Kick ass Kick-Ass DVD sales kick Kick-Ass 2's ass into gear

Sorry, I just really wanted to write that headline. But yes, according to a recent interview on Radio 5 in the UK, Mark Millar himself has said that KICK-ASS 2 has been given the greenlight due to solid DVD sales. People are still buying DVDs? Who knew?

Anyway, the film will reassemble all the not-dead members of the cast who include (possible spoilers) Aaron Johnson (currently in NOWHERE BOY), Chloe Moretz (currently in LET ME IN), Chris Mintz-Plasse (currently in FRIGHT NIGHT) along with director Matthew Vaughn (currently working on X-MEN: FIRST CLASS). But all of these projects look to wrap fairly soon, so I wouldn't expect us to have to wait eons for the sequel.

The next film, subtitled BALLS TO THE WALL was rumored ever since Millar announced he was writing it, but this is the first real official confirmation we've had the film will be made. As for what to expect, here's a few plot details concerning the revenge of Red Mist. Spoilers ahoy.

This is a guy who has had his entire family killed by Hit Girl. He heads off and develops his martial arts skills. He learns how to become a better villain. That type of thing. He is going to come back and wreck unholy vengeance on our team. But in reality, he just comes back and gets stoned, and he spends a lot of money. He can't do anything, so he hires this bad ass girl from Russia, she comes into the story, and her plan is to kill Hit Girl. Red Mist becomes like Charles Manson. He goes on-line and influences a bunch of young villains to go against Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. The whole thing ends up as a big gang fight like you'd see in The Warriors. There is going to be a big gang fight in the middle of Times Square between all of these costumed heroes. And at the head will be the Red Mist and Hit Girl.

Sounds great to me, and I'm glad to hear this is actually going to work out.

Extra Tidbit: I'm going to miss Cage's Adam West impression.
