Mark Millar kept insisting that a Kick-Ass 2 movie was really happening, and it looks like it’s for serious this time. Even with Chloe Moretz having a pretty full schedule right now, some how she’s going to squeeze in the time to do Kick-Ass 2, in which Hit Girl has the major role.
Kick-Ass 2 is likely to press ahead, with Universal in talks to push on with the franchise. The plan is to start production this August at the latest, and negotiations have begun regarding securing the return of Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
The script for the movie this time around has been written by Jeff Wadlow, and as it turns out, Wadlow is in line to direct, too. His previous directorial credits include Never Back Down and Cry-Wolf, and Kick-Ass 2 will comfortably be his highest-profile project to date.
Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn is still involved with the project, but his immediate attention is on making a follow-up to X-Men: First Class.
