When Universal Pictures announced that they had hired Winnie the Pooh writer Evan Spiliotopoulos to script Wanted 2 (see related article), there was a fair amount of negative reaction. Now Wanted co-creator Mark Millar has chimed in on the matter over at his official message board, says there’s no cause for concern:
Never listen to any commentators as they never know anything about who’s coming back, etc. It’s just speculation and 99% of the time these guys don’t have access to the people who know. Wanted 2 is being made in a very tight circle at the moment.
As a producer on the thing, I’m excited. I know who’s in it and after doing 342 million at the box office we have series money to spend on everything from cast to crew to script.
This guy is supposed to be really good. He did a GREAT action script recently (on an unproduced movie) and that’s what got him this gig.
