Millar talks Wanted 2
Mark Millar, the creator of the comic book of Wanted, has been talking about what's in store for the film sequel, and he's also talked about why the original was so different from the comics.
It was always said that the difference was because the studio bought the script to be made into a film before the story was properly fleshed out, so they went their way and Millar went his. Not so it now seems.
Mark Millar has been talking about Wanted (Filmstalker review) and Wanted 2, and he says that it was the studio that wanted to take all the talk of superheroes and super-villains out of the story, and not that they just weren't there when the studio bought the script. Mind you it's not one of those cases where you're wondering why an executive is making such stupid decisions, for even Millar agrees they had good reason.
Now it's nothing we haven't known for a good long while. We knew quite soon after that Millar was working on a sequel and the idea would be that about other fraternities chasing him down after he destroyed the American one, and that's what Millar tells us here.
By the way, if you didn't know already, Millar is speaking at the Glasgow Film Festival this year.
