Kick-Ass 2 starts filming this September, so the producers have just a few more weeks to secure a full cast.
The most recent news surrounding the movie is that Donald Faison may pick up a baseball bat to fight alongside Aaron Johnson's titular character as Dr. Gravity.
The deal isn't done yet, but sources say that Universal is "very close" to signing the Scrubs star.
As far as we know, pretty much every character that survived the first one will be returning — even Nicolas Cage!
We didn't read the graphic novel, so we have no idea how they are pulling that one off, but are certainly glad that Hit-Girl will have Big Daddy by her side (in some form or another) as she opens up a new can of whoop ass on her enemies!
