Mark Millar Talks Wanted 2 And Kristen Stewart Rumors!

The comic book writer says that he's not too bothered about whether or not the sequel will ever get made and addresses the rumors that Twilight star Kristen Stewart is in talks to star in it...

"Well, 'Wanted 2' is complicated," Millar told MTV News when quizzed about how work on the sequel to the movie is progressing. "There’s no book for 'Wanted 2.' I would like to do the movie. I say if it happens, great. If it doesn’t, I’m not bothered."

As fans of the graphic novel will know, the movie shared very little in common with the book it was based on and despite mainly negative reviews it was still a huge success raking financially. However, Millar was quick to point out that despite that, he really has no interest in exploring the characters any further: "I only intended to write down one book, six issues. I had no interest in doing anything beyond that, you know, I was happy with it."

"Lots of people said to me, ‘Go and do a sequel or do three sequels, the movie is gonna make a lot of money and the movie would be great for your books sales,'" he went on to reveal. "But I don’t really write the comics for money, I write them comics because I like them. Sometimes I do things for almost no money at all just because I like doing it, so the idea to write a sequel just because the movie was big seems almost unethical."

Millar was then asked if there is any truth behind the reports that Kristen Stewart had been approached to take over from Angelina Jolie as the main female lead in the sequel but the writer was quick to point out that, "I think there had been some conversations but there isn’t even a finalized screenplay yet so they definitely can’t confirm any actors yet."

"I have heard that she was approached and she said that she was very excited about the idea in an interview...of working with guys like James McAvoy or director Timur Bekmambetov or whoever but it’s all just speculation."
