Angelina Jolie wants to play Evelyn Salt again in a sequel to 2010's "Salt," TheWrap has confirmed.
Kurt Wimmer, who wrote the original movie, is onboard for the second, also at Columbia. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is returning as producer.
Phillip Noyce directed the thriller.
The main character, a CIA agent who is accused of being a Russian spy, originally was written as a man. Jolie, however, carried the role credibly, carrying the Sony thriller to $293.5 million in global box office receipts.
