Kick Ass 2 movie release date Kick Ass 2 Shooting Next Year for 2012 Release Date

Now that Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn has signed with 20th Century Fox to direct X-Men: First Class this summer, when will he get to work on Kick-Ass 2?

Kick-Ass creator and writer Mark Millar is launching a new mainstream comic magazine in the UK titled CLiNT and in its first issue, he’ll be kicking off the sequel to Kick-Ass to continue the comic book series which will eventually form the basis for the story of the Kick-Ass movie sequel.

Understandably, Matthew Vaughn has a lot of offers coming in and several projects on the go for the next few years. According to the official statement regarding CLiNT magazine and the Kick-Ass sequel, production will begin next year.

“‘Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall’ has been scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by picking up CLiNT.”

From the words of Kick-Ass stars Aaron Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, we can expect Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall to be even darker. If you’re interested in the sequel and specifically, the character of Red Mist, check out the Christopher Mintz-Plasse interview where he talks Kick-Ass 2 and changes we can expect from his character.

Are you excited for some more Kick-Ass?

  1. Yessss….we def need more Kick-Ass
    too bad there’ll be no more of Nic Cage in the sequel

  2. I didn’t expect a sequel this soon. :)

  3. hell Yeah!!!!

  4. I wonder to what extent the Kick-Ass 2 comic will be influenced by the Kick-Ass 1 film?

  5. As long as Hit-Girl doesn’t loose her charming attitude, and that adorable smirk, I’m there!!!

    I too will miss Cage as Big Daddy, his baby monitor scene was one of the best in the entire film !

    It was pretty clear there was going to be a sequel, I think Red Mist will prb get a name change in part 2. And keep it Rated R! For the love of humanity!

    • I agree. Best scene in the movie was when Big Daddy was cleaning up in that warehouse.

      I thought that fit better into the movie than all of Hit-Girl’s action scenes.

      Red Mist will be the Orange Mist now, lol

  6. I don’t believe in a sequel until I know who is paying for it.

    Although I badly want one…

  7. Interesting. Even though I know the film made it’s budget, I sort of wasn’t sure there’d be a movie sequel. If they’re filming by 2011 I guess they might have stretch how Hit Girl is portrayed a little bit since Chloe Moretz was 10 or 11 when Kick-Ass was filmed and she’ll be 14 or 15 by 2011.

  8. I guess they figured that it’s going to become a cult movie, so they’ll be able to do enough money in the long run.

  9. Yeah Rob, after the warehouse scene I cried out,”let’s see Batman do that!!, Amateur!!”

    Hit-Girl at the apt when she fisrt saves Kick Ass, was her best scene and best line,,, (IMO)

  10. Best news I have heard all day.

  11. Agreed with others that the best scene in the movie was Big Daddy cleaning out the warehouse. It sent chills down my spine and I don’t think I blinked the entire time.

  12. Tacoloft,,,
    Big Daddy and Hit-Girl stole the film.
    ^
    They were what I was waiting for inbetween the Kick Ass parts.

    :-)

  13. Never believe anything that Mark Millar says. I’m not hating on the guy here, and I’d love to see a sequel made, but he’s pretty much a professional liar who’ll say anything to promote himself and his own work, regardless of whether it is based in fact or not.

  14. well if anybody knows if there will be auditions for girls between 11-12 and when will the auditons be cause i want to try out for the part!!!! so please if you know then comment or well just comment !!!!!! love yallssss ohh and 1 more thing if you know anything that can help me out to get in this film i mean like just sending messages to the man who made this film that would be very hopeful for me!!!! thats allZzzzz my friend and please dont say i wont make it and stuff like that cuz i am trying and sometimes thats what gets you in a movie!! byezZZZZZ

    • Are you a girl? Or are you a large fat man from Minneapolis, if its the second then I’m sorry you don’t have a chance. Otherwise do you look like Hit Girl? Can you do kung-fu? Can you kill a man with a kitchen knife? Can you really spit curse words?

    • Btw, Chloe Moretz is still gonna be hit-girl, I wanna see hit-girl much more older 14 or 15, it’ll be cool. There’s not better hit-girl than her so I doubt you will be “The new hit-girl”

      THERE’S NO BETTER HIT-GIRL THAN HER!!!!

    • Bet you don’t look like her…

  15. If anybody knows about auditions for a girl. I could play ages 12-15. Yea I’m a pretty small:D I really want to be an actress and if anybody can just tell me about auditions for anything that would be fantastic! And I would especially love something where I get to swear because that is not like me at all:) so it would help me grow as an actress. thanks!

  18. Is there any auditions for kick ass 2 for a guy that is 10-14 years old

  19. If anybody knows about auditions for an old fellow. I could play ages 65-80. Yea I’m a pretty old and hairy:D I really want to be an actor and if anybody can just tell me about auditions for anything that would be fantastic! And I would especially enjoy something where I get to swear because that is not like me at all:) so it would help me grow as an actor. thanks!

  22. Hey you can audition to my balls !!! Does this look like the audition help line !!! No so dont be dumb N leave info

  23. so what about auditions – i mean if it for production this year then auditions have to be pretty soon – they killed off all but 4 of the last characters – but i think that it should be british and american actors and it should be open auditions and you shouldn’t need experience that way more talented young people can be found and have all there dreams come true – like me :D

  24. why not have nicholas cage come back as the uncle? just sayin things should be much harder than the first right!

  25. I am good at acting I am 12 years old and I take theatre arts so I have lots of experience
