“Pooh” writer tapped for ‘Wanted’ sequel
Evan Spiliotopoulos, co-writer of Pooh’s Heffalump Movie and its DVD Halloween spin-off, has been hired to write Universal’s action sequel Wanted 2, based on a story by Chris Morgan.
Like the original 2008 film, the in-development sequel is based on the comic series created by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones.
Marc E. Platt and Jim Lemley are producing with Timur Bekmambetov, who directed the first film and is attached to helm the sequel.
Morgan co-wrote the first film with Michael Brandt and Derek Haas.
