In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Evan Spiliotopoulos (co-writer of Pooh's Heffalump Movie) will be writing the action sequel Wanted 2 for Universal.

The film will be based on a story by Chris Morgan. The sequel will be based on the comic series created by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones.

Timur Bekmambetov, the director of the first film, will also be writing the sequel.

For Wanted 2, the creative team is working on the challenge of continuing the story after most of the principal characters ended the original in no position for an encore.
