Newsarama sat down with the critically acclaimed writer and spoke about how work is progressing on the three movie adaptations based on his best selling comic books.
Thanks to Newsarama for the following excerpts.
Talking About The Sequel To The Successful 2010 Movie, Kick-Ass:
“It’s funny, actually, because we knew from the beginning that there would be. We ended the first one with a trailer, practically, for it, with that little teaser at the end. The movie was very, very cheap to make, it only cost 28 million dollars, so we thought, unless we screw up really, really badly here, of course there will certainly be [another] movie. We made a hundred million dollars at the box office, and then another 125 on DVD, so at the moment we’re sitting on 225 million on a 28 million dollar investment. We would like to have done more, because we thought the movie was great. Even though it was a seventh of the price of Iron Man, or whatever, we expected it to do Iron Man money, believe it or not. 225 million we’re happy with, that’s a really good return. Lionsgate [is] happy.”
When Can We Expect To See The Sequel Hit The Big Screen:
“We’ve said from the beginning, of course, we’ll certainly do a sequel. It’s just, when everybody has time. I’m writing the story just now, Matt[hew Vaughn, director of the orginal Kick-Ass film] is finishing X-Men probably in April, he’s out in LA at the moment. We talk about different stuff every day, but almost certainly. We just have to make sure the actors don’t get too old. Chloë [Moretz] in particular. We can’t wait until she’s 15. We don’t want Hit-Girl with kids.”
How Are Things Moving Along On Both The Nemesis And Superior Film Adaptations:
“The Nemesis movie is the next thing we’re all starting to get quite excited about. Hopefully in the next few weeks that’s out with a screenwriter, and hopefully when the screenplay is done in a few weeks time, we can really get moving on that. Superior should be fast-tracked as well. Hopefully have both of those out at around the same time. But what’s nice is that I can just sit back and let other people do all the hard work with that, and just go see the movie and get a free ticket.”
