Kick Ass doing what the title says

Matthew Vaughn saw his movie version of KICK ASS turned down by every major studios back when it was only in script stage, being told it was too violent and lewd. But when footage screened at Comic Con had folks on their feet in cheers, things changed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Biz Blog, 3 studios are currently duking it out to pick up the film, even with a high 7-figure price tag and subsequent percentage deal for Vaughn. Lionsgate, Paramount and Universal are the ones trying to give Matt the last laugh.

The idea is not only to make money (which it always is), but to make LOTS of money as studios feel the character and comic's popularity added to the successful footage screening opens the door for the other F word: Franchise. As far as fans are concerned though, it simply means we finally might get an official release date soon enough.

Extra Tidbit: I still say Nic Cage is way off to play Big Daddy, but hey - if that's what it takes to sell the darn thing...

Cage as Big Daddy...

John Q Public need names to latch onto... I said, as soon as the Watchmen casting was announced, shoulda had ONE of the cast as a 'name'. Like Bruce Willis as The Comedian... Just someone to draw in the regular folk...

Vaughn: nyah ha ha hA!

He deserves to be married to a supermodel. Imagine what he could have done with Xmen if Fox had any brains at all.

Release date is...

March 5th or 12th 2010... same date they released other "mature" comic material like 300 and WATCHMEN. Gives them something to reference in their marketing.

Totally agree. Doesn't look nearly as cool as the original design. But whatever, the movie'll still kick ass (no pun intended).
