UPDATE: RUMOR: Olga Kurkulina Cast As MOTHER RUSSIA In KICK-ASS 2
There are multiple rumors spreading across the web that Russian body builder Olga Kurkulina (who cuts an imposing figure) has secured the role of Mother Russia in Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2. Confirmed!
This rumor has been floating around for quite a few days already but more and more reports are coming in that Olga Kurkulina is the woman pictured in the photo below with Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Kurkulina stands an impressive 6'2" and is a chiseled 200 lbs of pure muscle. Keep in mind, nothing has been officially confirmed yet so keep this one filed under the rumor section for now. Principal photography for the film just gt underway today so expect SOMEONE to be officially announced for the role very soon. Here's the casting call which went out back in July: "Classic Villain. An ex-KBG officer who is now being paid by the week by Chris to fight in his group — she is easily the most skilled and just a ruthless killer in general. Described as a ‘roided-out female bodybuilder, she needs to be extremely physically imposing and muscular, though still come across as feminine. As tall as possible (6ft and over only). Indicate height on submission.”
(UPDATE) Per BleedingCool, we now have confirmation that Olga has indeed won what is sure to be a scene stealing role in Kick-Ass 2.
