‘Kick-Ass 2’ is Happening, According to Comic Creator
If there’s one thing you should know about Kick-Ass and Wanted creator Mark Millar, it’s that the guy loves to talk. He’s a dude who has big ideas and isn’t afraid to share them – to the point where it’s sometimes hard to differentiate between what’s really going on and what Millar wishes was really going on. That said, he’s obviously closer to the whole Kick-Ass movie situation than we are (he wrote the comic the film was based on), and so I suppose we should believe him when he says the sequel has been greenlit and will go into production following director Matthew Vaughn’s commitment to helming X-Men: First Class.
Millar told BBC Radio (via Bleeding Cool), “The estimate is [Kick-Ass] will do 100 to 150 million on DVD based on the American sales, you know, so it'll end up making a quarter of a billion on a 28 million investment. So It should be okay. So the sequel's greenlit, we can go ahead and do the follow up now, you know. The first made so much compared to what it cost it would be crazy not to."
Doesn’t exactly sound 100% done deal, but I agree that the first film was successful enough to at least consider a sequel depending on how Millar’s next Kick-Ass comic turns out. In other Millar news, during the same interview he also said that Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt would be ideal candidates to star in the adaptation of his comic Nemesis, which Tony Scott is attached to direct, about an ex-billionaire who decides to become a costumed criminal. Whether that will actually happen is anyone’s guess.
Do you think they should make Kick-Ass 2? Was the first one popular enough to warrant a sequel in your opinion? Sound off below …
