Kick-Ass was a rather nice surprise in 2010. It was a very different comic book film, quite brutal, funny, but also emotional. Director Matthew Vaughn made a film that many people talked about, and it was a success at the box office and home media market. So, it is no surprise fans wanted to see a sequel, and now after many talks and rumors, Kick-Ass is a go. Vaughn will not direct it, but he will stay as a producer. Jeff Wadlow is set to helm this upcoming sequel, which will start shooting this Fall. Talking to Collider, Aaron Johnson confirmed that the film will be rated R, saying that "Oh, yeah! It keeps the standard, from the first film. I think now Chloe [Grace Moretz] and Chris [Mintz-Plasse] are on board. Iím certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct."
Whether he is surprised about how much people want to see a sequel, Johnson said, "Yeah, and I think thatís why Matthew Vaughn has got his name all over this one, as well. The only way he was ever going to make a sequel was if it could be anywhere close to the first one, and keep that class and that quality, and just maintain something original and new and refreshing. And this script delivers all of that, right now. Iím excited to get back in the suit." So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to another chapter?
