Wadlow has said: “I think the most important thing that’s gonna change from the Kick-Ass 2 comic to Kick-Ass 2 the movie was just really finding an emotional story to tell. Because what I certainly loved about the first film, and what I think elevated it above most comic book adaptations, is the heart and the emotion in the film. It was sort of my challenge as the film maker and storyteller to find something as emotional in the second film and I think we have some stuff that people are gonna really respond to.”
He goes on to say that Hit-Girl will play a much more prominent role in the second movie after her scene stealing role in the original. However, a slight spanner in the works may be that Chloe Grace-Moretz’s career has come a long way since 2010 and after lead roles in Let Me In and the upcoming Hick, as well as major roles in Dark Shadows and Hugo, the young actress is somewhat in demand.
She is also reported to be taking the lead in a fresh take on Stephen King’s Carrie, which is itself timetabled for a 2013 release, which could lead to a bit of a scheduling conflict with Kick-Ass 2. It remains to be seen if she will be able to fit the shooting of both movies into her already busy schedule or if perhaps Kick Ass 2 will have to be pushed back to accommodate her. Fingers crossed though they will be able to get her on board.
