The 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:
As an actress, and somebody who loves to travel, it would be nice to be able to explore the world with her."
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?
