While no greenlight has been given for a Salt 2 both Sony and Angelina Jolie have shown interest in making a sequel. The film has made $293 million worldwide on a budget of $110 million thanks to strong interest overseas, so the financial incentive is there to make another one.
Although, they may have to find a different director as it appears Phillip Noyce isn’t interested in returning.
“Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Everlyn Salt”, says the filmmaker. “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.”
The Salt DVD and Blu-ray will be released tomorrow so Sony will probably see how that fares before moving forward with a sequel, but it’s likely they will. Jolie’s latest movie, The Tourist, hasn’t exactly made a mark on the box office but if you put the actress in an action movie she always delivers the goods.
