Even Angelina Jolie knows when it comes down to a sequel to Wanted or a new sci-fi film from the director of Children of Men, that ain't no choice at all:
Vulture just heard the actress has pulled out of the planned Timur Bekmambetov-directed sequel at Universal, and the studio has pulled the plug rather than recast the film. As for Jolie, we hear she is now intent on starring in Warner Bros.’ Gravity, a space thriller to be directed by Children of Men’s Alfonso Cuarón from a script he wrote with his 28-year-old son, Jonás.
Jolie will reportedly be playing "the sole surviving human member of a space mission, desperately trying to return home to Earth and her daughter," which should really tap into our collective love of her conspicuous motherhood. Team Jolie! Find your way back to Earth!
