Angelina Jolie Not Returning for 'Wanted 2'; New Details!

Angelina Jolie is officially not returning for the sequel to her hit 2008 film Wanted.

Angelina Jolie gets shot in the head and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, are you going to bring back Fox?’ I said, ‘Did you see the bullet go into her head?’ And they say, ‘Oh, she can take one of those milk baths!’ We never wanted to do that movie,” screenwriter Derek Haas told Hollywood.com.

“The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley (James McAvoy) is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She’s got a sh**ty life. He’s sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world,” he added.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of a sequel to Wanted without Angelina Jolie?

    What idiot thought she would be coming back for a sequel!?
    BUT- I actually think if they did a PREQUEL starring Jolie as Fox and her getting recruited that would be pretty awesome. Fox is my favorite Jolie role.

  • Mary H.

    Why would she come back? She committed suicide in the first movie.

  • James

    Hilary Duff is taking the role !

  • rachel

    without angelina this movie is not going to work. i wish she did more movies

  • Sean

    Good riddance. It’ll be a better movie now

  • Verity

    Only an idiot would think she was coming back but it is Hollywood so anything is possible. Angelina Jolie, was the heart of the movie, I’ll pass on the sequel.

  • 4real

    i watched that lately. ofc she got no obvious option. her curve shot failed to hit a vital or they make it a prequel? hello hollywood.

    i’d still watch a pre/sequel. it’s a good movie. raw and rare! but it remains/ed. :)

  • DUH!!

    Didn’t she already say that last year sometime that she was not coming back due to the fact Fox was died from her own bullet, along with the other assassins???

    They’re just using her name again to gain interest in the DOA sequel because they no for the most part most will pass because Jolie is not in it.

  • believe

    Angelina is smart not to come back. But the new movie will fail without her. She made that movie rock.

  • Sarah.

    Angelina probably brought in the viewers.. but c’mon, James McAvoy was awesome! I watched because he’s in it. Such a good actor. :)

  • Jody

    I always thought the lead character should have been played by Shia La Bouf. That other guy seemed like a Cheap Shia Knock off. The whole movie I was thinking, something felt wrong. That was the faux Shia.

  • reallyme

    I loved Angelina in that movie, but well, I saw that bullet going into her head!

  • Yaaaay

    Good, now it will be worth watching!! James hated her ugly self anyways

  • at yaaay

    technically speaking .. you watched the first one and it’s worth watching

  • anustin

    lol..good she is not coming back!i like the movie though…

  • Frenchy

    Don’t even bother making the film then. Waste of time and money.

  • mcavoy’s seed

    do you reaaaallly think mcavoy wants to see that witch after she stole his seed to make knox? knox is the spitting seed image of mcavoy.

  • plez

    This is not news. Angelina has said she was not going to come back. She loved the ending of her character in the film.

  • ellen

    that movie belonged to James Mcavoy and his wonderful talent. i loved when he said kissing jolie was disgusting because of her huge lips.

  • Welcome

    Doesn’t this beetch in black ever go away — is that too much to ask.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    good, because she’s fcuking dead!!!! stupid asss people.

  • at ellen

    really.. that’s not what he said :)

  • Green

    That’s not a problem. They could work a clone into the story. They could do flashbacks. They could do time travel. This is HOLLyWOOD.

    But, the point has to be made that the Wanted story is a STUPID premise. The loom? Those stupid assassins who’d just listen to the stupid loom? Just not really believable.

  • CLINIQUA

    Bahahaha! Please Mr no name no one cares ‘screenwriter,’ dude…even now YOU need to use ANGELINA JOLIE in your little press releases to even garner interest in a Wanted sequel – and STOP pretending like if Angelina had said yes to the project you would have written Edward Cullen turning her into a fcking vampire to bring her back…muuahaha…..oh, and P.S., no one gives a fck about James McAvoy, hahahahaa!! The only actress that could POSSIBLY, bring in the viewers, and get that same kind of excitement, is the one who’s name was bandied about before, KRISTEN STEWART. That’s right bitchezzz, when everyone and their mama was talking about ol Megan Fox being ‘the next Angelina,’ seems ‘Bella Swan,’ snuck in, and became the next Angie. She’s the only young actress that would bring in the viewers, she’d have her massive fanbase from Twi and Snow White show up to support her and the flick. If it’s anyone but Kristen, it will fail BIG TIME, there IS NO other actress who can put butts in seats in an action film. Don’t even say Jen Lawrence, as we see how her last NON Hunger Games movie did. Emma Watson is a big fail too. Kristen all the way, Angelina would approve too. :)

  • CLINIQUA

    Oh and by the way fans — don’t fall for it, this is NOT a new Angie thread, despite her picture being used, and her name being dropped — please stay in the previous thread, don’t let these leeches use Angie friendly sites to sell their movie. They need her name, they need her websites – they’re trying to get traction on her back — and are doing it disrespectfully in my opinion. Don’t pee on our leg and tell us it’s raining screenwriter dude, we know DAMMMN well it was Angelina who nixed being in a sequel, so stop acting like it was your decision fool. Hahaha. Later back to the Malificient thread,

  • Wonderbust

    just fyi to the haters

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2011/04/14/exclusive-james-mcavoy-talks-wanted-2

    “I think that if you are going to go without the guaranteed box office draw of Angelina then you need to have an amazing script and an amazing story. I think the studio is keen to make it, and we really want to make it, but we want to make it if it’s right and when it’s right, and that might not be ever.

  • a bad news thread for angie

    @CLINIQUA:
    hahahahahahaahahaha
    an angelina thread that is not good news = not an angie thread
    just like the brad gets spoofed thread was not a pitt thread
    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    us antis KNEW that was coming!
    angelina sux…..the magic of hollywood is NOT needed…..hollywood does NOT want angleiron anymore…her wide leg is a hog.

  • Wonderbust

    From deadline hollywood for the haters
    “Its also the biggest opening ever for a live-action Angelina movie and she proved a big draw: Cinemascore said the main reasons given for choosing to see Wanted were the action (67%) and Jolie (61%). Exit polling showed the audience breakdown was 52%/48% male to female, 51%/49% under age 30 to over age 30″

  • Wonderbust

    @a bad news thread for angie:
    except Angelina said years ago that she was never coming back for wanted 2 in fact she is the one who added to the script that she be killed so as to not return

  • Passing Through

    This ain’t news. Angie said 3 years ago she wasn’t coming back because her character was dead. This guy is trying to front like Universal never wanted Fox brought back from the dead but that’s bullshite. That’s EXACTLY what they wanted to do and Mark Millar said as much. Now this idiot is trying to make it sound like it was their decision not to have Angie in a movie that was only greenlighted in the first place because SHE agreed to do it. STFD Derek Whoever-the-hell-you-are.

    FROM TWO YEARS AGO..trolls have selective amnesia

    http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00033884.html

    Angelina Jolie has opened up about her decision to skip “Wanted 2″ despite the filmmakers’ efforts to resurrect her character. Met at the junket for her upcoming flick “Salt”, the actress explained that the plot which kills off her character in the end of “Wanted (2008)” was one of the reasons of her departure.

    “Being dead makes it difficult. They were (trying to bring me back) but I kind of feel like if I die in a movie, I should die actually,” she shared to Coming Soon. Jolie additionally revealed another point that led her to leave the project, saying “I’m that way, and that character is not as complex as Salt. It would just be doing the exact same thing in another movie, so it’s not that interesting to me.”

  • mcavoy’s wife

    @Wonderbust:

    yeah right. mcavoy’s wife didnt want the hep c witch around him ever again. angleiron saved face then with that claim of her characters demise knowing she wouldn’t be in a sequel. bet she wishes she hadn’t burnt that bridge NOW! she needs a movie stat!!!! mcavoy is relieved.
    hahahahahahahahahahaha

  • iknow what she claimed L00n

    my memory is great loon. they all know what she did to get knox. it’s hollywood smoothing shiit over.
    saving face and making sure mcavoy comes back for another. i know what she said loon. digging up articles are ya????….jeez i got criticized by passing gas loon on the pax z thread for that. hypocrites!!!

  • alanie

    What a non story! Angelina already has said she wasn’t interestd in a sequel since her character DIED!!!!!!

  • angleiron saving face

    ‘It would just be doing the exact same thing in another movie, so it’s not that interesting to me.”

    hahahahahahahahahahahaha
    bitchh needs a damnn job now. she had no idea she and her wide leg would fall so fast.
    hilarious

  • Wonderbust

    I wonder why no one is asking if Morgan Freeman is coming back. this Angelina news has been out for more than 2 years yet the writer is discussing Angie again to generate press, you think this story would have generated 32 comments if it was about Freeman

  • http://com Susan

    Running back to the other thread.

  • AMY

    Who would have thought she would live?. Anyway, I hope there’s a Salt 2, that movie kept me in suspense!

  • kung fu panda 2

    ‘It would just be doing the exact same thing in another movie, so it’s not that interesting to me.”

    hahahahahaaha…she’s too good for wanted 2 but not kfp2.
    think loonz! think think think like pooh loonz.

    if she did salt 2 she’d show herself again to be liar just saving face.
    she could barely do her stunts then….and this is NOW

  • cee

  • ???

    @CLINIQUA: Quote Judge Judy much??

  • who’s asking?

    @Wonderbust:
    NO ONE is ASKING if jolie is coming back. they are TELLING u she’s NOT.

  • Wonderbust

    @who’s asking?:
    “and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, are you going to bring back Fox”
    reading is fundamental

  • yolly

    @Sarah.: I watch Wanted because of Angie, not so sure without her as the lead role in the movie that I will be interested to see the sequel.

  • yolly

    Angie is tailored to that movie Wanted. I just love her in that movie.

  • yolly

    Waving to all the fans of Brad & Angie all over the world.

  • yolly

    God bless the Jolie Pitt Family.

  • joLIE’s wide leg can’t do sh!t

    JEN THE HAG said on other thread (i’m frozen out of other thread but i’m sure u’ll read this here as u seemless confused than some of the others…

    ‘joLIE’s wide leg can’t do sh!t @ 10/24/2012 at 10:29 pm

    Your WISH and is not coming true!! BTW a voice over for 1- 3 days work and she got paid 10 million i bet your face is green with envy bwahahahhah!!!! You’ll work all your life and you won’t ever get that amount ..sad to face reality HAGiston? I bet TICKY would be stumbling all over if an offer to get into a voice over like that and being paid that amount but sorry her voice is like a deranged drunk HAG would not do heheheheh!!

    ~
    @Jen the hag:
    what the hell does ticky manny chiniston have to do with angleiron? god get the f#ck over her. it’s been a very looooong time hag.
    10mil for 3 days work. i don’t know how that goodness angel of the world can show her spliced and diced face to the refugees. at least she knows not to show her ring to them. she is lazy and overpaid, and all these poor people want to do is put some crumbs of food in their childrens’ mouths. they’d work their fingers to the bone to do it if they could. she’s an elitist bragging cow. she should be doing every movie she can to help feed people if she really cared.

  • yolly

    @AMY: That one definitely be going to be a sequel because her character didn’t die.

  • yolly

    Waving to all Brad & angie fans. Goodnight. Thanks JJ.
