By Pooh writer, we’re not saying his work is something for the dung pile, but rather the co-writer of the Disney Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, Evan Spiliotopoulos.  Evan has been tapped by Universal Pictures to write the sequel to the Mark Millar and J.G. Jones Wanted comic series.

I’m a little confused on how this will play out.  The ending of the comic book and the movie were both pretty concluding, so whipping out a sequel (especially when the movie ended with all the bad guys biting it) seems to be stretching things a bit.  I just hope this news doesn’t get Warner Bros. all worked up over a Watchmen sequel.

    The WANTED video game picks up right where the movie leaves off. Wesley goes to Europe to take out Fraternity members there. Why can’t they do that in a movie?

    Because making a sequel of a movie that was loosely based on a comic book is BLASPHEMY!!! ;p
    It’s one of those unspoken rules, don’cha know?

    I’d like to see a sequel. The main character survived and as long as those who died STAY dead I’d be happy.
    Angelina doesn’t HAVE to be in it, there are plenty of other hot…I mean talented….actresses.
