TSRn: 'Salt 2' starring Angelina Jolie May be in Our Future

The Scorecard Review news

News: Sony Pictures is going forward with Salt 2 and Kurt Wimmer has begun writing it for Angelina Jolie to reprise her role as Evelyn Salt. Source: Deadline

Thoughts by TSR: I didn't think the first Salt was as engaging as it could have been, but I dug the main character. And not for the obvious reasons, since I've had a fondness for kick ass babes for decades. Angelina Jolie's portrayal of Evelyn Salt was something you usually get with male superheros: a stoic, unflappable survivalist with a complicated history of both good and bad. Since the end of the first movie left it wide open for a sequel, and not in the way that typically irritates me, I welcome the progression of the franchise.

While Jolie hasn't officially signed on until she's seen the actual storyline, she's open to the idea. Plus, the original screenwriter of the first is hard at work on the second. So, if we could get a sequel that's at LEAST equivalent to the first, I'd be happy. Obviously a step up would be ideal, but I'll take whatever Salt I can get.
