"Wanted 2" will see James McAvoy's Wesley Gibson trying to wake up Angelina Jolie's character, Fox. During his appearance in "9" panel at San Diego Comic Con 2009, the animation's producer Timur Bekmambetov shared the idea. "James McAvoy will be in the movie, and he will try to wake up our Fox," so claimed the "Wanted (2008)" director as quoted by Sci Fi Wire.

However, when pursued further on where Fox currently resides, the 48-year-old evasively said, "She's in a bath with wax." The wax bath he is referring is the healing bath which is seen used in the first film by the characters to recover from their wounds. Previously, Bekmambetov noted that he is looking for ways to bring Jolie back, stating, "We are working hard to wake her up. She was deadly wounded."

"The bullet's still there (in her head), and now it's a process of how to wake her up," he continued explaining. "There has to be a reason for that. We survive if we have a reason to live. She decided [to shoot herself], it's her decision. And now we are trying to figure out what's the motivation for her to resurrect. It's happening. I think we will make it happen."

As for when the sequel falls into production, writer Mark Millar, as reported by Superhero Hype!, stated that the script has been completed and the filmmakers are going to start shooting in eight weeks time. On the contrary, director Bekmambetov suggested that what is going to be kicked off in 8 weeks is likely to be the pre-production.

"Wanted 2" has director Timur Bekmambetov attached to direct this "Wanted (2008)" sequel. Marc E. Platt and Jim Lemley will serve as producers, while Universal Pictures production executive Jeff Kirschenbaum is to oversee the project. James McAvoy will once again take the role of Wesley Gibson. It allegedly revolves around the international group of assassins from issues 4 and 5 of Mark Millar's graphic novel.

It'd be nice if the long rich and pushing 50 Brangelina would start speaking out about the FACT that their industry is utterly sold-out to the most awesomely genocidal regime in history --across the Pacific. I mean 70 million murders ain't just yesterday's tex-mex platter. ----UH ---HUH

When you put a bullet in someones head they usually die so i think they should leave her dead.

I love this movie. I think though she should come back. I think the best way for her to come back is that Wes should hold up a good surgeon to remove the bullet. But I think they they would just say that the bullet cannot be moved because it would paralyze her or kill her. Anyway, Great movie! Hope to see Wanted 2

I've seen McAvoy masterfully play many different roles. He & "Wanted 2" don't need Jolie. The character was flat. Pick another female star!!!

Would be great if Angelina returns as fox in wanted 2. She spoke hardly at in the first movie, but her screen presence is unmistakable. The other guy - James Mcavoy, was perfect as mr ordinary man contrast to Fox.
