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

“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.

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

    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.

    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!! Says:

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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. :)

    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,
