More laughs and battles coming next year!
The author of the Kick-Ass comics Mark Millar has confirmed that a sequel to the 2010 film adaptation of his orignal graphic novel will commence shooting this Summer for release next year. "Kick-Ass 2 will film this Summer," he commented on his forums, "I expect there will be an announcement of some sort in the next week. Matthew Vaughn is co-writing and producing, Kick-Ass being a labour of love for him. He selected the perfect director last year and we're very happy. Trust him...he knows what he's doing." The second feature film is expected to follow a similar novel to Millar's penned sequel, whereby a team of super villains is formed to get revenge on Hit Girl for her feisty assault on Red Mist's father and his criminal organisation. Obviously Nicholas Cage won't be back this time around unless any flashback sequences are planned, but hopefully we'll see Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Please and Chloe Grace-Moretz all reprising their roles as the three leads in what promises to be one of the best superhero sequels around. Kick-Ass 2 is likely to release in Winter 2013.
