Director Timur Bekmambetov has found great success in both his own country and the U.S. His films, Nightwatch, Daywatch and Wanted show a decided flair for the dramatic and an aesthetic that’s both pleasing to the eye and filled with exceptional inventive style. He also knows his way around an action scene and isn’t afraid to get his characters into some tense, unusual and often deadly situations.
Recently, I had a chance to chat with Bekmambetov about several topics during Comic-Con in San Diego including the upcoming film 9, what’s going on with Wanted 2 and if he plans to bring Angelina Jolie’s character Fox back from the dead.
Check out part of that interview, where we walk Wanted 2, after the jump. Also, be sure to check back right here for the rest of the interview where we walk all about Shane Acker’s 9 and what movie Bekmambetov consider his ultimate dream project.
