Wannabe Kick-Ass Gets Arrested For Prowling
Johnstown native Todd Kapcsos was charged with two misdemeanors including loitering and prowling, but he says he was just trying to be a ninja hero. "I dressed up in all black, snuck around, went through bushes," he told reporters following a hearing where his charges were waived to trial. "I was practicing some ninja moves -- ball, looking like a rock, just hiding in the shadows."
Kick-Ass 2 Clip Wonders Who's Batman And Who's Robin
Since Kick-Ass launched both of them to various levels of fame, Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz have both grown up a good bit-- though you wouldn't necessarily know it by watching this new clip from Kick-Ass 2, which premiered at MTV. There's no avoiding the fact that Moretz has cruised through puberty (whatever happened to the awkward phase?)
Kick Ass 2 Director Jeff Wadlow Hints That Jim Carrey Is On Board
Those who were hoping that Jim Carrey would get on board with Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall will likely appreciate this update. While it's not exactly official confirmation in the traditional sense, the word "officially" was used in the tweet director Jeff Wadlow posted this weekend, which stated that the film has its Colonel. And a very familiar (slightly modified) Jim Carrey quote was used in the process.
Kick-Ass 2 Will Features Villainess Mother Russia
In the second book of Mark Millar's gruesome graphic novels, the less than impressive villain Red Mist steps up his game, becoming the far more menacing Motherfucker. Part of his new image is a brawny but beautiful bodyguard known as Mother Russia, and Moviehole has unearthed casting specs that reveal this comely comrade will be making an appearance in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.
Kick-Ass Stars In Talks To Return For Sequel
When it was announced that Universal was making a deal so that it could create a sequel to Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass there was a lot of rejoicing among fans, but the news came with a catch: none of the principal actors, including Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, had contracts that would guarantee their return for Kick-Ass 2. Well, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now because apparently Universal knows that making the film would be pointless without the original cast.
Wait, What? Mark Millar Claims Kick-Ass 2 Shoots This Summer
The way that Millar tosses around "we" and talks up his collaboration with Vaughn indicates that the two are at least in touch, but the production schedule he's mentioning makes absolutely no sense. Vaughn was just brought back in to direct a sequel to X-Men: First Class...
Matthew Vaughn Developing Yet Another Superhero Property With Mark Millar
Vaughn, Millar and artist Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) have collaborated on a comic book series titled The Secret Service, and Vaughn holds the film rights to the material. Both comic properties are in the early stages of development, and THR says Vaughn would like to tackle the script for Secret Service if he decides to go in that direction as his next project.
Mark Millar Finally Admits Kick-Ass 2 Might Have To Move Forward Without Matthew Vaughn
As much as I really liked Kick-Ass (it was one of my favorites in 2010), it's hard not to see the writing on the wall. Lionsgate, who picked up the project for distribution in the United States, wasn't very happy about the movie's domestic performance, where it made less than $50 million, so they probably wouldn't be in too much of a rush to pick up a sequel.
Kick-Ass 2 Isn't Happening
The news of the promised sequel’s dissolution comes from Jane Goldman who adapted the Mark Millar comic for the first film. She says, “I don't think it's going to happen. At the moment it's not in the works. We're all doing different things at the moment. We would love to do it again, but we've all been pulled in different directions.”

Avatar And Kick-Ass Are The Most Pirated Movies Of The Year
It's hard to honestly argue that downloading has severely damaged Inception or Avatar, but it's a bummer to see something worthy like Kick-Ass deemed a failure
Hit Girl Says News On Kick-Ass 2 Is All Rumor
Last week I had a chance to sit in on a roundtable with Aaron Johnson, who played the title character in the sadly under-performing Kick-Ass earlier this year. When I brought up the topic of the sequel, Johnson said that the
