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

May 23rd, 2012 by Marc 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.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
