It has been a long time since we have had any 'Kick-Ass' movie news come in, but today we have our first real look at Chloe Moretz as the pre-teen assassin Hit Girl. This character spends her time training with her father Big Daddy and then puts her skills to the test by going out and slicing up bad guys with her samurai swords. She is best described as "Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman and Uma Thurman rolled into one… She kills, I think, 20 people in a minute."
Kick-Ass is based on the comic book by Mark Millar and is being directed by Matthew Vaughn. If you are not reading the comic book, I suggest you jump on in right now. It is one of my favorite comic books, because it really does speak to the geek in all of us and it's just a great story. Check out the plot summary below the photo. I am really looking forward to seeing these characters come too life. This movie is going to be incredible. I have also added a few more photos that you may have missed out on.
