Timur Bekmambetov talks Wanted sequel
It would appear that things are falling into place on the long-rumoured sequel to Wanted, with Timur Bekmambetov promising a "shocking" script...
While promoting Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Timur Bekmambetov has revealed that things seem to be falling into place for the sequel to 2008's Wanted – in a nutshell, it seems that he finally has a story for the long-rumoured picture.
"An unbelievable thing happened three weeks ago, because we stopped, we didn't know what to do for three or four years," the producer and director said. "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."
Obviously we hope he means shocking in a good way, as despite being ridiculous at times, Wanted was an entertaining watch.
