Matthew Vaughn Unlikely To Direct KICK-ASS 2
While promoting her latest film, The Woman In Black, Kick-Ass producer Jane Goldman talked a little bit about the potential sequel and weather or not director Matthew Vaughn would return.
People have been waiting for news on the sequel to 2010's smash hit Kick-Ass for a while. Now we are finally getting some, although it doesn't appear to be good news. While talking to MTV producer Jane Goldman said that the only that is for sure on the film right now is that director Matthew Vaughn will NOT return to helm the project. Goldman went on to say that she and Vaughn are not, as of right now, writing the film either but wouldn't be surprised if he got involved in some sort of producing role.
"I think the only thing that is fairly sure is that right now, Matthew doesn't have any plans to direct it. He and I are not currently talking about writing it either. It may well be that Matthew oversees ['Kick-Ass 2'] in a producer role, and I may also be involved in that capacity. I know that there is somebody that Matthew has been talking to who would be interested in writing and directing that. That would be cool."
She did add that she is interested in going back in to the Kick-Ass universe. Saying that it was a wonderful time making the first film and siad it would be great if they could repeat that magic.
"It's very tempting," she added of going back into the "Kick-Ass" universe. "We had such a wonderful time making it. It's such a great bunch of people, people we'd all be incredibly keen to work with again. If we could repeat the experience we had that would be wonderful. I think for whatever reason Matthew feels that he isn't going to be directing that one."
Goldman also went on to say that she loves the second volume of the story that Mark Millar is writing right now. She did however say that she is on the fence on whether or not their film needs a sequel.
