Sources are claiming that the director of Wanted, Timur Bekmambetov, is looking to replace Angelina Jolie's character with none other than Kristen Stewart for the sequel!
Despite her character's death in the first one, Bekmambetov had previously stated that he wanted to resurrect her in some capacity for round two. However, Angie has now reportedly pulled out due to scheduling conflicts and money disputes, so they're now reworking the plot to have a young
lip biting, marble-mouthed female assassin accompany James McAvoy on all his overly-stylized, bullet-curving adventures!
To be fair, girlfriend could probably use a badass female character after all the damage she's done to feminism playing the most pathetic, needy girl in all the world, Bella!
Not to mention that all Angie did in the original movie was stand around silently and shoot at things, so it would pretty effing hard for KStew to fuck it up. But we know she would somehow!
No production date has been set for this, nor KStew's next disaster - the craptastic, freaky-as-shit conclusion to the Twilight franchise, Breaking Dawn - so time will certainly tell if any of this actually becomes a reality.
Let's keep our finger's crossed that it doesn't!
What do U think?? Would U want to see Stewie Puss Puss in Wanted 2?
