Fans of the Marc Miller comic adaptation "Kick Ass" have been anxious for a sequel since the film's release in 2010. There have been intermittent reports on the follow-up over the past couple of years but many began to fear that the project had been shelved and would not see its day in cinemas.
Collider recently had the opportunity to speak with star Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass/Dave Lizewski) who assures that there will be a return of the everyman superhero along with his cohort Hit Girl and nemesis Red Mist.
"It’s pretty much set to go this fall," Johnson said. "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."
As mentioned Jeff Wadlow ("Never Back Down") is set to direct from a script that he penned. A screenplay that Johnson says will have all of the shocks and thrills of the original. And then some.
“Oh, yeah! It keeps the standard, from the first film.”
