Deadline reports that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Salt. The movie starring Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor was released last summer and made $293 million worldwide, proving Jolie can still bring the crowds whenever action is involved.
Kurt Wimmer wrote the first film and he is back to write the script for the sequel. Unlike with Wanted, Angelina Jolie is actually interested in returning as her character Evelyn Salt, so there is a good chance Salt 2 will actually get made.
Phillip Noyce, who directed the first film, in unlikely to return as he said last year that:
“If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.”
