Los Angeles: `Twilight`star Kristen Stewart has fuelled rumours that she is replacing Angelina Jolie in the sequel to 2008 assassin drama `Wanted`.

Stewart, who is currently busy promoting `Eclipse`, the third film in the`Twilight`series, said she would definitely accept the role as long as the movie is as good as the original.

The actress is the favorite to take over from the Oscar-winner as the follow-up`s female lead opposite James McAvoy. Jolie has already ruled out a return to movie.

But Stewart says she will do the movie only if the script meets her expectations, MTV.Com reported

"(I would) definitely (take the role), as long as it was good and I mean, it`s really exciting to see (that as an opportunity). Wanted was a great movie. James McAvoy makes that movie different from most other action movies because he`s a real guy - you`re so with him," she said.
