Universal Pictures allegedly sets their eyes on a younger actress for "Wanted 2". After Angelina Jolie dropped out of the project, the studio and director Timur Bekmambetov have been reported expressing interest to get Kristen Stewart to star opposite James McAvoy in "Wanted (2008)" sequel.

Sources tell E! Online the 20-year-old beauty could fill the lead role left by Jolie, playing a character of young, ass-kicking assassin in the Fraternity. An insider additionally informs that Bekmambetov has approached Stewart and met her at least once.

Since the report is still considered as a rumor, another source says the project will likely not see collaboration between Stewart and McAvoy. However, E! Online insists it remains a slim possibility. Meanwhile, representative for Stewart has not responded to request for comment on the news.

"Wanted 2" will reportedly follow McAvoy's Wesley being hunted by other assassins from around the world. Mark Millar, co-creator for "Wanted" comic book, has also dished on the possible storyline for the film, saying it will introduce other fraternities of assassins from around the world.

Having wrapped "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" which will be released on June 30, Kristen Stewart is expected to reprise her role as Bella Swan in the latest installment, "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn". However, nothing has been set in stone for the upcoming project, except that Melissa Rosenberg is writing the script.

I MUST CONFESS, I THINK KRISTEN STEWART IS ATTRACTIVE IN A PECULIAR WAY,TO REPLACE JOLIE AS THE LEAD LADY IN THE WANTED SEQUEL?...YES, SHE CAN DO IT.FOR ONE, SHE HAD DONE QUITE A FEW GOOD INDIE FLICKS (EXCLUDING THE TWILIGHT MOVIES, WHICH DESTROYED ANYTHING BADASS ABOUT VAMPIRES AND WEREWOLVES, IF SHE WEREN'T IN THOSE MOVIES I WOULD'VE GONE ON A MURDERING RAMPAGE)AND SECOND I THINK SHE IS A GOOD CHARACTER ACTOR, THIRD I THINK HER AND MCAVOY WOULD MAKE A BELIEVEABLE ONSCREEN COUPLE (FUCK YOU RPATZ)!!!

UTTER BS FOR SURE. KRISTEN STEWART CANNOT, REPEAT, CANNOT ACT PERIOD. THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE GO TO SEE THESE MOVIES IS TO SEE EDWARD AND THAT'S IT. IF ROBERT PATTINSON WAS NOT IN THE MOVIE, IT WOULD BOMB. NO INTEREST IN STEWART - SHE IS OH SO BORING WITH ZIP PERSONALITY. BIG MISTAKE IN CASTING HER AS BELLA.

You can't be serious. Wanted is a serious action movie not a romantic or horror movie. Its not Kristen time and place.

I love Kristen but she is just not mature enough for the role. You can't mess around with action movie its will be too risky for her to take that role it might affect her reputation as a good actress. Wanted has too much action and will need a serious, mature and well experienced action star on it. Kristen is just too young and not yet her time.

Worsting casting rumor EVER unless they want the assassin to mumble her lines and bite her lip the whole time. They shouldn't even bother making Wanted 2. No one will see it if Angelina, or at least an actress who can believably take over Angelina's spot as lead female, is in the film.
