Given the smashing success of "Kick-Ass," it seemed a no-brainer that the powers that be and all parties involved would be game for a sequel. Problem is that a) we're still waiting on "Kick-Ass 2" the comic to finish up and b) all of the major players from director Matthew Vaughn to stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Chris Mintz-Plasse are all busy with tons of other projects. Hopefully the question is not if it will happen, but when.
Movies.com recently chatted up Moretz about what she knows about where things stand with Hit-Girl when we see her next.
"I think I’m going to be a little bit older," she said. "I’d like to do it in the next year or two because I think that’s a really good time age-wise. You can show Hit Girl in a different light which would be a lot of fun. ...You know her as this 11-year-old assassin, so I think it would be fun to show her as this twisted young adult, this 16-17-year-old Catwoman-y almost, twisted and dark person."
And although Vaughn has said he's equally excited to revisit Kick-Ass and Hit Girl, he has to deal with making not one, but the possibility of two franchises.
"We’re still discussing that at the moment," Vaughn said in May. "We might do it. People forget that Kick-Ass we made for $28 million and now with DVD and everything else has made $225 million in revenue so it’s done great business.”
“A lot of people say it could be like 'Austin Powers' — how the first one people couldn’t get their heads around, [then] they all discovered it on video and then the second one was a huge blockbuster," he went on. "My theory is I don’t know how to make sure 'Kick-Ass 2' is as good as 'Kick-Ass.' I enjoyed making the movie so much and I loved working with all the characters in it, so who knows? There could be one, but if I do a sequel to that it’s got to be just as good, if not better."
