For many years we have been waiting for the confirmation of a sequel to ‘ Wanted ‘, the great action story that Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy starred in 2008. After the rampant and violent first installment, the sequel was quickly announced; However, so many years of silence have passed that we already assumed that the idea was definitely abandoned. However, the director of the original film, Timur Bekmambetov, has surprised us all by talking about it again.
Perhaps the story he has in mind for this second installment has not been revealed, but what Bekmambetov is clear about is that if they left him, he would retake the project. And also with a new shooting style. It turns out that in his head swarms, as Deadline collects, the following:
“Maybe he’ll do the sequel [‘Wanted’] on Screenlife. I can’t imagine an assassin in today’s world running around with a gun. Why? He’ll use drones, use computer technology, probably. You don’t need to bend bullets anymore. You need to double down on ideas. “
Sounds interesting, of course. And in reality, given the current times of reliving past stories, this sequel can come back to life when we least expect it.
“We live in the ‘screen life’ of this crazy time, and film production is very organic because it can be done while people are in their safe place. The language of this screen, the “screen display” format, was created to work this way.
According to the publication, Bekmambetov has just signed a 5-photo deal with Universal, outside of the success of Un darling, which cost around $ 1 million and $ 65 million worldwide. DO I WANT 2 to rest is one of them?
In addition, Universal Pictures recently signed a deal with the director to produce five films using the Screenlife technology mentioned by the filmmaker, which consists of abandoning traditional cameras to work with smartphone cameras, webcams, and computer screens. Has the awaited moment finally arrived? Let’s cross fingers.
