Stewart Is Reportedly Wanted to Take Over for Jolie

E! News is reporting that the team behind the sequel to the James McAvoy–Angelina Jolie hit Wanted have set their sights on a surprising replacement for Jolie, who has backed out of the second film: Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. Though nothing is official, Stewart has reportedly met with the director of the series and would play a young assassin in the Fraternity, the secret group of which Jolie’s character was a part. The two actresses have more in common than you might think: Jolie and Stewart both have engaged in romances with high-profile co-stars; they’re both cool with being around blood (either in a vial as a gift, or as a byproduct of dating a vampire); and, of course, they both have six children.
