For those of you who think a Wanted sequel just wouldn’t be worth watching, you’re in luck: director Timur Bekmambetov feels the same way.  Speaking to a Russian news agency, the Russian director of Nightwatch indicated that he’d be resurrecting the character of Fox despite a bullet being lodged in her brain at the end of the first film.  Though, to be fair, no specific mention of Jolie returning to the role was made.  Not content to just raise the dead once, he was also quoted as saying:

“As for the character played by [Konstantin Khabensky], we’ll think about it. We might possibly resurrect him as well.”

Konstantin played “The Exterminator” but, as a huge Russian star, there may be some financial reasons to bring him back.  Wanted 2 will be helmed by the Russian Bekmambetov and will film in Russia, India, and America, while utilizing many of the same Russian production resources that Timur had on the Nightwatch series.

So what do you think of this?  Personally, I didn’t really like Wanted and the one aspect I did enjoy was that it had the balls to kill off Jolie and a few other characters who we would have guessed to make it the whole way through.  Resetting the death clock is just lazy – unless it’s an excuse to bring in the world of superheroes, villains, and powers from the comics.  If that’s the case, count me in.
