Wanted Sequel Targeted

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Universal plans a sequel for Wanted.

Universal Wanted a sequel so they’re getting one. Director Timur Bekmambetov, scribes Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, and producer Marc Platt are all reprising their respective duties for the now in-development Wanted 2.

According to Variety, “The creative team is still working on the challenge of continuing the story after most of the principal characters — including Angelina Jolie — ended the original in no position for an encore.”

Platt informed the trade, “The writers are at work already, and those creative discussions are taking place.” The filmmakers also reportedly want to bring back James McAvoy as office drone-turned-superassassin Wesley Gibson.

Wanted has so far grossed $192.6 million worldwide.

Wanted US Review

Friday, June 27th, 2008

Wanted is “An action packed, visually arresting comic book movie.” Wanted opens this weekend (June 27th).

Wanted, based on the graphic novel by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, follows twentysomething Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy, doing a convincing job in hiding his Scottish accent) — an office drone who one day discovers that he is actually the son of the world’s greatest assassin. Before this revelation, Wes suffers panic attacks brought on by his overbearing boss at his soul-sucking accounting job and the blatant affair carried on between his girlfriend and best friend.

Wesley is pulled — literally and violently — out of his ho-hum everyday life by Fox (Angelina Jolie), an alluring mystery woman who tells him about his special heritage and then proceeds to save him from Cross (Thomas Kretschmann). After an absurd but exhilarating car chase-shootout sequence, Fox reveals to Wesley that he must take his father’s place in The Fraternity, an ancient league of assassins led by Sloan (Morgan Freeman). The Fraternity metes out justice as determined by the Loom of Destiny (an over-explained plot device built around murderous weavers — yeah, that’s right).

Wes then undergoes an excruciating training regimen (including beatings, guns and knives) until he accepts the Fraternity’s motto: Kill one, save a thousand. He must then carry out a few hits in order to prove his mettle before he is sent after Cross, whom we learn is a rogue member of the Fraternity out to kill his former comrades one by one. Wes gradually learns to enjoy and embrace his newfound vocation, finally feeling empowered after a lifetime of being a nobody. But soon, he learns that some of his colleagues aren’t as righteous as he first believed.

Wanted UK Review

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

According to the Wanted UK review, Wanted is “quite the best time to be had in a cinema thus far this summer.” “People, the summer starts here.” Well, we’ll see.

Wesley Gibson doesn’t have a lot going for him. Working in a dead-end job, he spends his days being bullied by his overbearing boss, while back home his best bud is busy banging his ballbuster of a girlfriend. Wesley is a loser with a capital ‘L’, until the day he meets Fox, a mysterious beauty with a big gun, a fast car, and an offer Wes can’t possibly refuse.

So begins Wanted – quite the best time to be had in a cinema thus far this summer. For it turns out Wes’s long-lost father was a member of the Fraternity – a centuries old league of assassins carrying out the orders of fate – and it’s now the prodigal son’s time to follow his destiny, ‘grow a pair’, and become the superhuman soldier he was always meant to be.

Interview: Angelina Jolie

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Angelina Jolie discusses playing a comic book assassin in the Wanted.

IGN Movies recently spoke exclusively with Oscar winner Angelina Jolie about her new release, the Timur Bekmambetov-directed action flick Wanted, which is based on the graphic novel created by Mark Millar.

This twisted and visceral tale follows Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy), a slacker who hates his life—with good reason, because it sucks. At work, his boss lives to torment him in front of his fellow cube-dwelling drones. Back home, his skeezy girlfriend is a sexual magnet for everyone except him, including Wes’ supposed best friend. No wonder this loser is on his 10th prescription for panic attack pills, which he downs like candy between cardboard meals of vegan tofu wraps. Wes’ pathetic excuse for an existence might just as well come to an end and save him a lifetime of prolonged misery. Fortunately for Wes, his life is over — his old one, anyway — and all because of a girl.

Enter hot Fox (Jolie), who crashes into Wes on the business end of a smoking gun. Seems Wes’ long-lost and mostly forgotten dad was killed while working for the Fraternity — a centuries-old league of supersensory trained assassins pledged to carry out the unbreakable orders of fate. Their motto: Kill one, save a thousand. Now it’s Wes’ turn to follow in his father’s footsteps and release the caged wolf that’s always lurked inside of him. Killing is in Wes’ blood, and he trains under Fox and a motley-but-lethal crew. The neophyte is forcefully pummeled into developing lightning-quick reflexes and superhuman agility. No one said becoming an assassin would be easy.

Watch our exclusive chat with Angelina Jolie below. Wanted opens June 27.
