Angelina Jolie Departs Wanted Sequel, Universal Scrap Film

Angelina Jolie has dropped out of starring in a sequel to 'Wanted,' which has resulted in Universal deciding to pull the plug on the Timur Bekmambetov film rather than leave Jolie's character Fox from the original film dead or recast the role.

Jolie will now play the lead in Children Of Men director Alfonso Cuarón sci-fi flick 'Gravity', which centres on a surviving member of a space mission who is desperate to return to Earth to see her daughter.

Cuarón co-wrote the 'Gravity' script with his son Jonás.
