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!
