Wanted

Wanted is a 2008 action thriller film based on the comic book miniseries of the same name by Mark Millar and J. G. Jones. The film is written by Chris Morgan, Michael Brandt, and Derek Haas, is directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and stars James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, and Angelina Jolie. The storyline follows Wesley Gibson (McAvoy), a frustrated account manager who discovers that he is the son of a professional assassin and decides to join the Fraternity, a secret society in which his father worked.

wanted fan immersion gameSweden-based developer Stillfront AB launched a browser game based on Wanted on April 2008. The Wanted ‘Fan Immersion Game’ was a massively multiplayer online role-playing game where players took the roles of Fraternity hitmen, performing assassination missions, upgrading weapons and ammunition, and creating alliances or rivalries with other players.

 

A video game sequel to the events of the film, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, was released on March 2009. It was developed by GRIN, and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

Vehicles featured include a Dodge Viper SRT-10; 1966 Ford Mustang; Chevrolet Corvette [C4]; the police cars were Ford Crown Victorias and a 2000 Chevrolet Impala 9CI; elevated subway trains; garbage truck; a Chevrolet Step Van; an express train; and a 1971 VAZ 2101 Zhiguli.

The first film to use Red Digital Cinema’s Red One digital cameras. Several prototypes were used, alongside film cameras, to shoot about ten scenes. However, no Red One footage appears in the final cut of the film.

About 53 minutes into movie, Morgan Freeman’s character decodes names from the woven fabric’s yarn as strings of 0’s and 1’s. This is actually ASCII code used in computers and electronic data processing. In ASCII, capital ‘A’ is represented by numeric value 65, which is written in 8-bit binary number system 01000001, B has ASCII value 66, C has 67 and so on.

First generation RT/10 (1992–1995)
The centerpiece of the car was its engine. It was based on the Chrysler LA design, which was mostly used as a truck engine at the time. The original configuration made it too heavy for sports car use, so Lamborghini, then owned by Chrysler Corporation, revamped Dodge’s cast-iron block V10 for the Viper by recasting the block and heads in aluminum alloy. Some within Chrysler felt the pushrod two-valve design, while adequate for the truck application, was unsuitable for a performance car and suggested a more comprehensive redesign which would have included four valves per cylinder. Chrysler, however, was uncertain about the Viper’s production costs and sales potential and so declined to provide the budget for the modification.

In Chicago, Wesley Adam Gibson works at a dead-end desk job with an overbearing boss, takes anti-anxiety medication for panic attacks, and has an unfaithful live-in girlfriend who cheats on him with his friend and colleague Barry. One night at the pharmacy, Wesley is told by a woman named Fox that his recently murdered father was an assassin, and the killer, Cross, is now hunting him. Cross arrives and engages in a shoot-out with Fox, who escapes in her car while bringing Wesley along.

Wesley: [upon being startled by Fox] I’m sorry.
Fox: You apologize too much.
Wesley: [awkwardly] Well, sorry about that.
Fox: I knew your father.
Wesley: My father left the week I was born, so…
Fox: Your father died yesterday on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Building. Sorry.
Wesley: [laughing in disbelief] Look, the liquor aisle is just over there, so if you want to go…
Fox: [interrupting] Your father was one of the greatest assassins who ever lived. The man who killed him is behind you.

Wesley: [to Sloan] Do you make sweaters, or do you kill people?

Mr. X: No one leaves the Fraternity, Cross.
Cross: I have a new perspective on the Fraternity.
Mr. X: Careful. You don’t destroy something that’s been around for a thousand years.
Cross: It’s already destroyed. He broke the code. I have to stop this.
Mr. X: Really?
Cross: You know this.
Mr. X: So why don’t you face me yourself?
[pause]
Mr. X: Never send sheep to kill a wolf.
Cross: They were just decoys. Goodbye Mr. X.

While on location in Chicago, The Dark Knight (2008) was the neighboring film production, in which Morgan Freeman worked while shooting this film. On one occasion, Mark Millar, the creator, sneaked onto the neighboring set to see the Batpod – which was used for filming. He was evicted from the set when security and producer Lauren Shuler Donner (who visited the set as well) caught him in the act.

James McAvoy worked out to improve his physique for the film’s action scenes, and suffered several injuries during shooting, including a twisted ankle and an injured knee.

Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jada Pinkett Smith and Beyoncé Knowles were considered for the role of Fox.

QUIZ

Angelina Jolie says she based her Character Fox on which famous movie star ?

  • CORRECT

    clint eastwood

     

    Angelina Jolie was cast in March 2007, after screenwriter Dean Georgaris rewrote the screenplay to tailor the role of Fox for her. Mark Millar became much more enthusiastic about the project after learning that Jolie had accepted the role of Fox, saying ‘the only way they could have got a bigger star to play this role is if they’d hired Tom Cruise in drag.’Jolie decided to make Fox seem ‘distant and unattainable’ by having her silent in many scenes. She mentioned Clint Eastwood, who had recently directed her in the film Changeling, as a possible influence for this aspect of her performance
