With his newest film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter coming out this week, director Timur Bekmambetov has been making the press rounds and he was asked about the Wanted sequel. In an interview with The Playlist, he had a few details to offer about the potential follow-up.
An unbelievable thing happened three weeks ago. Because we stopped, we didn’t know what to do for three or four years. Three weeks ago I came up with a great idea and I pitched this idea and everybody fell in love with it. And now I think we’re on track. Right now the writer is working on the script, and it will be shocking.”
Though he didn’t offer any real hints at what the plot will be, he did make hints as to who would and won’t return.
“It’s a continuation of the story, with Wesley Gibson. Other people are dead, you know, we can’t bring them back. The story is the same character, same mythology, but it’s got a great twist.”
Which way do you think they should go with the story?
