Digital Spy has a discussion with Mark Millar about the progress of the KICK-ASS movie sequel, which we recently learned would be helmed by NEVER BACK DOWN's Jeff Wadlow. Millar discusses the casting of the film (as far as anyone can tell, the first movie's original cast is expected to return), and quite a bit more.
Choice snippets include...
So Jeff Wadlow has been appointed as director on Kick-Ass 2. Why was he chosen to helm the project?
"Matthew Vaughn chose the director about 18 months ago secretly because he knew he wasn't going to be doing Kick-Ass 2 since he had taken on the X-Men franchise."
There are some very controversial scenes in the Kick-Ass 2 comic book. Will it have to be toned down for the screen?
"Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film. The c**t line in the first one, everybody said 'there's no way you're getting that in the movie', but it happened and it's the same thing with this. Everybody is saying 'you can't have a gang rape scene with supervillains' and 'you can't have the dog's head cut off', but every single one of those scenes will go in it."
How much material from the Hit-Girl spinoff comic is going to make it into Kick-Ass 2?
"Hit-Girl will be the first 30 minutes of the movie and then the next 70 minutes is Kick-Ass 2. So Hit-Girl is structured as the first act."
'Tis an interesting interview which goes into far more detail than teased above. Check out the whole thing HERE!
