Wanted Producer: "Still Talks of a Sequel"

Wanted producer says a sequel is still being discussed and that the franchise could continue, even without the star power of Angelina Jolie.

Timur Bekmambetov, who was the man behind the camera for the first film, is currently filming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, so when MTV was able to get a few moments with Wanted producer, Jim Lemley, they asked him about the status of the sequel to the Angelina Jolie starred film. His response maintains the rumors we've been hearing: that a sequel could still happen. Angelina Jolie has stated that her character is dead and that she would not be returning for a sequel and here is what Lemley had to say about the topic:

"We still talk sometimes about 'Wanted 2,'" he told MTV News. "We want to try and continue that story because it's a very interesting one for us. The reality is we love [Jolie] and we'd love to do it with her, but also that story has such a big idea behind it that it can also go on without her."

Having said that, one has to wonder whether or not the film would still have the same draw without Jolie. Wanted was a surprise hit at the Box Office and provided viewers with some rather stunning cinematography, and a few other...ahem...."views" that had people talking.

James McAvoy, who starred alongside Jolie in the film, can be seen in X-Men: First Class starting June 3rd.
