Oh geez… this HAD to be an intentional innuendo. It left me so scandalized. According to E! Online“…Kristen [Stewart] was approached to fill [Angelina] Jolie's hot-woman void…” Seriously, that’s what it said. How lewd.
What they mean is that the star of those TWILIGHT movies has been tapped to replace Jolie as the female lead for that WANTED sequel we’ve been hearing about. It was on, then it was off, then it was on again, then Mark Millar guaranteed it would happen, than Angelina dropped out and it was canceled, then Millar insisted it was still going to happen. You’ll recall that Jolie’s character, Fox, receives a self-inflicted curved-bullet to the temple at the end of WANTED, making her return a little problematic. Actually, not really that problematic, seeing as how the movie played it fast and loose with the source material, to begin with, and the movie people were planning to go ahead without a sequel comic to base itself off of, anyway. I’m positive there could be any number of easy answers to invent as to how Fox could survive a ruptured brain.
Stewart wouldn’t be taking over the role of Fox, actually, but playing a new, young assassin from the Fraternity that James McAvoy would meet. The scant plot details that have floated around so far have said that the sequel would deal with other Fraternity (or cells of the main Fraternity) throughout the world, so perhaps her character would hail from Canada or some such. The issue right now, however, is that she’s pretty much locked, body and soul, to theTWILIGHT franchise and Summit hasn’t locked down the start date for production of the next movie. WANTED 2 is/was supposed to start shooting in August, while TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN might begin production in October and it’s obviously easier to fit a small production like RUNAWAYS in between movies than a WANTED.
Were this to happen, I imagine it’d be another bone of contention between the Twi-Hards (TWILIGHT fans) and fanboys (TWILIGHT haters) at this year's Comic Con.
