Salt was a welcome surprise for Sony and did decent business in the box office with a $293 million dollar return with a $110 million dollar budget. As such, there have been murmurs of a sequel since the opening weekend and today we learn that Sony is finally officially committing to the project today.

Sony Pictures is officially moving forward with a sequel to “Salt” and has brought back Kurt Wimmer (Law Abiding Citizen, The Recruit) to begin writing the script.
Angelina Jolie is attached to return as Evelyn Salt, the CIA agent who spent the first movie running for her life after being outed as a Russian spy.
Sounds good so far. I really enjoyed the first movie and wondered when they would get around to announcing a sequel. It’s going to be hard to imagine a premise that is equally engaging as the first without the mystery that propelled audiences until the closing credits during the first go around. This one is nicely nestled in the lower echelons of my ‘radar’.
