As challenging as it is to write the follow-up movie to "Wanted (2008)", screenwriter Chris Morgan apparently has had ideas in mind for "Wanted 2". Confirming to MTV about his return to the sequel, the writer of "Fast and Furious" hints on where the story will be brought, seeing that most of the characters in the first film are dead.

"That is the challenge here," Morgan points out the difficulty in making the second "Wanted" film before continuing to share his insight saying, "but the point is to continue the journey that Wes started in the first film. Wherever he ended up at the end of the film, now it's time to move him forward." Furthermore, he suggests that the sequel will be "opened up to be more global".

Other than talking about continuing the assassin story, he reveals that creator Mark Millar is in final talks with Universal Pictures for the sequel deal. "As far as I know, the studio is finishing their deal with Mark [Millar], and then we're all going to get together and collaborate," he claimed. "And that's something I'm very excited about." Nevertheless, there is no words yet whether Millar is going to pen the script for the follow-up.

While "Wanted 2" is slated for 2010 release with the possibility of Terence Stamp's character, Pekwarsky, getting a bigger role, the first "Wanted" movie is adapted from Millar's graphic novel and starred by James McAvoy as lead Wesley Gibson, Morgan Freeman as enemy-under-the-blanket Sloan and Angelina Jolie as trained assassin Fox. Since its debut in U.S. theaters on June 27, it has collected $339.1 million worldwide.

YES, IT DID SUCK THAT FOX DIED, BUT SHE WASN'T THE ONLY THING THAT MADE THE MOVIE GOOD. CONTINUE WESLEY'S STORY, HAVE NEW VILLAINS AND HAVE PEKWARSKY TEACH HIM NEW THINGS AND HAVE A NEW LOVE INTEREST. I HEAR KRIS STEWART IS BEING CONSIDERED TO JOLIE'S REPLACEMENT, AND WHY NOT?! SHE'S A GOOD ACTRESS AND CUTE IN A CERTAIN WAY, PLUS I THINK HER AND MCAVOY CAN HAVE GREAT ONSCREEN CHEMISTRY (FUCK YOU RPATZ LOL).

I loved the first movie but think it's a huge mistake to create lame excuses to bring back a dead character. The story should move on. Yes, the character was cool but she by no means "made the movie". The main character is the only one that -needs- to be in the sequel from the first.

I agree that Angelina needs to be brought back into wanted 2. I enjoyed her intense performance in the 1st wanted. Would like to see more of her in the 2nd movie - more stunts with her too.

Come on people Fox is Dead! It would be the cheesiest movie in the world to bring her back! Almost as bad as crank 2 where he falls out of a helicopter but if you give him a new heart and he's okay? If you want a lame storyline watch a uwe boll movie!

They need to bring Angelina Jolie back to it. If they don't, I will not be watching it.

Samdman 10. The thing that's wrong with your idea is that the bullet goes through Fox's head. She's about as dead as she can get.

No they need to let Angelina's character stay dead, instead introduce another Fox from a different Fraternity, and make her actually black like she is in the comic book.

In the sequel, they need to bring back Angelina Jolie who did not die from the bullet to the head as thought to be. The bullet was not strong enough to kill her and temporarily made her unconscious where Terrance Stamp finds her and nurses' her back to health. She has memory problems and Terrance helps her regain her memory and he reforms the Fraternity.
