Vaughn's Kick Ass film moving
The last news we heard on the film adaptation of Kick-Ass was that Matthew Vaughn was going to direct. Mark Millar wrote the comic book as well as Wanted, which has been adapted and hits cinemas shortly.
At a premiere for Wanted Mark Millar gave an update on the film of Kick-Ass, and it seems to be moving on quite quickly.
Comic Book Resources, through firstshowing.net caught up with Mark Millar and asked how Kick-Ass was going. All we really knew before was that Matthew Vaughn was writing a script with Jane Goldman, and that Vaughn would direct:
I'm working as a producer on Kick-Ass as well, so I've been involved for about eight months, believe it or not. The comic didn't come out until February, but we made the deal on the movie back in December. The script was finished six months ago, and it starts filming on location in New York in August. So it's moving really fast
They even have a cast sorted as well but he's not giving anything away on that front.
The casting's all been done, and everything's all in line now with that. There's two big names attached, which I can't mention so we can get on the cover of Variety. And now we've got everyone. The kids who show up at the end of issue #3 - we just cast the girl, and that was a really tricky one because we needed to find someone who could do martial arts stuff. So the whole movie's ready to role
I haven't read the comic but it tells the story of a 15 year old boy who wants to be a superhero. Only problem being he doesn't have any superpowers. He ploughs on regardless though, but ends up in trouble. I couldn't even hazard a guess at casting, guess we'll have to be patient. Anyone read the comic book, is it any good?
