yancy-butler-kick-ass-2First up, Heat Vision reports that Butler will return as the mother of Chris D’Amico (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), better known as Red Mist.  The film is beefing up its cast ahead of the planned Toronto shoot this September.  The sequel will also shoot in New York.  Mintz-Plasse will also return, along with Chloe Moretz and Aaron Johnson reprising their previous roles.  New additions include Donald Faison as Doctor Gravity and John Leguizamo as Red Mist’s bodyguard.  Be sure to read up on our recent interview with Mintz-Plasse here and check out the new poster for Kick-Ass 2 here.

Heat Vision also reports that Brown will join Milo, a picture that centers on a man who discovers he has a demon living in his intestines.  Marino stars as the afflicted individual who gives the demon permission to come out during therapy and names it Milo.  He attempts to take back control of his life and prevent the demon from controlling him.  Brown will star as Marino’s character’s intern.  The picture, produced by Jay and Mark Duplass, will be directed by first-timer Jacob Vaughn.  Vaughn and Benjamin Hayes wrote the script.
