Is Mother Russia a Villain in KICK-ASS 2?

     July 18, 2012


At the end of Kick-Ass, it looked like Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) was being set up as the villain for the sequel.  The actor is slated to return for Kick-Ass 2, but he won’t be the only baddie.  According to Moviehole, the production is currently casting for the role of “Mother Russia”, who serves as Red Mist’s bodyguard.  Casting directors are look for an “extremely tall, large, fit female of 25 to 40 to play the part.”  If you take away the height factor (something that can be remedied with cinematography; just ask Tom Cruise), then the answer seems pretty obvious.

Hit the jump for more on the character.  Written and directed by Jeff Wadlow, the film also stars Aaron Johnson and Chloe MoretzKick-Ass 2 starts filming in September.

Here’s the description the production is sending out to agencies [via Moviehole]:

“Classic Villain. An ex-KBG officer who is now being paid by the week by Chris to fight in his group — she is easily the most skilled and just a ruthless killer in general. Described as a ‘roided-out female bodybuilder, she needs to be extremely physically imposing and muscular, though still come across as feminine. As tall as possible (6ft and over only). Indicate height on submission.”

Again, I’m not sure why the height thing is such a big deal.  It looks like the production is looking for the second-coming of Brigitte Nielsen, and I wouldn’t hold my breath.  The production should try and land Gina Carano even though she’s 5’8″.  It’s harder to be physically imposing and muscular than it is to be tall.
