Wanted co-writer Chris Morgan tells MTV he is getting ready to pen the sequel.
According to Morgan, Universal Pictures is in the final stages of negotiating a deal with graphic novel creator Mark Millar for a sequel to the June 2008 film.
Where will the sequel pick up? Morgan says "the point is to continue the journey that Wes (James McAvoy) started in the first film. Wherever he ended up at the end of the film, now it's time to move him forward."
"There's a natural journey that Wes needs to take," he continued, adding that the sequel "is going to be opened up to be more global."
Universal has not set a release date for Wanted 2 yet.
