Movie Bosses Scrap 'Wanted 2' Following Angelina Jolie's Departure


Angelina Jolie


As Angelina Jolie is said refusing to reprise her role in 'Wanted' sequel, movie bosses prefer shutting down the project to looking for the actress' replacement.

Movie bosses have reportedly scrapped plans for a follow-up to action movie "Wanted (2008)" after Angelina Jolie pulled out of the project. The Hollywood beauty starred as a deadly assassin in the first film, alongside Scottish actor James McAvoy, who recently revealed producers have been working on plans for a sequel.

Jolie wasn't expected to return for a second film as her character appeared to die at the end of the original movie, but new reports suggest the actress was wanted for the follow-up and her decision not to take part has forced producers to scrap the project altogether.

According to New York Magazine's Vulture movie blog, bosses at Universal would rather cancel the sequel than recast Jolie's character. Jolie is said to have turned down the project to star in Alfonso Cuaron's new space thriller "Gravity", about the lone survivor of a space mission who is desperate to return to Earth to see her daughter.
