@P862010- Amen. This has failure written all over it, which sucks, because I LOVED the first one.

Oh man this is a poor choice - Personally I would have love to seen Gareth Evans (Director of The Raid: Redemption) take a crack at this!

Matthew Vaughan needed to make this sequel. His style and vision as director is what made the first work so well.

ModernAvenger: Exactly what I was thinking.

Hit Girl is in Dark Shadows movie of Tim Burton.

Kick Ass = Hit Girl = Chloe Grace Mortez

without any of these Kick Ass 2 = FAIL!!!!

I'm shocked this is going to be made. Domestically, this film did not do well. It made money internationally, but still.

this and wanted don't need sequel
its type of movie that only works once

werty - 5/9/2012, 6:12 AM
Just as I thought. They waited for so long so that Chloe Moretz can be 16

Don't know about the choice of director, also wondering why Lionsgate isn't releasing it.

Still, if Vaughn has faith in this guy, it could be good.
