Salt 2 Movie - Salt Sequel

Salt 2 - Salt Movie SequelThe female-driven spy movie Salt starring Angelina Jolie is likely to get a sequel according to the Los Angeles Times. Yep get ready for Salt 2! Well, it comes as no surprise since the first film's ending was left wide open for a potential sequel. As of Mid-August the first film has already recouped its budget: the film has already cashed in $190 million for a production budget of $110 million. So it would make sense for Sony to greenlit a sequel: the character of Salt is now established and Sony would maximize its profits by building a franchise around her.

Scriptwriter Kurt Wimmer revealed he's got a few ideas for how to advance the story of Salt. Easy to guess that the movie Salt 2 would revolve around Evelyn Salt, now a fugitive, chasing other Russian moles planted in the USA or abroad.

Angelina Jolie would be glad to reprise her role for the movie Salt 2:

"I'd love to do a sequel. You never know if you're going to get the chance, if audiences are going to love it. But particularly with this character, I think there is so much yet to explore in her life with her - with her family, with coming to terms with who she is in the end, because of the way it's set up, she could be anybody. She could be in any country, she could speak any language, and so we have a lot of opportunities.
As an actress, and somebody who loves to travel, it would be nice to be able to explore the world with her."
Actress Angelina Jolie

I did enjoy the first Salt movie. I wish they'd taken more time to introduce Salt and her background though... but the film was definitely entertaining, and Angelina Jolie rocks as a super spy. So I really hope that the movie Salt 2 will be greenlit by Sony!

Do you have any suggestion regarding the plot of Salt 2?
