Ever since Jeff Wadlow came on board as director on “Kick-Ass 2,” the long-anticipated sequel has seemed like it’s actually, finally in a “great place.” The plan seems to be for the movie to film this year with the main stars returning, so when we caught up with Christopher Mintz-Plasse while he was promoting “Paranorman” at Comic-Con, we couldn’t resist asking for an update on the project.
“Things are looking good,” he told MTV News. “It’s looking good. That’s what we can say. It’s looking good. It’s looking hopeful.”
If you thought “Kick-Ass” was violent and crude, then just wait until you find out about some of the terrible things that occur during the events of “Hit-Girl” and “Kick-Ass 2.” Mintz-Plasse wasn’t quite sure what would or would not make it from the pages of the comic books to the big screen, but expects that most of it will not be for younger audiences.
“My character in this movie is called Red Mist, and in this movie it’s The Motherf-er. And there’s a lot of blood and a lot of murdering,” he teased.
We asked whether he’s looking forward to the infamous dog murder scene that occurs in “Kick-Ass 2,” and his reaction was immediately, “That’s horrible!” Mintz-Plasse clarified that he’d do whatever it takes for the sake of the film, though.
“If I’m playing my character, you know, it’s got to happen. But I don’t know if that’s going to be in the movie specifically,” he said. When we told him Mark Millar said it would, he said, “[’Kick-Ass 2′ is] going to be rated X. NC-17.”
