Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie Are "Wanted" for Graphic Novel Adaptation

by | March 20, 2007 | Comments

Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy seem to be locked up for "Wanted," an assassination thriller based on a graphic novel by J.G. Jones and Mark Millar.

Timur Bekmambetov, of the "Night Watch" series, will be behind the helm when "Wanted" begins production this May in Eastern Europe. The screenplay adaptation comes from screenwriters Michael Brandt ("2 Fast 2 Furious") and Derek Haas ("Catch That Kid"), with a re-write by Jolie’s "Tomb Raider 2" pal Dean Georgaris.

The story’s about a guy who follows in his hitman father’s footsteps after the old man is, you guessed it, assassinated. McAvoy will be the killer-in-training; Jolie his mentor. Apparently Ms. Jolie’s character was a guy in the source material, but guys aren’t sexy. Angelina Jolie … is sexy.
