Kick-Ass sequel to film this year

2012-06-19 22:18
Los Angeles - The Kick-Ass sequel is due to start filing this autumn.

Aaron Johnson is to reprise his role as the titular character/Dave Lizewski following on from the original 2010 comedy movie, and he has confirmed Chloe Grace Moretz (Hit-Girl) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) are also in line to return for the motion picture with Jeff Wadlow replacing Matthew Vaughn in the director's seat.

He said: "It's pretty much set to go, this fall. I think now Chloe and Chris are on board. I'm certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct. Yeah, I think it's going to happen."

Matthew's commitment to X-Men: First Class 2 meant he is unable to take on the directing duties of the sequel, but he has approved of Jeff helming the movie.

Aaron is "excited" to get back in the bodysuit his alter-ego purchased in the first film in which he attempted to become a real life superhero despite having no superpowers or special skills.

When asked if he is surprised at the recognition the first Kick-Ass movie got, the 22-year-old star replied to "Yeah, and I think that's 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. I'm excited to get back in the suit."
