Well this hire from Universal Pictures certainly seems like an odd choice, on paper at least. Universal has hired Evan Spiliotopoulos (co writer of Pooh’s Heffalump Movie and its subsequent DVD Halloween spinoff) to write Wanted 2, based on a story by Chris Morgan. The film, like the original 2008 hit, is based on the comic series created by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones.
Released in May 2008, Wanted went on to gross an impressive 134.5 million domestically and 341.4 million worldwide.
