Exclusive: Aaron Johnson talks KICK-ASS

     July 21, 2009


A lot of you haven’t heard about director Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick-Ass”. That’s going to change over the next few days. The reason is, of course, Comic-Con.

On Thursday afternoon, Vaughn will be world premiering footage in Hall H from his independent comic-book movie, but with a cast featuring Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Clark Duke and Mark Strong, you have to wonder how long it’ll be an independent as some studio is going to buy this thing after the crowd goes crazy.

Anyway, I was recently in London and got a chance to speak with Aaron Johnson on the set of his latest film “Chatroom” and he talked about making “Kick-Ass” and a lot more. It’s after the jump so take a look:

“If you think of an eleven-year-old girl with two samurai swords cutting people’s heads off saying, ‘What cunt’s next?’ then that’s the sort of film you’re into.”

I cannot wait. Here’s the synopsis and Aaron. Look for my full interview about “Chatroom” closer to that film’s release.

The movie centers on a high school dweeb named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a superhero even though he has no athletic ability or coordination. Things change when he eventually runs into real bad guys with real weapons.
