Rumors of a Wanted sequel have circulated since the first films release, puzzling those who saw the bullet-curving action flick (I'm still trying to figure what I watched go down in that movie). Despite the rumors, there's never been any real traction. Director Timur Bekmambetov has said in the past, “We are discussing ‘Wanted 2’ every month. We are working on it now, but I think it will be after Lincoln [Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter] because James [McAvoy] is working on the X-Men: First Class."

Some time has passed since then and Wanted 2 is inching forward with the hiring of Michael Brandt and Derek Haas to write the script. The duo also wrote the original which saw bullet-curving ju jitsu, a magical loom that predicted the fate of man, Common acting, and a variety of other things that made little to no sense. We'll see how the story develops and whether or not any of the original cast return for another astoundingly retarded film. (via The Playlist)
