Wanted Wanted is a 2008 action film, very loosely based on the comic book miniseries of the same name by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones. The film is written by Chris Morgan, Michael Brandt, and Derek Haas, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and stars James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, Thomas Kretschmann, Common, Terence Stamp, and Konstantin Khabensky. The storyline follows Wesley Gibson (McAvoy), a frustrated accountant who discovers that he is the son of a professional assassin and decides to join The Fraternity, the secret guild in which his father worked. It strays quite a bit from the comics, but had critical and box office success. A sequel is planned.
