If you were in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, one of the films that made a huge impact was director Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick-Ass”. While the film doesn’t yet have an American distributor, if the reaction to the footage is any indication, studios should bang down the doors to land the rights to this independent comic book movie. If the name “Kick-Ass” sounds familiar, it’s because the movie is based on the Mark Millar/John Romita, Jr. series with the same name.

Anyway, I was able to interview Chloe Moretz at this year’s Comic-Con and she talked about playing Hit Girl, working with Nicolas Cage, filming the action scenes, and if you watch till the end, you might see a surprise appearance by Clark Duke and Kristen Bell. Take a look after the jump:
