According to reports, Sony is moving forward with a sequel to the Angelena Jolie action vehicle Salt which came out last year. Writer Kurt Wimmer has begun working on a script and Jolie is reportedly hot to reprise her role as Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy but eventually ends up saving the day.
For those of you who missed Salt the first time around it’s a solid action thriller with some good twists and competent direction from veteran Phillip Noyce, whose previous film include Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger and The Bone Collector. You can check it out on Netflix Instant if you’re curious.
Sony could do worse making a sequel to Salt. I’m sure they would love to continue the series of films and establish a solid franchise. The company could probably use some good news these days.
