Based upon Mark Millar's explosive graphic novel series and helmed by the stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov--creator of the most successful Russian film franchise in history, the Night Watch series--Wanted tells the story of one helpless drone's transformation into an avenger for justice. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a superhero for a new millennium: Wesley Gibson.

25-year-old account manager Wes (James McAvoy) was the most pathetic, cube-dwelling hypochondriac the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend ignored him routinely and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this weakling would never amount to anything. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die in a slow, clock-punching rut.

Until he met a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie).

After his mysterious and estranged father is murdered, the deadly sexy Fox recruits Wes into the Fraternity, a secret society of assassins that helps him unlock his true powers. As she teaches him how to develop his lightning-quick reflexes and superhuman agility, Wes learns his league of henchmen has just one mission: they must carry out the orders of the mythological Fates, weavers of every man's lifeline.

With wickedly brilliant tutors--including the Fraternity's enigmatic leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)--Wes starts erasing one bad guy after another. But as he grows into the mantle passed down by his father, he learns the clan members might not be the enforcers of justice they presented. Just as he is given unimaginable powers, Wesley Gibson will discover that the balance between heroism and vengeance is thin as a tripwire and every man is eventually alone to claim his destiny.
