Kristen Stewart May Be "Wanted" to Replace Angelina Jolie

Kristen Stewart May Be

Is Kristen Stewart ready to step into Angelina Jolie's shoes? If the producers of Jolie's 2008 assassin thriller Wanted have their way, it will be so.

The New Moon star is reportedly being courted to replace Jolie in the sequel to Wanted, after Angelina reportedly backed out of the project. K-Stew would assume the role of Fox, who in the original trained James McAvoy's Wesley Gibson character in the deadly art of killing. (Speaking of killing, Fox's character was snubbed out in the first film, but never mind that—movie magic has made stranger things than resurrection happen.)

According to sources, Stewart has met at least once with director Timur Bekmambetov about the project. The biggest hitch to K-Stew signing on would be scheduling: While the Wanted sequel was originally slated to begin filming in August, the production dates for the final Twilight installment Breaking Dawn are still up in the air, but could begin filming as early as October, which could knock Stewart out of the running. Unless she decides to pull a Rachelle Lefevre, which seems pretty doubtful.

If they somehow manage to work all of that out, would you buy Kristen Stewart as a ruthless assassin? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

    Please tell me this is a joke. Kristen is a cute girl and a semi-decent actress, but she is in no way on Angelina's level of sex appeal and talent. The only way the sequel is going to succeed with her as Fox is because a bunch of Twilight obsessed fans go see it.

    HELL TO THE NO, THERE IS NO COMPARISON. NOBODY CAN BEAT OUT ANGELINA, ESPECIALLY THIS NO TALENT SO CALLED ACTRESS. SHE WAS AWFUL IN TWIGHLIGHT AND WORSE IN NEW MOON. ANGELINA SHOULD HAVE PLAYED IN BEL AMI INSTEAD OF UMA THURMON. THEN THE MOVIE WOULD BE A SUCCESS FOR SURE.

    If Angelina backed out, then there shouldn't be a movie. I admire Kristen but she just isn't femme fatale material. And to be quite frank, I don't think any other actress in Hollywood is in the same league as Angelina Jolie when it comes to action movies. Angelina is probably the most bankable actress in the business.

    She couldn't pull it off but Rachelle Lefevre could. Even so, I can't see a sequel to Wanted being any good. Sometimes, they need to just stop while they're ahead.

    I don't know if she could pull it of. I mean Angelina Jolie is like fierce and a woman that demands respect in the way she carries herself. She's very sexy and a knockout actress. As for Kristen, she's just a kid a bratty kid at that. She had mini meltdowns when promoting new moon, with her Joan Jett persona or whatever (hello comic con anyone?) and then when being interviewed she's defensive and turns a lot of people off. Angelina is very professional. So i'm going to say no Kristen could not pull it off. She lacks the acting ability, the sexual womanly power and the professionalism and cool demeanor to even begin to embark on a movie like that. Sorry. Amen!

    I think she would do great, but I dont think a sequel ESPECIALLY with a replaced (BY ANYONE) actor has EVER done good. If its not the original actor then its not the same.

    Worsting casting rumor EVER unless they want the assassin to mumble her lines and bite her lip the whole time. They shouldn't even bother making Wanted 2. No one will see it if Angelina, or at least an actress who can believably take over Angelina's spot as lead female, is in the film.

    I don't understand how this is even possible. The character of Fox died at the end of the movie. And this article claims Kristen would be a direct replacement for Angelina who bowed out of her own role. Unless this is a prequel or they botch up an already botched movie by somehow bringing her back to life. Come on. Obviously you people have no idea this was based on a graphic novel (comic book for the less informed) and the character of Fox WAS meant to be Halle Berry as drawn and written by the writers, and Wesley was modeled after Eminem. READ something other than Twilight and stop giving blind fangirl allegiance to a mediocre actress.

    There's no way she could pull it off. Not only does she lack the talent she lacks the respect of fans. Mostly, she lacks the respect FOR fans, she's constantly angry, plays coy like she's queen *&^% and constantly complains about the attention the spot light. Gee did she forget what made her a star, THE FANS. stupid shut up jealous much

    of course she can do this she is a talented actress and can do anything. kstew is bad@#$. quit making fun of her because she is a little akward and nervous in interviews they are not her thing. reveals a humble natural human side that many of those fake actresses fail to understand. at least she is not fake like angelina who so desprately craves media attention because she doesn't get much and no one gives a krap about angelina.

    Why not pick someone who can pull off looking like a bad-ass? Kristen is just a little too goofy looking for a role like that with her big chin, squishy nose (she's a cute girl, don't get me wrong - just no real sex-appeal). What about Halle Berry? She hasn't been in anything in a while...

    OH HELL NO!!! She could NEVER replace a good actress... No way is Kristen on Angelina's level...in beauty or acting! She will kill the movie and it will be a flop!! Trust the only people who will watch are fans of Bella... lol try and cast another REAL actress or prepare to lose out on millions.....
