SALT Sequel Moving Forward

Nearly a year after Sony Pictures confirmed they were pondering a sequel to Phillip Noyce's spy thriller Salt, Deadline reports that development has officially launched on the follow-up to the Angelina Jolie vehicle. The actress has already told media outlets that she's interested if the right story comes together and that task has been given to writer Kurt Wimmer, who's currently drafting it out.

Any Salt sequel will be without the guidance of the original's director Noyce. When news first struck last year that the studio was planning another adventure, the helmer quickly passed by saying:

"Those 3 Blu-ray cuts represent just about everything I have to offer on Evelyn Salt," Noyce told Moviehole. "If there ever is a sequel, better its directed by someone with a completely fresh take on what I believe could be a totally entertaining and complex series of stories."

As development continues, the search will be on for a new director to lead the next installment.

Depending on the day of the week I can go either way with my assesment of the first film.  Angelina doesn't really do it for me, in both looks and acting ability, but her star-power is undeniable so if she wants this to happen, it'll happen.  I may take some good health advice and skip the salt.

Gotta admit, I was pleasantly surprised with Salt.  Sure the plot was fairly simple, but there was enough of a fresh feeling that held my interest throughout the film (though the true double agent's identity is pretty easily identified early in the film).  I actually thought it made for a great pilot episode to a series centered on the character and her efforts in tracking down all the other sleeper agents left in the U.S. and Russia, but making a film franchise out of it would work too.

 It was free to watch forever on my Blu Ray streamline.  I caught bits and parts of it when a friend rented the film.  I'm not trying to stir up the cyber pot here, but has she made a movie in recent years that has been a success at the box office?  Most of her films appear to have been flops.  Not sure why she retains "star power".  No actor could consitantly make so many bad, or medicore films and still get plum offers.  But, then again, I'll admit....I'm not a fan of her work.   She just doesn't do it for me.  Maybe it is a case of tabloid power.  Any press is good press.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Salt. I didn't expect to like it at all. I thought it left a great opening for sequels, unlike many movies today that seem to wrap everything up and BOOM!...sequel. Jolie doesnt make me run to the theaters to see her, but in this case, I might just do that if the trailer looks good.

SALT - very good movie... I'll see the follow up. BTW - I don't care for Jolie as a person, but each time she's in a movie, she delivers... Saw The Tourist the other day and I just happened to like that too.

The first one was decent enough.  I just want to see how they wrap up the story since it was left wide open.

 mommitchell77:  I really was disapointed in The Tourist.  I couldn't figure out if they wanted a comedy or an action thriller.  It just felt unbalanced.  And, there were so many character elements that just didn't make sense.  Plus, the impossible ending which I will not spoil for those who still want to watch it.  I think they were Hitchcock inspired, but simply couldn't deliver.
