Chloe Moretz Talks Kick AssUncategorized — By Geeker on September 19, 2008 4:19 pm
Chloe Moretz is in Toronto working on Kick Ass and has posted an update on her personal blog about its progress.
Well, I’m here in Toronto now. We left London a week ago today! Toronto is a beautiful city and I am having fun. It may be the cleanest city I’ve ever been in. We’re in a cute little area where we can walk to everything. It was a bummer though cause we came in on the tail of the Toronto FIlm Festival so we didn’t get to attend any of the screenings or carpets. Almost all of the cast is here now. I had to come early to do a bunch of training. Aaron is here though (he plays Dave/Kick Ass). He’s so cool. I think everybody is going to love love love him as Kick Ass. He is sooooooooo perfect! He just cracks me up. Just wait, you’ll love him. I got to me Chris (Red Mist) who is better known as McLovin when we were in London and he is great too.
I am working sooooooooooooo hard here with my training. Get this, they are taking me to the Toronto Circus School everyday for 2 hours or physical conditioning. My trainer is literally working me so hard. But it’s all good. I’m getting in great shape and my flexibility is getting great. The funnest thing is they may let me fly on the flying trapeze in a week or so. That makes me sooooo excited. I can’t imagine doing that but I can’t wait! The key is I have to get my head stunt people to come fly too! They are so gonna fly too, I’m making sure of it! I would LOVE to get Matthew Vaughn (My director) to fly on the trapeze with me too but I don’t know if I can make that happen. I’m sure going to try so I keep you updated. That one will be a bit tougher though. I bet if Mark Millar (the comic book creator of Kick Ass) comes over from Scotland that I could get him on that Trapeze! He’s so fun. I havn’t gotten my finished Hit Girl costume yet. I’ve had several fittings and it is going to ROCK! Just wait, Hit Girl is so BAAAAADDDDD! She is going to be so cool (probably too cool for me! Haha) but I cannot wait to get in the final costume with full hair and makeup and see what I look like. This film is going to ROCK! The writer (Jane Goldman) is the COOLEST lady I’ve ever met. She wears the coolest clothes and her hair is bright PINK! I love it! She just keeps making the script better and better. The cool part is that so many people are working on this script, Matthew, Jane and Mark and it is sooooooooooooo good. The comic books have almost all sold out (I’ve been told) but I have all 4!
Well, I start shooting on Sunday here in Toronto and Aaron starts shooting on Friday. We will move back to London on October 5th. I have a few night shoots in early October so that will be fun! School is tough but I’m getting through it. Math is still pretty easy since we are still in review. I started school on September 8th. This year my favorite subject is Ancient Civilizations. It is amazing. I have almost finished The Candy Shop Wars which I LOVE and want to make into a movie! My next novel is The Hatchett. I can’t wait to read it. Well, I gotta go do more school and then head off to the Circus to condition. After that I go and learn my stunt fighting! I have this cool stunt trainer named Pong (He stunted with Jackie Chan) and he is AWESOME. He is tough but he is the BEST! I did some cool stunt fighting yesterday so by the end of this training Hit Girl is gonna be AWESOME!
Kick-Ass, written by Millar and drawn by John Romita Jr., follows a high school dweeb who attempts to reinvent himself as a real-world costumed superhero named Kick-Ass who seems doomed to failure because he’s not athletic or coordinated until he runs into real bad guys with real weapons.
