Lyndsy Fonseca Discusses Her Return As 'Katie Deauxma' In KICK-ASS 2
If the following interview with Lyndsy Fonseca is anything to go by, it sounds as if her commitments to Nikita will mean that Kick-Ass' girlfriend 'Katie Deauxma' will have a much smaller role in the sequel. Hit the jump for more details and comments from the actress.
"Somehow I’m supposed to do Kick-Ass 2 this year," Lyndsy Fonseca told IGN Movies at the San Diego Comic-Con last month. "I’m so excited, and I just pray that it all works out! I don’t know. They know that I’m on the show, so it’s not going to be a month of work because I can’t. I can’t do it. But I’ll at least be able to do something, which is very kind of them." As for her thoughts on the screenplay and director Jeff Wadlow, she added: "I read it. I think I read the latest draft -- I don’t think there’s been a new one -- and it was fantastic. It actually plays really well with how Chloe has grown up a little bit, but she’s not yet a young woman. I loved it. I think it’s really good. Jeff] seems incredibly nice though. He’s very excited, and I’m excited. Matthew [Vaughn]’s producing it, but I think it will be kind of cool to have a new point of view for the sequel."
As fans of the comic books will know, Katie and Kick-Ass never actually end up together in the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. series. In the second volume, Red Mist/The Mother F*cker sends his goons to brutally rape her in a shocking attack on a neighbourhood which even sees children gunned down in the streets. While it was unlikely that that would ever make it into the big screen adaptation, the actress actually reveals that her role isn't a particularly large one. "She’s just in the beginning, so far. I’m just happy to be involved. She’s still the strange Katie – somewhat girl next door but has strange, drug-addict boyfriends and works at the needle exchange. Very contradicting personality traits... It’s still that weird!"
