Mark Millar reveals everything he knows about Kick-Ass 2 Balls To The Wall! Chloe Moretz (Mindy / Hit-Girl), Aaron Johnson (Dave / Kick-Ass) & Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Chris / Red Mist) will be cast again.
Mark Millar is very excited about the sequel as Kick-Ass ended on a cliffhanger and he always wanted to make a sequel. The Kick-Ass movie was very successful financially (it was made for 28 million dollars, made 100 million theatrically and 140 million on DVD) so a sequel was always going to be made. Mark always expected Kick-Ass to be successful and it was the 2nd most illegally-downloaded movie in 2,010 and the 7th most illegally-downloaded movie of all time, so Mark expects Kick-Ass 2 will explode when it's released.
Matthew Vaughn has been a long-time admirer of Jeff Wadlow who was handpicked as director for Kick-Ass 2 18 months ago. The screenplay was started about 8 months ago and finished about 2 months ago with the approval of Universal. Mark Millar passed down the comic strips to Jeff who has kept about 80% of the comic in the movie, so it's a clear adaptation of the comic book, and Mark expects he'll like the movie even better than the comic!
Mark Millar explains how they hope to get Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse back for Kick-Ass 2 although he can't confirm this yet. Mark expects there will be 2 new roles in Kick-Ass 2. Nicolas Cage won't appear as he died in the first movie, but there is a new character The Colonel, an older man who starts a Neighbourhood Watch group of people dressed up as superheroes patrolling a part of New York, which is already happening in real life, with about 150 people already doing this in New York, and there may be a second character Night-Bitch. Mark Millar loves seeing his characters walking around when people wear their costumes and seeing ads for his films on buses where he lives.
Kick-Ass 2 will also end on a cliffhanger so there will be a Kick-Ass 3 and Mark Millar explains how he expects it will be like the Star Wars trilogy. In the first movie, all the characters are set up, the second movie goes very dark, the third one will come to a resolution. By the end of the trilogy, the Kick-Ass character Hit-Girl is quite different in the same way that Luke Skywalker evolves through the Star Wars trilogy.
