Mark Millar Talks Kick AssUncategorized — By Geeker on September 4, 2008 1:51 pm
Mark Millar talked to Newsarama about the upcoming Kick Ass Movie as well as doing more editions of the comic.
“Kick-Ass is the only thing that I feel I could never get bored with – I genuinely love doing that, and already have the sequel worked out for the movie and the comic, because the story ends in a way that is so completely going into another one,” the writer said. “So Kick-Ass is the only thing I see as a franchise that will just run and run and run, but everything else I see as being quite self-contained.”
Three more names have been added to the cast of Kick Ass. Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson and Lyndsy Fonseca. Aaron Johnson will play the main ‘dweeb’ character. Nicolas Cage will play an ex-cop who turns his daughter into a PUNISHER like character to fight the mob and Lyndsy Fonseca will play the eye candy.
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.
