Is anyone else totally stoked to see Hit Girl tear up bad guys left and right while Kick-Ass just kind of stands there and watches? We are and we won’t have to wait much longer because the sequel is going into production in about 2 months!
Mark Millar, one of the authors of the graphic novels, sat down for an interview recently and revealed:
├óΓé¼┼ôJeff turned in a final draft of the screenplay about eight weeks ago. It├óΓé¼Γäós in really nice shape to start shooting in eight or nine weeks├óΓé¼Γäó time.├óΓé¼┬¥
Jeff Wadlow is the sequel’s writer/director and fans of the original need not worry because Matthew Vaughn hand picked the guy to deliver the goods. Let’s just hope he delivers.
It sounds like this flick will have all of the same elements in place that made the first one so damn entertaining. The graphic novels are, well, graphic and Millar says the sequel will be too, explaining:
├óΓé¼┼ôEvery horrible scene in the book will be in the film. The c**t line in the first one, everybody said ├óΓé¼╦£there├óΓé¼Γäós no way you├óΓé¼Γäóre getting that in the movie├óΓé¼Γäó, but it happened and it├óΓé¼Γäós the same thing with this. Everybody is saying ├óΓé¼╦£you can├óΓé¼Γäót have a gang rape scene with supervillains├óΓé¼Γäó and ├óΓé¼╦£you can├óΓé¼Γäót have the dog├óΓé¼Γäós head cut off├óΓé¼Γäó, but every single one of those scenes will go in it.├óΓé¼┬¥
Actually, we take that back. It sounds like the sequel is adding a few new elements in there to make it EXTRA entertaining…or really offensive. Ha!
