Matthew Vaughn is working on a Hit Girl movie that will serve as a Kick-Ass prequel.
I wonder if people would be excited for a Hit Girl movie, specifically a prequel and not a spinoff. If they go with a prequel do you get Nicolas Cage back, and who do you cast for a younger Chloe Grace Moretz to play Mindy McCready?
Another thought is do people want this to lead into Kick-Ass 3, because Kick-Ass 2 wasn’t very well received. I mean, I liked it, but the ultra violence of the series turned some people off.
Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn has revealed that a Hit-Girl prequel film is in development.
Vaughn told Yahoo! Movies that he’s “not happily done with the [Kick-Ass] franchise.” He went on to reveal the following: “We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl [sic] and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy…If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn’t like ‘Kick-Ass 2’ and then we can go off and make ‘Kick-Ass 3’.”
Addressing the mixed response to Kick-Ass 2 — which opened to only $13.3 million stateside — Vaughn expressed his hopes for the Hit-Girl movie to save the franchise, noting, “I think we’ve got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with ‘Kick-Ass’.”
We have heard about a Hit-Girl movie before, though it had previously seemed to be an unlikely proposition. It looks like that is no longer the case.
