MTV Splashpage: Kristen Stewart Talks Wanted
Back in April, a rumor surfaced that "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart was in the running to play the female lead in a sequel to "Wanted," Timur Bekmambetov's follow-up to the 2008 film based on Mark Millar and J.G. Jones' comic book series.
When MTV News sat down with Stewart during the press junket for "Twilight: Eclipse," we checked in with the actress to find out if there was any truth to the rumor that she'll be following in Angelina Jolie's footsteps alongside returning "Wanted" star James McAvoy.
The original report had Stewart tagged to play a "young, ass-kicking assassin in the Fraternity," and Bekmambetov's top choice to star opposite McAvoy's reluctant assassin, Wesley Gibson. Though she wouldn't confirm or deny the rumor, Stewart did say she'd be interested in doing an action movie — if the right one presented itself, that is.
