A Kick-Ass sequel isn’t something really need, but it’ll happen regardless. The news for the film keeps getting worse and worse, but hope still remains.
Star Aaron Johnson recently sat down with Collider, where he answered some questions that have been on all of our minds.
He’s confirmed that the film will follow the original and keep its R-rating, which is one major relief and he’s also gone on to mention stars Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse returning to reprise their respective roles, as well as Jeff Wadlow taking over directing duties from Matthew Vaughn.
Here’s a snippet from the interview:
Collider: Since there’s been talk of it again, will there finally be a Kick-Asssequel?
AARON JOHNSON: It’s pretty much set to go, this Fall. I think now Chloe [Grace Moretz] and Chris [Mintz-Plasse] are on board. I’m certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct. Yeah, I think it’s going to happen.
It also looks like Kick-Ass 2 will be set to go sometime next year. I’m surprised by the fast progression of the project, but I guess that means we won’t have much longer to wait before being disappointed. Don’t you love my optimism?
