Fans of the 2010 Matthew Vaughn hit Kick-Ass can lick their chops at the announcement (via Heat Vision) that Universal is in talks with Vaughn to develop a sequel. Kick-Ass debuted in the summer of 2010 and grossed just shy of $100 million. It was based on a comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.
Matthew Vaughn himself won’t be back behind the cameras calling the shots as he will take a producing credit on the sequel and has tapped Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) as his successor.
Vaughn has already hammered out a script and Hit-Girl (the character embodied by Chloe Moretz) will be the film’s focal point.
Cameras are expected to roll in September of this year and Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are all expected to reprise their roles.
