‘Kick-Ass’ Director Developing Hit-Girl Prequel
Judging by what Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn revealed, fans can expect not one, but two new films from the franchise, if things go his way.
Vaughn is intent on bringing the franchise back and making it better for fans. Kick-Ass was a huge hit, grossing $96.1 million from a $30 million budget, while Kick-Ass 2 opened to more negative reviews and a lower overall box office, pulling in $60.7 million from a $28 million budget.
“We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy,” he told Yahoo Movies. “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… I think we’ve got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with Kick-Ass.”
See what else Vaughn reveals in the Yahoo interview below:
So what do you think of a Hit-Girl prequel film? Chloe Grace Moretz, who played Hit Girl in the first 2 Kick-Ass movies, is undoubtedly too old to do a prequel now and have it make sense, so how do you think they should handle it?
You know the drill. We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
