Although Sony hasn’t greenlit a sequel to the 2010 Angelina Jolie hit Salt, despite rumors that it will be moving forward, director Phillip Noyce has confirmed to Moviehole that he will not be directing said sequel:
“Those 3 [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Everlyn Salt”, says the filmmaker. “If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.”
released this past July, Salt opened to a solid $36.0M and is currently at $118.31M domestically. The film has added $175.19M in foreign markets for a worldwide cume of $293.50M.
