Will Twilight's Bella replace Jolie in Wanted 2?

E! Online is reporting a hard-to-believe rumor that producers of the proposed sequel to Angelina Jolie's fantasy action movie Wanted are eyeing Twilight star Kristen Stewart to step in for Angie.

K Stew would star alongside James McAvoy in the sequel, as Jolie has reportedly dropped out of any sequel (ignoring the fact that her character died at the end of the first movie).

Our insider says Kristen was approached to fill Jolie's hot-woman void in the franchise and met at least once with Timur Bekmambetov, the director of the series.

However, Angelina's participation in the project is still up in the air. While her character died in the first installment of the film, Bekmambetov told MTV that he would bring her back in some capacity, in the sequel.

Stewart, of course, is busy with Twilight: She begins filming Breaking Dawn, based on the fourth and final volume of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling book series, as early as October, and there's still a possibility of two films based on the book. Wanted 2, if it happens, would gear up production in August.

Stay tuned!
