Timur Bekmambetov has been doing the press rounds for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter lately, and it’s no surprise he’s been asked about a sequel to his 2008 hit Wanted.
It was announced back in the fall that the original Wanted scribes were writing it, but then nothing happened. There really haven’t been any updates since. Now, Bekmambetov does have some info:
“An unbelievable thing happened three weeks ago. Because we stopped, we didn’t know what to do for three or four years. Three weeks ago I came up with a great idea and I pitched this idea and everybody fell in love with it. And now I think we’re on track. Right now the writer is working on the script, and it will be shocking.
“It’s a continuation of the story, with Wesley Gibson. Other people are dead, you know, we can’t bring them back. The story is the same character, same mythology, but it’s got a great twist.”
It seems he is committed to the ending of the first film which…
… killed most of the cast, including the film’s star Angelina Jolie.
What could this “shocking” development be? Any ideas?
