Writer of Kick-Ass (the comic book) and general comic-book God Mark Millar has been talking to The Daily Record and announced, quite casually that: “We shoot Kick-Ass 2 and American Jesus this summer”.
Sorry Mark, go back a bit there… what?!
The original 2010 movie was a great hit with fans and sadly the sequel seems to have been stuck in limbo ever since, and while cast and director – Matthew Vaughn – all seemed keen enough, no commitment was ever made. So, if it shoots this summer it makes sense that cast and crew are prepped and ready to go… so how have we heard nothing. Could Millar be having a chuckle?
The also mentioned American Jesus is Millar’s modern day take on the story of Christ, where a 12-year-old boy finds out he’s the reincarnated Jesus. While the book is, always from Millar, great, we’d be expecting a religious backlash – remember Dogma?
No matter what happens, we’re keen to see it… but with Kick Ass 2 we’re positively giddy…
We’ll let you savour how great a sequel would be while watching the original trailer:
