‘Kick-Ass 2’ spoilers: Hit Girl vs. Red Mist
HollywoodNews.com: Despite sputtering at the domestic box office with $48.1 million, a sequel to Lionsgate’s cult action film “Kick-Ass” looks to be a reality.
Franchise creator Mark Millar talked about the sequel, “Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall,” with Movieweb. Digital Spy was reading the piece.
“We left things off with [Hit Girl] being adopted by this extremely nice man. He is a cop. And she has to stop killing people,” said Millar.
“She is going to be like Clint Eastwood in ‘Unforgiven,’ where she hasn’t picked up a gun in years.”
“[Red Mist] is a guy who has had his entire family killed by Hit Girl. He heads off and develops his martial arts skills. He learns how to become a better villain,” he added.
“He is going to come back and wreck unholy vengeance on our team. But in reality, he just comes back and gets stoned, and he spends a lot of money. He can’t do anything, so he hires this bad ass girl from Russia, she comes into the story, and her plan is to kill Hit Girl.
“Red Mist becomes like Charles Manson. He goes online and influences a bunch of young villains to go against Kick-Ass and Hit Girl.’”
“Kick-Ass 2” is to be directed by the first installment’s helmer, Matthew Vaughn and slated for release in 2012. However, first Vaughn is busying himself with the comic-book prequel “X-Men: First Class” for Fox.
