Kick -Ass 2 Officially Greenlit!

Exciting news! It’s official, there will be a Kick-Ass sequel

It was inevitable that Matthew Vaughn’s big-screen version of the John Romita Jr. and Mark Millar comic “Kick-Ass” would get the green light for a sequel. Today it’s been confirmed apparently by Millar himself on a radio station in the UK who claimed that due to the wonderful DVD sales the sequel is a go.

It’s not really a surprise when you think about it. Sure, it didn’t perform incredibly well like people thought it would in the box office, but it seemed destined to be one of those comic book flicks that would find it’s audience on home video. Since this is all up and running, now it’s a matter of the studio bringing back Vaughn and the cast to the new project.

At the moment Matthew Vaughn is in the middle of filming “X-Men: First Class” for 20th Century Fox which acts as a ’60s set prequel, out in theaters on June 3rd, 2011. “Kick-Ass” star Aaron Johnson will be appearing next in Sam Taylor-Wood directed film “Nowhere Boy”. Chloe Moretz is in the middle of filming her role in Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo Cabret” and will be seen in Matt Reeves’ “Let Me In” this October 8th.

Aaron Johnson sweat on Kick Ass set

Aaron talks about how things were on the set of Kick-Ass in a new interview.

Aaron Johnson has revealed he had to endure hours of filming in a sweaty jock strap for Kick Ass.

The 19-year-old Nowhere Boy star – who is engaged to Sam Taylor Wood – plays a normal high school kid who decides to re-style himself as an amateur superhero, complete with green wetsuit, in Matthew Vaughn’s action comedy.

Aaron revealed: “It gets pretty sweaty at times if you’re fighting constantly and I had to wear a jockstrap, so it was uncomfortable, but you get used to it.”

He added: “I was in the costume probably every day for about 12 and a half hours a day, for three months. Only two toilet breaks a day. It was enjoyable, but it was mad.”
