Every so often we receive updates on a possible sequel to the 2008 fan favorite action-adventure "Wanted".

In a recent interview with, co-writer Derek Haas gave "Wanted" lovers hope when he said that he and partner Michael Brandt are close to completing the second draft of the planned sequel.

The pair had left the project, but were asked to return in 2011.

"We got that call that you always love as a screenwriter," Haas said. "'Can you guys please come back?' We loved the world. That experience was great. We said, 'Well here's what we want to do with the sequel.' And they said, 'Okay.'"

According to Haas the film asks: "Where is Wesley four years after the events of the first movie?" 

As far as the particulars are concerned, however, the scribe will only speak in general terms.

"The only thing I can tell you is that Wesley [James McAvoy] is now, four years later, recruiting a young woman who is in his situation in the first movie. She's got a sh**ty life. He's sort of in the Fox role. This new girl is brought into the world."

Sadly, Angelina Jolie will not be resurrected.

We will keep you updated as details on the project emerge.

    Thought it would have been a good movie but all the f bombs/constant cussing where unnecessary and the sexual innuendos where disgusting! The actions scenes were done rather well and the plot was good, just bad screen writers. Could have been a movie for everyone. Hope there is no sequel, if there is, it is NOT getting my money again

    I would love to see a sequel. And I agree with having someone with no action movie experience but is still as kick butt as Colin Firth!
