WANTED Screenwriters to Write WANTED 2

Wanted screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, who are also responsible for 2 Fast 2 Furious, 3:10 to Yuma, and the upcoming The Double (which Brandt also directed), have been hired by Universal to write Wanted 2. Haas mentioned the news in a brief tweet earlier today.

At TheWrap, Haas added that "we just always loved the Wanted world and loved working with Universal and [director] Timur [Bekmambetov] on the first one, so we're excited." However, it's unclear if Bekmambetov will return as director.

There was also no mention of whether Angelina Jolie's character will be resurrected for the sequel to the 2008 actioner. About a year or so ago there was widespread speculation that Bella Swan herself, Kristen Stewart, would play the female lead in a proposed Wanted 2. The original's James McAvoy would presumably co-star.

Also in the cast of the original Wanted were Morgan Freeman, Terence Stamp, and Thomas Kretschmann. In addition to Brandt and Haas, Chris Morgan was also credited for the screenplay.
