The sequel to the highly-anticipated movie is supposed to start filming in September as they're aiming for a May 2013 release. Matthew Vaughn (the guy who pretty much made the original) will no longer be directing but will return as a producer and has hand picked Jeff Wadlow ( http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0905592/
) to write the script and direct it. The young director's track record is far from impressive but he seems enthusiastic about it plus his direction here seems solid.
The story in the sequel follows Kick-Ass joining a group of superheroes, Mindy trying to lead a normal life and Red-Mist changing his identity to The Moterfucker and returning with a large pack of villains to inflict his revenge. The movie will adapt not just the Kick-Ass 2 comic but also the upcoming Hit-Girl one which ties the two Kick-Ass comics together and offers a more in-depth look at Chloe's character.
