CATEGORIES Movie NewsWonder what became of CIA agent Evelyn Salt as she ran for her life at the end of 'Salt' last summer? Though the film was pretty mindless -- and incoherent and illogical at times -- it had enough straight-ahead action to take your mind off your troubles and validate your popcorn-in-the-dark cravings. A true summer film.
Well, according to Deadline, Sony is moving ahead with plans for a sequel, with Kurt Wimmer ('Ultraviolet,' 'The Recruit,' 'Law Abiding Citizen') writing it for Angelina Jolie to reprise her role as Salt -- and Jolie wants to do it if it all comes together right.
Director Phillip Noyce, however, won't be on board for the sequel. According to The Playlist, "During interviews last winter for the home video release, [he] announced that he wouldn't be back for any sequels. 'Those three [alternate] Blu-ray cuts [of the film] represent just about everything I have to offer on Evelyn Salt,' he said. 'If there ever is a sequel, better it's directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories.'"
The original grossed around $300 million worldwide for Sony Pictures.
