Christopher Mintz-Plasse Talks KICK-ASS 2

     July 17, 2011


Like many of you, I loved Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass.  And even though the film made almost $100 million worldwide, talk of a sequel is just that…talk.  There seems to be no real movement on the property even as Mark Millar releases new issues featuring the colorful characters.

Anyhow, the other day I was on the set of writer/director Maggie Carey’s The To Do List (formerly titled The Hand Job) and was able to participate in a group interview with Christopher Mintz-Plasse (he played Red Mist in Kick-Ass).  Eventually we asked him about Kick-Ass 2 and he revealed that’s been reading the comic and still hopes to be able to make the movie.  Hit the jump for what he said.

Look for the full interview with Mintz-Plasse when the embargo lifts.

Question:  Have you been reading the sequel as Mark’s been publishing it?

Christopher Mintz-Plasse:  Yeah. I haven’t seen the new one.

Do you look at it and go, “Oh, god, please…”

Mintz-Plasse:  Please make this movie!

Cause what a role they’ve given me.

Mintz-Plasse:  Yeah! I talked to Matthew and he’s like, “I don’t know if I would ever direct it, but I would definitely be on board to produce it. And I’ve thought, Eli Roth would be such a cool director for this. Or someone who hasn’t done a comic book movie but gets horror ‘cause it’s very violent. Very bloody. But Chloe’s working up a storm, man. She’s non-stop. So, who knows if we’ll ever do it? I know I would love to, and I think Aaron would love to. I’m sure Chloe would, but we’re all just kind of busy right now.
