After Angelina Jolie‘s action-packed performance in Wanted, the end of the movie made it seem unlikely she’d return for a sequel. But now director Timur Bekmambetov thinks he’s found a way to make it happen.

(WARNING: SPOILER ALERTS AHEAD!)

Even Angie previously said she didn’t think her character Fox could come back, mostly because, as Bekmambetov tells MTV News, “She was kind of… dead.” But this is a story based on a comic book, where unlikely comebacks reign, and Bekmambetov says he’s got a plan.

“If you remember from the first film, we have a recovery room with the baths of wax,” he explains to MTV News. “We know how to do this, but it’s still tough to do, because the bullet is inside her head.”

“But there has to be a reason for her to come back… and we know the reason,” he added. “I think we found the reason for her to come back.”

Angelina’s return isn’t signed, sealed and delivered yet, but Bekmambetov did reveal that he wants to start making the sequel this winter.
