Chloe Moretz As Hit Girl In Kick-Ass 2

Mark Millar, the comic book scribe who created the series the Kick-Ass movies were based on, revealed recently that he had discuss the possibility of a solo Hit-Girl movie with Welsh action filmmaker Gareth Evans (The Raid). Played by Chloë Grace Moretz in the 2010 original directed by Matthew Vaughn and its inferior 2013 sequel, Kick-Ass 2, Hit-Girl was by far the breakout character of the little superhero franchise that almost was.

The idea of making a spin-off with the foul-mouthed teenage vigilante was taken seriously by Millar and Evans briefly.

Chloe Moretz As Hit Girl In Kick-Ass 2

Chloe Moretz had a few starring gigs before she became a household name thanks to Kick-Ass. Director Matthew Vaughn’s bubble gum pop adaptation of the comic of the same name was a massive cult hit, but it took a few years before we got to see a sequel. As the time it took to get a sequel took longer, Moretz got older, and soon that young Hit-Girl spouting out obscenities would lose its luster. Then came word that Vaughn wouldn’t return to direct Kick-Ass 2. By the time the sequel came out it was panned by critics, and the film was a huge flop at the box office.

Now Moretz is confirming that chances of seeing Kick-Ass 3 are dead, and she blames it on those who pirated the second entry. Hit the jump for more.

SDCC 2013: Kickass 2 panel banner

Kick-Ass 2 is coming out in about a month, but that doesn’t mean the film’s producers can’t get the word out to fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The director Jeff Wadlow, as well as the creators of the comic, Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. along with actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lindy Booth, Donald Faison, and John Leguizamo all appeared on the panel in Hall H today. And they brought some all-new footage with them.

Some of the footage from the film showed off Kick-Ass getting into better shape as well as revealing to his friend that he is the famous hero. Taylor-Johnson spoke about how both he and Chloe Grace-Moretz, who made an appearance at the beginning of the panel via satellite from a remote location, had both grown so much since the first movie, and how that affects the new movie.

Kick-Ass 2 Group Shot

Jeff Wadlow‘s Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on August 16th, but you don’t have to wait that long to see some crazy balls-to-the-wall action. I was browsing the director’s Vimeo page today when I stumbled upon this brand new clip from the film.

Check out the clip here below!

The video lasts just a little over two minutes and features an epic showdown between Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), and an army of homegrown heroes and Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), who has been reborn as The Mother Fucker.

Kick-Ass 2 Header

Kick-Ass started a new generation of heroes who possess no superhuman powers but the passion to project the city. It may not have been the box office smash Lionsgate hoped it would be, but it made just enough for a sequel to be green lit. The thing is, Lionsgate isn’t behind this film any more, nor is the film’s first director Matthew Vaughn. Instead, Universal Pictures will distribute Kick-Ass 2, with Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow steering the ship.

By the looks of the new trailer that has popped up, things haven’t changed for Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Johnson still plays Kick-Ass, a hero with semi-delusions of grandeur. Moretz plays Hit Girl, a hostile teenager, who acts much older than her age. Their actions have inspired the people of the city to become heroes like them. But Mintz-Plasse’s Mother F***er plans to take revenge on the two heroes who took his crime lord father’s life, by assembling the most bad ass super villains in the city.

Did I forget to mention that Jim Carrey has a role in this film? Hit the jump to see the red-band trailer.

Lindy Booth Joins Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall will be the next big superhero movie to feature a large gathering of heroes stopping crime.

John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut and Robert Emms will be joining Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz to thwart crime and evil and stop the Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) dead in his tracks. News that Jim Carrey was being courted to join the cast as The Colonel, the leader of Justice Forever, was pretty big. So its time to take it down a few notches.

According to reports, Lindy Booth is in negotiations to play Night Bitch, a once normal girl who decides to become a hero herself after she finds out that her sister has been murdered.

They immediately hired Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow to helm the sequel to the ultra blood-gushing adaption of the Mark Millar comic of the same name. But before moving forward with production for the sequel, they had the get the cast back together.
