Angelina Jolie Kills 'Wanted 2'

For awhile there we really thought there was going to be a sequel to Wanted. Ya know, that film starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy that was all about killer assassins and how stylish they could be while shooting someone in the head from over a mile away. I remember this film taking slo-mo action scenes to another level … and then taking it to an even higher level from there (not that that's necessarily a good thing, mind you – there's only so many times we can watch spit fly out of McAvoy's mouth in slo-mo before enough is enough).

Angelina Jolie in 'Wanted'

Things have changed now, and Vulture reports that Angelina Jolie has backed out of the sequel in order to possibly star in a space thriller called Gravity for director Alfonso Cuarón. Instead of attempting to recast her character, though, Universal has instead decided to ditch the entire project … probably because there's not really a giant fanbase itching for that sequel. I mean, sure, it'd be cool – but do we really need it?
Should Jolie move forward on Gravity, which, as Vulture reports, was set up at Universal, but recently shelved as well because it was too much of an "artistically challenging project" (Warner Bros. has since picked it up), she'd be playing the sole survivor of a space mission who's desperately trying to get back home to her daughter. Seems like a fun film for an actor – and one that could give Jolie something a little more challenging to work with...
Which film would you rather see Angelina Jolie in: Wanted 2 or Gravity?
