kick ass sequel

kick-ass2-2013-hollywood-movie-poster

2010’s Kick-Ass, directed by Matthew Vaughn was kinda one of those “love it or hate it” flicks. And Jeff Wadlow’s sequel, imaginatively entitled Kick-Ass 2, looks like it’s going down the same road–combining self-referential superhero genre humor with nearly absurd levels of ultraviolence.

At least this time Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) is in her teens, and thus her appetite for mayhem and death will probably disturb fewer audience goers. Plus I’m excited to see what new cast members Jim Carrey, Donald Faison, and John Leguizamo are going to bring to the party.

Here’s the official synopsis courtesy of Collider:

Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.

Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.

Kick-Ass 2 opens in theatres August 16. Check out the red-band trailer below, with all the naughty words and nasty violence intact. Plus what I’m pretty sure are Russian subtitles:

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Gearing Up to Kick Your Ass!

Alright geeks, prepare to soil your underpants with delight – cause it looks like Kick Ass 2 is just about ready to be greenlighted for production.

Kick Ass (the first) was by-far one of the coolest super-hero movies of all time and fans everywhere (or at least fans in my house) have been eagerly awaiting news of the potential sequel.  Creator of Kick Ass, Mark Millar has been vocally maintaining the inevitability of this project, but it’s been two years and people are growing impatient.  Now, Universal Pictures has decided that the time is upon us and fans may finally get what they need to feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Jeff Wadlow, the man behind the script for the new flick, has been chosen to direct it as well.  He’s taking over for Matthew Vaughn, who has been slotted to direct the sequel to X-Men: First Class (hellz yeah!).  Those in the know may recognize Wadlow’s name from such cinematic tripe as Cry Wolf and Never Back Down (no offense to those that enjoy tripe).  It remains to be seen if he can bring to the table what is necessary to create a successful Kick Ass sequel.

Talks are underway with former cast members to get them onboard, but if everything works out then August is a likely date for production to begin.  Most of the cast has expressed interest in returning to the franchise, so talks are more of a technicality than anything.

If Wadlow follows Mark Millar’s original Kick Ass 2 comic series, the movie should involve Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl gathering a super-team to battle against Red Mist and his army of evil-bad-guys.  If he does not follow the original, then God knows what may happen.

Note: This project is not officially greenlighted yet!  If the movie falls through, please refrain from sending me or anyone else at Nerdbastards hate mail telling us what lying pricks we are.

 

Thanks to Deadline for giving us the word on this.
