Common, aka Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. has also been attached to the Ridley Scott crime drama American Gangster and previously took on some hit-man duty in Joe Carnahan's Smokin' Aces, which should come in handy for Wanted since the plot revolves around a young man (McAvoy) who discovers his family history is entwined with a group of notorious assassins. Common will play The Gunsmith, a character with a knack for you guessed it, guns, saying "I'm basically this dude that's a master at shooting guns. I'm training this gentleman that's coming in, who really has certain abilities but doesn't know it; I'm training him on how to be what he should be." The last news we had from film were some reported sightings of Jolie on location in Chicago taking some Vipers for a test drive, but it looks like the production is moving forward with this latest round of casting -- so we might see a Spring release in 2008 after all.
