Angelina Jolie may not want in for Wanted 2, but a sequel could still work without her, one of the film's producers has said.
Jim Lemley revealed the idea of a follow-up to the 2008 action adventure, also starring James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, is still a possibility for him and director Timur Bekmambetov.
"We still talk sometimes about Wanted 2 - we want to try and continue that story because it's a very interesting one for us," he told MTV News.
"The reality is we'd love to do it with her, but also that story has such a big idea behind it that it can also go on without her," he added.
Angelina, who played assassin Fox, has made it clear that she doesn't expect her character to return for a sequel.
"In the original, she doesn't kill herself. I actually changed the ending. I said, 'If she was to find out she had killed people unjustly and was a part of something that wasn't fair, then she should take her own life'," she has said.
James - who next stars in X-Men: First Class - is in the dark about Wanted 2.
"I don't know what's happening," the Scottish actor told IGN.
"I think the studio is keen to make it, and we really want to make it, but we want to make it if it's right and when it's right, and that might not be ever," he added.
