The studio has hired Kurt Wimmer, who wrote the original Salt, to write the sequel screenplay. While Angelina Jolie has not officially signed on for the sequel, the actress will likely return if the script comes together in the right way. Back in August, we reported that Angelina Jolie expressed interest in returning for a Salt sequel.
Salt starred Angelina Jolie as a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian double-agent, which forces her to go on the lam to clear her name. Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and August Diehl also starred in Salt, which grossed over $300 million worldwide.
