TWILIGHT Star in WANTED 2?

Could this forge the peace between the two camps?

 What the f@#$ have you done, lately?

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.

Eh, no thanks.

I believe there's no need for another wanted, what's the point?

I don't understand the caption under the photo.

that should be interesting, as long as pattinson isn't in it too

@MrCipher: That's the closing line for WANTED.

she's not terrible. sadly the Twilight series have tainted her, and I doubt she'll ever star in something good again...

Eww, keep her out of movies.
Posted by InnerVenom123

Aaaaaaaaand now I'm not going to see this movie.

Posted by Aspenite

I didn´t saw her in a movie yet (and I´m not planning to check out the Twilight movies) so I don´t know if she is a great actress (or at least good, or acceptable, or etc.).

I haven't seen the Joan Jett bio-pic yet, it wasn't in 3-D (snark), so it will be a Netflix view. I did see Panic Room, and that was pretty good. I saw Adventureland and some other movie she was in and found both her and the movies disappointing. I hate it that actors seem to be playing themselves instead of characters in movies - but then, that was the career of John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, Fred MacMurray and Kirk Douglas in every movie they ever made. You pretty much watched them in the movie. 
 
Unless it's Zoe Saldana, I think I'll pass on a Wanted sequel.

Swap one ugly chick with another. From one Lame movie to another.

They think she's hot compared to Jolie?  She's not even hot compared to my dog.  Ughh... can't stand that girl.
Posted by Bruce Vain

Does anyone really care for another Wanted ?
Posted by Neverpraying

I think a wanted 2 would be bad and really bad with her in it. :\

Posted by Chibi-Iroh
@Crymsun:  Weather you like her acting or not she is hot. Angelina Jolie also seems to have finally started aging. I am convinced that her and Johnny Depp know where the fountain of youth are because for some odd reason they dont seem to age. You can tell Johnny Depp not aging seems to be natural and not the product of surgery.

it's unfair to let the connotations of Twilight follow her, but if this is why they're choosing her to replace it, that's pretty damn stupid.

Posted by KattVonNoir

whenever I watch a movie shes in I feel awkward, she's so like umm I don't know the right word... Twitchy or something and she always makes a face like shes confused/concentrating really hard/or taking a poop.

WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!! You know i'm really getting sick of these Disney star's getting so adulty i don't care how old she is. I never thought that this would happen and now it is well i'm not supporting this movie. This movie can go fuck itself.

Posted by KattVonNoir
@brendon277: 
I'm pretty sure Kristen was never a Disney star.
Posted by Nyogtha
@Chibi-Iroh: She isn't hot, she isn't good looking in the slightest.

  I don't see her replacing Angelina as a sex symbol.
Posted by Yung ANcient One

hey shes gorgeous so i say YAY

Posted by TheMess1428

She's not hot enough. I'm sorry. To fill someone's shoes like Angelina Jolie, you gotta go higher on the scale than Kristen Stewart. Get a blonde or a redhead. Cast Rihanna. lol Megan Fox is a better choice than Stewart.

Posted by Dr. Maxwell

I didn't like the first Wanted, now I have more reason to not see the sequel

Edited by NightFang

Maybe she won't be as bad as we think.

Posted by Ms. Omega

Ugh somebody shoot me.....................................

Posted by doordoor123

I dont care if shes in it or not.
When i see her i dont think "Twilight".
Shes been in a bunch of movies so i dont care if shes in it or not.

Posted by G'bandit

In what Galaxy does Bella compares to Foxx? They should get that other girl Megan Fox to play Fox instead... Aty least they compare her to Angelina and it would cause some rival controversy and we all love controversy for some reason xD 
 
Or we could now get a actual black girl and bring in the Comic Fox and say that Fox is a code name or something xD

@Baddamdog:
What do you mean, "whats the point?"..There should definitly be a Wanted 2.

You keep fox and her toe thumbs away from anything! she looks good but her acting is like hearing yourself slurp up some guys dookie. wanted 2 should happen just not with stewart or fox or any other terrible actress.

Oh okay. I have slipped into a strange alternate Universe where most everything is exactly like it is supposed to be but there are these weird anomolies. I first noticed about 10 years ago when I saw a dog with square irises. It was tied up and I was showing people the dogs eyes and they were like "meh". Another clue was that rappers started carrying purses and wearing tight pants. Now this. I wonder where the alternate "me" from this timeline is. Perhaps he's wandering about and I will meet him.

this preatty much ruined any chances of me going to see this movie
