Kick-Ass fans, get ready for some bad news. MTV is reporting that Matthew Vaughn is unlikely to direct a follow up to the 2010 superhero cult hit. Until now, co-writers Jane Goldman and Vaughn have mentioned they would be interested in a sequel, but only if it could top the first.
"I think the only thing that is fairly sure is that right now, Matthew doesn't have any plans to direct it. He and I are not currently talking about writing it either. It may well be that Matthew oversees ['Kick-Ass 2'] in a producer role, and I may also be involved in that capacity. I know that there is somebody that Matthew has been talking to who would be interested in writing and directing that. That would be cool."
"It's very tempting," she added of going back into the "Kick-Ass" universe. "We had such a wonderful time making it. It's such a great bunch of people, people we'd all be incredibly keen to work with again. If we could repeat the experience we had that would be wonderful. I think for whatever reason Matthew feels that he isn't going to be directing that one."
"My own feeling is that I love Mark Millar's follow-up to the comic. I love the second volume of the comic, but whether the movie itself needs a sequel, I'm a little on the fence about that."
