During the Comic-Con panel for the upcoming "stitchpunk" computer-animated film 9, producer Timur Bekmambetov talked briefly about the follow-up to his last film, the violent action film Wanted. "Yes, I think it's coming," Bekmambetov said. "We're working hard to be ready to shoot in a few months."

The original Wanted was released in 2008 and grossed more than $134 million at the domestic box office. When asked whether the film would reunite original stars James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie, Bekmambetov deftly revealed, "James McAvoy will be in the movie, and he will try to wake up our Fox."

Jolie's character died at the end of the first film, but when asked where Fox currently resides, Bekmembetov said evasively, "She's in a bath with wax," referring to the healing baths which the characters took in the first film to repair themselves after so much gun-toting mayhem.
