After yesterday’s news that Universal was courting Jim Carrey for Jeff Wadlow’s Kick-Ass 2, now Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead) is in talks to star as yet another hero.  Carrey was sought to play Colonel Stars,  who forms the heroic team, Justice Forever.  While Carrey may not take the role, Booth is currently in negotiations to star as the Night Bitch, a member of Justice Forever.

Kick-Ass 2, which features the return of stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, stars filming next month in Toronto and New York.  Hit the jump for more on Booth, Night Bitch and a recap of the casting so far.

night-bitch-kick-ass-2Heat Vision reports that Booth is in talks to play Night Bitch, a hero who joins Justice Forever after being inspired by Kick-Ass and hopes to avenge the murder of her sister. With the inclusion of Colonel Stars (which only has a slim chance of being played by Carrey, according to the report) and now the potential casting of Night Bitch, it seems as if Justice Forever is going to play a central part to the storyline.  It’s possible we’ll get to see the group take on a human trafficking organization, similar to a storyline in the comics.

With Johnson returning as Kick-Ass, Moretz reprising her role as Hit-Girl and Mintz-Plasse antagonizing as The Red Mist once again, let’s take a look at some of the newcomers.  Donald Faison (Scrubs) has joined as Doctor Gravity, another hero inspired by Kick-Ass who accompanies him on his patrols.  John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge) has also joined the picture as the enigmatic “Javier.  Robert Emms (War Horse) has also been rumored to star as Insect Man, another member of Justice Forever who is a cop in his daily life. 

Nicolas Cage and Yancy Butler also return to the sequel as Big Daddy and Angie D’Amico, respectively. Look for Kick-Ass 2 to debut on June 28th, 2013.
