The rumour mill is about to kick-off with this breaking news that Universal are pushing forward with a sequel to one of our favourite super-hero movies, Kick-Ass.
Apparently Universal have taken the rights for Kick-Ass 2 from Matthew Vaughn’s (director of the first movie) production company.
Jeff Wadlow, writer of Cry Wolf and Never Back Down has written the script and is set to direct.
Now, while we are never too keen on sequels switching hands like this, the news that Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are all in line to return (fingers crossed) and the movie will be in production this fall has us a little giddy.
We ran a story a while back claiming Mark Millar was confident the movie would be filming this summer. Despite being a few weeks out, it looks like he may have known something way back then…
We have a great love for the first movie, the performances are spot on and the realism works really well. If the sequel can re-capture the shot in the arm formula of the first movie then paint us excited.
