‘Salt 2’ poised to pour at multiplexes

HollywoodNews.com: Pour on the “Salt”!

Angelina Jolie, and most of the creatives behind the Sony summer hit “Salt,” are planning to do a sequel. 24 Frames and Collider had the news.

Scribe Kurt Wimmer “has ideas for how to advance the story.” Currently, director Phillip Noyce is rumored to be weighing his upcoming production schedule out. He has the Russell Crowe romance feature “Dirt Music” and another spy thriller “Wenceslas Square.”

Jolie has her datebook filled with Tim Burton’s “Maleficent” and the “Kay Scarpetta” series on the horizon.

There’s no immediate rush to get “Salt 2” off the ground. Sony wants to see how the film fares at the overseas box office before giving it an official greenlight. Based on Jolie’s track record abroad, expect “Salt” to kick butt. The foreign grosses for other Jolie titles have exceeded their stateside ticket sales, i.e. “Mr & Mrs. Smith drew $292 million abroad versus its $186 million U.S. gross. “Wanted” made $207 million at the foreign B.O., 54% more than its domestic take. To date, “Salt” has made $100 million stateside with another $62 million overseas. However, the spy thriller has yet to stretch across Europe and South America.

With the James Bond franchise in a holding pattern as the MGM sale gets finalized, “Salt” is an excellent position to be the next great spy franchise alongside Universal’s Jason Bourne series.

The only question: How many “Salt” films is Jolie willing to make down the road, no matter how successful they are?
