Kristen Stewart for Wanted 2?

Kristen Stewart has reportedly been offered the lead role in Wanted 2.
The Twilight starlet will replace Angelina Jolie's character in the sequel to the action thriller as a young, punch-packing assassin in the Fraternity, E! Online reports.
Angelina's character died in the first movie, which co-starred James McAvoy as her trainee assassin, but director Timur Bekmambetov has previously said he would bring back her character in the sequel in some shape or form.
The Oscar-winning actress has reportedly backed out of the second instalment, so Kristen could play a younger incarnation of her character - or Angelina may still be persuaded to cameo.
Kristen could be due to start filming the new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn as early as October, while the Wanted sequel was originally scheduled to start shooting around the end of August.
