Kick-Ass 2 will have gang rape scene, says Millar

May 23rd, 2012 by bash Comments

Digital Spy bagged a great interview with Mark Millar about the current status of Kick-Ass 2.

So, instead of us rambling on here about how excited we are about this project, here is a bit of the transcript. You can find a link to the whole interview at the bottom of the page. Enjoy…..

So Jeff Wadlow has been appointed as director on Kick-Ass 2. Why was he chosen to helm the project?

“Matthew Vaughn chose the director about 18 months ago secretly because he knew he wasn’t going to be doing Kick-Ass 2 since he had taken on the X-Men franchise. For a little while, a few weeks, it looked like he might do Kick-Ass 2, but they poured a bucket of money over him to do X-Men instead.

“Jeff Wadlow had been talking to Matthew about doing this move Bloodshot a couple of years back and Matthew was really impressed with his script. He’d done a couple of movies on a small budget, and Matthew was like ‘trust me, this is the guy’.

“So the three of us have been talking seriously for about eight months, and Jeff turned in a final draft of the screenplay about eight weeks ago. It’s in really nice shape to start shooting in eight or nine weeks’ time.”

Are the original cast on course to return for the sequel? We understand that there may be some scheduling concerns over Chloe Moretz.

“As far as we know everyone is scheduled to come back, unless somebody is hit by a bus or something. Chloe has a busy schedule but she has to stop sometime.”

There are some very controversial scenes in the Kick-Ass 2 comic book. Will it have to be toned down for the screen?

“Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film. The c**t line in the first one, everybody said ‘there’s no way you’re getting that in the movie’, but it happened and it’s the same thing with this. Everybody is saying ‘you can’t have a gang rape scene with supervillains’ and ‘you can’t have the dog’s head cut off’, but every single one of those scenes will go in it.”

How much material from the Hit-Girl spinoff comic is going to make it into Kick-Ass 2?

“Hit-Girl will be the first 30 minutes of the movie and then the next 70 minutes is Kick-Ass 2. So Hit-Girl is structured as the first act.”

Hi all. I'm Bash, I'm 33, and I became a nerd when I first saw Star Wars as a child. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. At Following the Nerd, I'm Marc's right hand man and can be heard every Thursday trying to be funny on our radio show. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
