Universal Hires WANTED Screenwriters For Sequel


     Universal is bringing back the original screenwriters of WANTED to pen the sequel to the comic book adaptation, according to The Wrap.

     Michael Brandt and Derek Haas will write the follow-up to the 2008 film, and the pair couldn't be happier about their new gig.

     "We just always loved the 'Wanted' world and loved working with Universal and [director] Timur [Bekmambetov] on the first one, so we're excited," Haas told The Wrap.

     Although Haas said that they would like to work with Bekmambetov again, they are unsure if he will helm WANTED 2 due to his busy schedule.
