Matthew Vaughn Likely Won’t Direct ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ Says Jane Goldman

Chloe Moretz can’t stop teasing impending good news for a “Kick-Ass” sequel, but we haven’t heard any official word outside of her cryptic hints. Co-writers Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn have said that they would be interested in a second film if it could top the first, but there were no immediate plans to follow up on the 2010 superhero cult hit. Even with a second “Kick-Ass” comic series on stands, official word on a movie sequel still hasn’t hit.

But we may have some of the most concrete “Kick-Ass 2″ news in a while. During an interview for her latest film, “The Woman In Black,” Goldman told MTV News that while she’s still enthusiastic about further exploring the world of “Kick-Ass,” she doesn’t believe that she and Vaughn would be back as writer and director, but instead as producers.

“I think the only thing that is fairly sure is that right now, Matthew doesn’t have any plans to direct it. He and I are not currently talking about writing it either,” she told MTV. “It may well be that Matthew oversees [’Kick-Ass 2′] in a producer role, and I may also be involved in that capacity. I know that there is somebody that Matthew has been talking to who would be interested in writing and directing that. That would be cool.”

“It’s very tempting,” she added of going back into the “Kick-Ass” universe. “We had such a wonderful time making it. It’s such a great bunch of people, people we’d all be incredibly keen to work with again. If we could repeat the experience we had that would be wonderful. I think for whatever reason Matthew feels that he isn’t going to be directing that one.”

As for whether or not “Kick-Ass” even needs a sequel, Goldman offered: “My own feeling is that I love Mark Millar’s follow-up to the comic. I love the second volume of the comic, but whether the movie itself needs a sequel, I’m a little on the fence about that.”

Here’s hoping she lands on the side of the fence of making “Kick-Ass 2,” because we sure want to see it!
