Hollywood loves a sequel, and “Salt” is no exception.
Angelina Jolie’s 2010 summer action movie yielded close to $300 million worldwide (with $118 million of that coming from U.S. receipts), and Sony is planning a sequel, Deadline reports.
"Salt" writer Kurt Wimmer is already working on a script for CIA agent Evelyn Salt’s next chapter. As those of you who’ve seen the Phillip Noyce-directed movie will recall, the ending left open the possibility of a part two.
According to Deadline, Jolie, who starred in another sequel this summer with “Kung Fu Panda 2,” is interested in tackling the role of Salt once again “if it comes together right."
