(http://stars.ign.com/objects/912/912238.html)Angelina Jolie (http://stars.ign.com/objects/912/912238.html) can pretty much do what she wants, and that includes passing on the script to a potentially lucrative sequel. She's done it before on Wanted 2 (http://movies.ign.com/objects/142/14267002.html) and now reportedly she is turning her nose up at Salt 2 (http://movies.ign.com/objects/083/083473.html) as well.

Moviehole (http://www.moviehole.net/201253011-psst-with-caffeinated-clint) reports that the actress has turned down the "current incarnation" of the project. "Jolie's just finished reading Kurt Wimmer's script for a potential sequel to her 2010 hit but didn't go for it," says the site. "Columbia Pictures have had Wimmer go back to the drawing board to see if he can come up with something that'll work for Jolie."

What's interesting about a report like this is the question of at what point in the development process did Wimmer, Columbia and Jolie diverge? Surely a general approach, plot, etc. must've already been discussed? Then again, it's Hollywood. Anything is possible.

How would a sequel even work?

^ That's the job of the script writers and they always are able to come up with something that'll 'work'.

It was a fairly weak movie, in my opinion, so nothing of value is lost.

And they can find another actress if they really think a sequel is necessary

Salt is good as it is

It was a good action movie and AJ's acting seemed good enough, but I don't think a sequel is necessary it will be a bit boring in the story I guess

Salt did leave an opening for a sequel, and I hope that they can write something good enough that she agrees to.

Whats with the Salt haters? It was a pretty good movie. Not saying it was the best movie, but much more enjoyable then other crap Hollywood dishes out to us.

Well, the other crap Hollywood dishes out to us are remakes, sequels and sequels of remakes. Oh, and also remakes of remakes.

:p

Salt is just like Mr. and Mrs. Smith

The movies as they are are good; throwing a sequel might not work and it will feel like everything is just borrowed from here and there to try making something good which might turn bad

I'd like to see her play a role that isn't an action woman. Every role she plays is the same, apart from Girl, Interrupted.

Especially considering the director's cut ending pretty much ends the whole film since she destroys everything.

I recommend The Bone Collector... check it out. I thought she did a damn good job in that role.

I liked Salt and I thought there was much potential for a sequel, but it's probably better to leave it as a sort of cliffhanger ending. I haven't seen the director's cut ending, so I'd be curious to see what that reference is alluding to.

Oh well. Makes me wanna pop in my DVD though. :cln:

She doesn't need Salt 2 when she has her leg.
