Sony Pictures have confirmed they’re working on their highly-speculated sequel to the spy thriller “Salt”, according to Deadline.
They say Kurt Wimmer is back in the writer’s chair and is already working on a script; and of course Angelina Jolie will return as Evelyn Salt, a former Russian sleeper agent after revenge.
The first movie had a massive budget ($110 million) and while it only did OK in the United States, it was successful enough at the box office overseas and took home a total of almost $300 million.
“Salt” director Phil Noyce told Clint in December that he won’t be returning for the sequel. “Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Everlyn Salt”, said the filmmaker. “If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.”
I really liked the first movie and I’m excited to see where the sequel goes, especially after they left it SO obviously hanging at the end of the film…
Will you see a “Salt 2″?
