Matthew Vaughn says he DOES want to make a Hit-Girl movie after all…

June 18th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Remember a while back we posted a story about a Hit-Girl movie and Mark Millar himself Tweeted us to tell us that, sadly, it wasn’t happening (here)?

Well Matthew Vaughn, director of the first Kick-Ass movie, has been saying that he’s not done with the franchise and he is planning on getting back to Hit-Girl.

“We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit-Girl and Big Daddy become Hit-Girl and Big Daddy. If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn’t like ‘Kick-Ass 2’ and then we can go off and make ‘Kick-Ass 3.’ I think we’ve got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with ‘Kick-Ass.’”

Ok, so is this a different Hit-Girl movie than Mark Millar was talking about? We’re confused…

What we aren’t confused about is our hopes to see a Hit-Girl movie – although we reckon Chloe Moretz is far to grown up now so the character will have to be recast, especially if it’s a prequel movie.

What about you? Is it noble that Vaughn wants to get back to that universe? Or do you reckon it’s all about the money?

Let us know…

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….
