"Kick-Ass 2" Hires New Director

Posted: May 9th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Kick-Ass 2" Hires New DirectorSubmit Comment
We've been hearing about a sequel to "Kick-Ass," ever since the first film hit theaters. Director Matthew Vaughn wanted to return for the second installment, but his commitment to the "X-Men: First Class" follow-up has caused him to step down.

But Universal Pictures is not giving up on the franchise. The studio has just announced that it is moving forward with "Kick-Ass 2" and has hired director Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down, Cry_Wolf) to replace Vaughn. Wadlow also wrote the script. The goal is to have the film in production by August.

Universal is now in negotiations with original cast-members Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse to reprise their roles. It's possible that Moretz may have a scheduling conflict with the "Carrie" remake, which is set to go into production this summer.

I dont't think Kick-ass and wanted will ever need sequels. Those are type of movies that only works once. Just leave them be.

I'd prefer a Wanted sequel. I really didn't like Kick-Ass aside from Nic Cage, Mark Strong and Hit-girl. The soundtrack wasn't bad either but I really couldn't understand why the main character was so dumb and Naive.

Was he retarded/mental in the book???

Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down, Cry_Wolf) not exactly looking promising from his previous films. Should either wait for Matthew Vaughn to give a sh*t or not bother.

WOW

Matthew Vaughn was THEEE reason kick-ass was so good.

bringing in the guy behind never back down to replace him. Is this a joke.

lets just hope this means Vaughn is just too busy working on the X-men's first classes.

I hate to parrot shamelessly what others have said, but no Vaughn, no interest for me, because the guy that directed Cry_wolf, which wasn't a bad film, isn't exactly the calibre I expected for director. I guess I might change my mind once I see some script, or some story details.

Also, the first film made a box office dent because of the controversy, with the little girl saying c*nt, so people just HAD to see it, but with her now a bit older, and the novelty having worn off, the only people to buy a ticket will be fans of either the graphic novel or the film, and I'm not really one or the either.

The first one blew anyway. the only reason why you watched it was for chloe and then you thought of yourself as a child molester because you thought she was hot

I thought it was better than the Avengers and can't wait for the sequel but it does need Vaughn on board.
