Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart is being lined up to replace Angelina Jolie as the main lead in comic book adaptation Wanted 2.
Timur Bekmambetov, director of the series, wants Kristen to play a new young assassin in the adaptation, about a brotherhood of secret assassins who have control over secret superhuman abilities alongside James McAvoy.
Angelina's character, Fox, was killed off at the end of the first film but Bekmambetov had previously told of his plans to bring her back in the second instalment.
"We know how to do this, but it's still tough to do, because there is a bullet inside her head. But there has to be a reason for her (Angelina's character) to come back and we know the reason. I think we found the reason for her to come back," imdb.com quoted him as saying.
