Default Kick-Ass 2

http://www.deadline.com/2012/05/kick...s-jeff-wadlow/

Quote:
Universal Pictures is in talks to make Kick-Ass 2, with Jeff Wadlow directing his script. I’m told the intention is to get the film in production by August. Discussions are just getting underway with such original castmembers as Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and they will have to be signed to new deals to reprise their roles. The raucous 2010 film was directed by Matthew Vaughn; it was made for $28 million and grossed $48.1 million domestic and $103 million worldwide. The original was released by Lionsgate but became a free ball controlled by Vaughn. He can’t direct the sequel because of his commitments to his X-Men: First Class follow-up, but he is backing it and is fully supportive of handing over the reins. Wadlow, who wrote and directed 2005′s Cry Wolf, wrote the Kick-Ass 2 script for Vaughn, and it has already come before Universal’s green-light committee. I expect a deal to be closed shortly. Wadlow is repped by WME.

I'm not too crazy about the new director.

I wonder how they'll market someone like Hit-Girl now, in light of recent gun drama happening across the country?

I don't think it will make much difference. Django went on pretty much as planned.
It's all fantasy - involving a youg person influenced by life's situation and her dad - but still fantasy

If Jim Carrey is in the movie does that mean it'll suck? I don't remember the last time I saw him in a good movie.

Worse still, when was the last time you saw him in a comic book movie?

Nicolas Cage was great in Kick-Ass. And his track record hasn't been good either. So, as Ramplate said, they're trying to replicate that. HOWEVER, Jim Carrey, unlike Cage, always delivers a solid performances. Just because Carrey has made a few clunkers doesn't mean he's been doing bad acting.

Cage has a spotty track record mainly because of poor direction and worse material.

No, it'll suck because its a sequel to Kick Ass.

I am not really sure why it will suck because it's sequel to Kick-Ass? If it's your opinion that the first movie sucked, than that is your opinion. Why try to bring the excitement down for other people who are fans.

I personally loved the first comic and movie. I am very excited for the sequel. I have some apprehensions for the sequel because of the new director. I liked the trailer, and from it it looks like Jim Carrey might steal the show. I just hope it's a good movie. At least from the trailer they look like they are staying very close to the comic, which is a good thing IMO.

Here is the link on comingsoon for the trailer.

Batman Forever is still my favourite live action Batman movie of all time.

I hate Tim Burton's Batman movies that are so dark even the snow is navy blue/black and Nolan's Batman movies are good but take themselves way too serious (Ironic that his Joker asked the question, "Why so serious?")

I prefer a more serious/grounded approach to Batman which is why TDK is my favorite Batman movie. Batman Forever wasn't as bad as people make it out to be but neither was Batman Returns. At the end of the day, everyone has a different expectation of what a Batman film should be. However, if there's someone who genuinely liked Batman & Robin (and not in a so bad it's good kind of way) I'm betting they're retarded or as my friend's g/f once said "the correct term is MR!". Oh yeah about Kick-Ass 2, it doesn't have that slick visual aesthetic that the original gave us or Matthew Vauhgn's direction but it has Jim Carrey having fun in a role which is something I haven't seen in a long time. Ticket sold.
