will take place in the United States, India, and Russia."

    Bekmambetov promises to "resurrect Angelina Jolie's character, "Fox" who perished at the end of the first film, and he has already begun toying with the idea of bringing back Kostya Khabenkiy's character, "The Exterminator."

    What do you guys think? I personally thoroughly enjoyed the first "Wanted" film, but I am a little bit hesitant about the resurrection of Fox's character. Typically, I have always felt that once a character dies in the first film, it's hard to convince the fans that resurrecting them in the second film is a good idea. I am however looking forward to a sequel. Let's be honest, Angelina Jolie is hot, (even in my book!) and her onscreen chemistry with James McAvoy was pretty awesome, too. I'm looking forward to hearing more about the film; are you?

    Let me get this straight.... Another film where people just get shot and there's crazy special effects for 2 hours with minimal plot?

    I have no need for movies "based on" stories but having nothing in common with them.

    Also, looms that predict the future.  Really.  Why would anyone want a sequel to that pile of crap?

    If they do a Sequel shouldn't they just have the main star James McAvoy in it with a new cast that would make sense and if they did it that way I would be real excited to see it. But there is no reason to bring Angelina Jolia back into this movie series unless its a prequel.

    @inferiorego: I thought Wanted's plot was pretty ambitious for a shoot em up flick?

    I think it'd be great to see her in the next one, just dont pull a Chow Yun Fat in A Better Tomorrow 2 where its all "OH, THIS IS HER TWIN SISTER, DAWG!" "OH WERD?!"

    I dug Wanted quite a bit, and I really didn't think I would. I'm normally turned off by the performances of any female lead in an action movie because they usually come off as linear and mad pretentious. You get either A) the take-no-crap chick or B) the take no crap chick who cant do anything and both usually turn out to be pretty unrelatable and annoying because for some reason very few people understand how to make a real strong female lead and need to enter the Dojo of Whedon.

    But Angelina Jolie really made me feel like she could just beat the crap out of me in Wanted and if I ever saw her in public I'd walk on the other side of the street and clutch my wallet. And thats saying quite a smidge.

    I agree, but at times it got a little too convoluted for itself.... However, I thought the movie was a ridiculous amount of fun.

    I don't think they should do a sequel, the first one seemed like a one trick pony, but apparently people love that one trick.

    I loved this movie and the idea of a sequel is badass. Fox returning from the dead isn't that big of deal in my opinion. Especially when you consider the level of marksmanship and bullet curving ability displayed. She could have very easily faked her own death or simply been grazed by her own bullet. Unlike Morgan Freeman's character who had the back of his head blown out the front, we only see a very blurred image of Fox being shot and very little damage and blood for having been struck in the head. Its also possible (like others have stated) that part two will actually be a prequel, which is fine. I'd like to see the tale of Wesley's old man defecting and turning on the Fraternity like a boss. I'll be waiting patiently for this film.

    Funny that this was posted, I just watched it for the first time last night. I really enjoyed it. Awesome movie and would like to see a sequal.. even though, sequals tend to ruin the movie but heck, i'd see it... I guess we have to wait and see.

    The first movie was awful. People have said the comic is better but if you want my opinion, the comic could have been a blank piece of paper and had been infinitely better than the movie. 


    A loom of fate? Come on everyone, don't let hollywood get away that easy. If you think I'm crazy just read the abridged script to open your eyes: http://www.the-editing-room.com/wanted.html.
