"Michael and I were just hired by Uni to write Wanted 2."
We reported way back in April 2009 that Evan Spiliotopoulos was hired to draft a script for Wanted 2. It seems the studio is going back to the original Wanted writers for the sequel. Here's what Derek Haas added in an interview about the project.
"We just always loved the Wanted world and loved working with Universal and (director) Timur (Bekmambetov) on the first one, so we're excited."
"Wanted 2 is going to take off after the events of what just happened. Pick up Wesley a few years later and go back in for another round."
