Angelina Jolie asked for a huge favor in getting By the Sea—which is currently drowning at the box office—distributed by Universal Pictures, and now it looks like the major studio wants a return on their efforts. According to ScreenCrush, they’re looking to have her star in either Bride of Frankenstein or Wanted 2.
The reports come after The Hollywood Reporter delved into “favor movies, in which a studio backs a respected actor or director’s passion project if they sign onto a more commercial one in return. For Jolie, that means we’re probably going to see her in a big film next. Rumors of a sequel have plagued Wanted since its 2008 release, but that film has yet to come to fruition.
On the other side of that, Frankenstein is breathing new life with the release of Victor Frankenstein (starring Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy) on Nov. 25. Either way, it’s safe to say there won’t be another By the Sea heading to theaters any time soon—if at all.
