Angelina Jolie has not officially signed on to return for Wanted 2, and we don’t even know if she’ll be up for it, however if she is director Timur Bekmambetov has worked out a way for her character to return, despite shooting herself through the cranium at the end of the first film.
“If you remember from the first film, we have a recovery room with the baths of wax,” Bekmambetov told MTV News. “We know how to do this, but it’s still tough to do, because the bullet is inside her head.”
“But there has to be a reason for her to come back… and we know the reason,” he added. “I think we found the reason for her to come back.”
The filmmaker said the story behind her return from the dead still trumps all other elements, but “we are trying hard.”
“She was kind of… dead,” he laughed.
Damn those pesky curved bullets for killing off the box office draw!
Bekmambetov has said that filming should begin at the end of the year. We should know if Jolie will be returning by then.
