The comic book writer behind Kick-Ass has just revealed an interesting bit of news to the UK’s Daily Record, and that is that the Chloe Grace Moretz-lead film will indeed be getting the sequel treatment. What’s more is that the film will begin shooting in the summer. Naturally, there exists very few details on this project as this is the first time we are hearing about it being ‘official,’ but if you want a sneak peek at what is to come you could always check out the comic books’ wiki page.
It remains very ambiguous at this time as to what the studios expect from the film. The movie racked up nearly $100 million when it debuted in the spring of 2010, but only half that came from the much more lucrative domestic end. With a $30 million budget, a second effort has been definitely under consideration for some time now.
Another question out there is how involved will Matthew Vaughn be in the project. Jane Goldman (writer) told MTV back in January that both she and the director of the original Kick-Ass will likely end up on the producing end of things rather than reprising their behind-the-scenes roles from 2010′s outing. With Vaughn set to spearhead the upcoming X-Men: First Class‘ sequel, he might not have time for Kick-Ass 2 even if he wanted to helm the ship once more.
