Do not want: Kristen Stewart to replace Angelina Jolie in Wanted 2


23rd April 2010

Kristen Stewart is allegedly being lined up to replace Angelina Jolie in the sequel to Wanted, despite me making this face upon hearing the news: ಠ_ಠ

I loved Wanted, not only because of the cool gun-fights and car chases and bare-ass hot chicks, but also because it felt like a total franchise non-starter: it actually went out of its way to kill off chances of a sequel with a big middle-finger.

So naturally, now a sequel is happening anyway, and the best character - that's Angelina Jolie's Fox, by the by - won't be appearing for reasons that are obvious if you've seen the first movie. But worry not, because director Timur Bekmambetov has apparently held meetings with Kristen Stewart to fill the curvy void left by the departing Jolie.

(*record scratch*)

Damn I right I scratched the record. This will not stand. Jolie, as much as she is a tree-hugging, baby-adopting hippy, is also a pretty solid action heroine. Whatever your thoughts on Tomb Raider and the like, you can't argue she's got the presence (and the body) to carry an action movie.

Kristen Stewart, on the other hand, does this in all her movies.

The fact a Wanted sequel is happening at all is bad enough, but the real piss on the nettle is replacing a stone cold hottie like Jolie with a wet fish like Stewart. It'd be like making a Die Hard movie with Justin Timberlake instead of Bruce Willis. Also, the movie is directed by Michael Bay and is titled 'Die Hard or Rock Out'.

I won't have it. I'll dust off my placard, Hollywood: just you watch. Get your Twilight out of my movies!
