Sequel Talk for Timur Bekmambetov's 'Wanted'


Sequel Talk for Timur Bekmambetov's 'Wanted'


Before the action movie based on Mark Millar's graphic novel series and directed by Timur Bekmambetov hits the silver screen, the filmmakers have discussed about its possible sequel.

Whether the action sci-fi flick "Wanted (2008)" is successful or not in collecting piles of gold can't be made sure of at least until it hits the big screen next Friday, June 27. Yet, it is said that the filmmakers behind the graphic novel's adaptation are already talking about the follow-up movie to this Timur Bekmambetov-directed film.

Revealing the filmmakers' intention, one of the actors to be featured in "Wanted", Terence Stamp, sparked the speculation when he talked about the Universal Pictures' action-packed movie. While explaining about the part he is portraying, the Academy Award-nominated actor who is also expected to be seen in Steve Carell's "Get Smart" and Jim Carrey's "Yes Man" hinted about the possible sequel. "I play a character who's called Pekwarsky," explained the 69-year-old. "He's an enigmatic character who doesn't feature a lot in the first one, but it's something that's written for a sequel."

Stamp's remark suggesting on the possibility of a sequel posted a big question because the "Wanted" comic books seem to be made resembling a self-contained story. It means that the story may only open to be developed for a single film unlike the Marvel's fictional superheroes, like Batman and Spider-Man, who have various kinds of possible story plots.

Putting together a strong cast that is led by James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman, "Wanted" is expected to present an action movie like none before with high octane action sequences and explosive scenes. The story resolves on a young but loser man by the name of Wesley Gibson. Whatever he does doesn't seem to please everyone around him, but everything is about to change for the 25-year-old. When his estranged father is murdered, he is recruited by a secret organization, the Fraternity, and is turned to be a deadly assassin for a reason he doesn't know of.
