New Female Character To Be Introduced In WANTED 2
Wanted co-writer Derek Haas, who is currently working on the script for the sequel, reveals that a new female character will be introduced alongside James McAvoy's Wesley Gibson. Read on for further details.
Speaking with Hollywood.com while promoting his new novel The Right Hand, Wanted co-writer Derek Haas offers an update on the upcoming sequel to the Mark Millar adaptation. He and Michael Brandt are readying to send a second draft of the script to Universal Pictures. Haas talks about how he and Brandt were originally hired to write the Wanted sequel, and how they left the project after creative differences between them and the studio (and director Timur Bekmambetov). But most interestingly, Haas dropped a new piece of info on the sequel's story. It was previously said that James McAvoy's Wesley Gibson would return, though Angelina Jolie's Fox (unsurprisingly) would not. According to Haas, the film will introduce a new female character to team up with Gibson.
"The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley [James McAvoy] is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She's got a sh**ty life. He's sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world."
