Kick-Ass 2 Screenwriter: Movie Is a Long Way Off
01.24.11 by Ryan
Last September, Scottish comic book writer Mark Millar made a bold claim that the sequel to Kick-Ass, the adaptation of the comic book he co-created, would start production "in nine months" coinciding with the end of director Matthew Vaughn's work on the upcoming X-Men: First Class. Kick-Ass actor Aaron Johnson disagreed, countering that he thought the plan for the sequel, titled Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, was to "hold off and wait for that anticipation," while fellow cast members Lyndsy Fonseca and Chloe Moretz also claimed that the sequel was further away than Millar had said.
Kick-Ass screenwriter Jane Goldman is the latest to punch a hole in Millar's claim, responding on her Twitter account about reports that she was currently writing Kick-Ass 2.
Saw a few erroneous reports today that I'm currently writing Kick Ass 2 script – sorry if anyone's disappointed, but not true. Currently....writing for 2 other projects, then on to lovely Matthew V's next thing (right now, looks unlikely to be KA2) when X-Men post-prod' ends.
Responding to a follower's question, Goldman revealed that she wouldn't be against returning to writer the sequel. "If Matthew Vaughn directs it, I'll be there," Goldman tweeted. "If someone else does, I won't."
The typically verbose Millar has yet to reply to Goldman's statement on his Twitter account.
