McAvoy on the Big Screen Wanted

James McAvoy talked to Empire Online about playing Wesley Gibson in Universal Pictures’ big screen adaptation of Wanted, to be directed by Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov.

“He’s [Gibson] an arsehole. A complete geek [at this moment the cordon rope topples over]. There you go! He does things like that! He’s a complete and utter failure, but he begins a mission to avenge his father’s death.”

Wanted is based on a comic book series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones published by Top Cow. In the story, Gibson discovers that his long-lost father is an assassin. After his dad is murdered, the son is recruited into a covert organization of killers and trained to follow in his father’s footsteps.
