Young and promising Hollywood actress Chloe Moretz has already made a name for herself in the movie making industry, despite her young age. Chloe played the role of Hit Girl in the movie Kick-Ass and she returns to the role for the Kick-Ass 2. Chloe has now opened up about coming back to play the character which she did such a great job of first time round.
Moretz was talking to the guys over at Hitfix, when she explained, “It’s been so fun being back as Hit-Girl again. Aesthetically, it’s been fun getting back in the suit and being back in the purple and the whole thing, but otherwise it’s been great getting back in the character for emotional reasons and the fact that I’m able to show an older, more dynamic… ’cause obviously I have had much more acting experience since then. So I’m able to show this more dynamic, personal character than obviously I could in the beginning.” As well as the return of Chloe Moretz, Kick-Ass 2 also sees the return of Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Red Mist/The Mother Fucker and Lyndsy Fonseca as Katie. There are also some familiar faces joining the cast of Kick-Ass 2 including Jim Carrey as Colonel Stars and Stripes and Donald Faison as Doctor Gravity. Kick-Ass 2 opens on August 16 in both the US and the UK.
According to Collider.com, at the Kapow! Comic Convention, writer-director Jeff Wadlow confirmed that ‘Kick-Ass 2′ shooting would begin in September and he added that Chloe had not officially signed on to reprise her role as Hit-Girl. At the event he talked about how Hit-Girl has a much bigger role in his script than she does in the book:
If you’ve read the comic, you know, she gives up being Hit-Girl, which was a brilliant idea I thought on Mark’s part. It’s something I explore something quiet deeply in the movie because what happens in the comic is she sort of steps away from the story in many ways and she’s sort of sidelined while Dave is working with Justice Forever and Chris is becoming the Mother[frick]er. But I was quite interested in what happens to her when she’s not being Hit-Girl. Her story is a major, major part of the film and she’s excited about the ideas and we’re in talks.
Chloe is now set to lead the remake of Carrie, she might play the title character in the zombie film Maggie, and this summer she’s shooting a supporting role in the Dennis Wilson biopic The Drummer. Since Carrie already has a March 15, 2013 release date, that movie would have to shoot in late July-August if Chloe wants to do Kick-Ass 2. Of course, if Wadlow is so intent on her returning, then he may have to push back the start date of Kick-Ass 2 to accommodate the talented young actress’ busy schedule.
I keep my fingers crossed! I can’t wait for Kick-Ass 2!
Such a great news for every Kick-Ass fan! Personally I’m in love with Kick-Ass, I love Chloe as Hit-Girl and I can’t wait for Kick-Ass 2.
According to ScreenRant, writer/producer Mark Millar has announced that production of Kick-Ass 2 will begin this summer. The sequel is planned for a May 2013 release.
Are you excited? ;-)
PS. As I see… it’s not confirmed yet. Josh Horowitz from MTV posted on his twitter a link to the news and we can read it means that Universal is in talks to continue ‘Kick-Ass’ franchise. We have to wait for official statement.
