There’s nothing funnier that seeing a group of tough Mafia-men being defeated by a 10-year-old girl in fancy dress, which is why fans of Kick-Ass are sure to be pleased that Universal Studios is talking about making a sequel.
According to Deadline, our favourite geeky, cat-rescuing super hero, Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson) could be making his way back to the big screen along with his ninja fighting co-star Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
Rumours are flying around that Nicolas Cage – who played Big Daddy – is itching to join in with the action again. Seeing as he died in the first film, it seems likely his role could be a flashback cameo.
Director of Kick-Ass, Jeff Wadlow, has already presented Universal with the script; a deal is being pushed, so shooting can begin this August.
The comedy-action film, which made around £67 million worldwide from a modest £18 million budget, is set to include two major new characters – a she-villain called Mother Russia and an old vigilante.
Mother Russia is pumped-up on steroids and is the ultimate killing machine. The vigilante character is a retired oldster who’s so fed up with the troublemakers in the neighbourhood he forms a team of superheroes.
According to Total Film, Mark Miller (creator and writer of the comic book) said that the sequel is more like A Clockwork Orange. It’s about a bunch of boys who dress up as super-villains and commit crimes just to annoy the super-heros.
Miller said: ‘Kick-Ass felt like what a real super-hero would be like and Kick-Ass 2 is about what a super-villain would be like’.
It hasn’t been confirmed if all the characters are going to take back their roles due to their busy schedules, especially Moretz who recently featured in Burton’s Dark Shadows, but we will keep you posted!
