The Raid director Gareth Evans was interested in making a Hit-Girl movie

01.28.2015

While chatting it up with IGN, creator Mark Millar again said a third KICK-ASS probably isn't going to happen, since KICK-ASS 2 didn't make as much money as the first film. However, the bigger news is there were talks of a solo Hit-Girl movie, and THE RAID director Gareth Evans had a couple of conversations with Millar about helming the film.

Before Kick-Ass 2 came out we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie. We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy. Matthew [Vaughn] still floats it occasionally. I’m very philosophical about it – I’ve done my books and I’m really happy with the work and happy with the films. If anything else happens – gravy.

A Hit-Girl movie directed by Gareth Evans sounds too awesome for words, but even if Evans wasn't busy and the studio was down for it, last year Chloe Moretz said she's done playing the character.

Mark Millar also says while he's not going to be writing any more Kick-Ass stories, he is open to doing a few more Hit-Girl comics. Be warned though, there might be some slight spoilers ahead for those of you haven't read Kick-Ass 3.

Dave Lizewski’s journey had to have an ending because the way I looked at it is if you don’t have Batman’s money or Superman’s powers, you’re going to end up dead pretty fast” he explained. “So the idea of Kick-Ass #520 is ridiculous because he’s going to have been killed in issue 45 or something. So I had to give it a conclusion. For people who haven’t read the book I don’t want to spoil it, but Kick-Ass 3 is the end of Dave’s story.

Now Mindy is another thing – there could be more stuff going on with Mindy. There could be other people who are going to be Kick-Ass as well – that’s hinted at at the end of Kick-Ass 3. But for Dave it’s all over, that’s it. And for me it’s all over as well probably.

I'm not too bummed a sequel to Jeff Wadlow's KICK-ASS 2 is more than likely dead and Millar is finished with the comics, but now all I can think of is how a Gareth Evans directed HIT-GIRL would have looked like. It may sound fantastic on paper, however I am kind of glad Evans is instead working on other projects.

Matthew Vaughn's KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (based on Mark Millar's The Secret Service series) opens on February 13, 2015.

In theory it sounds great but spin offs tend to be less successful as-is, not to mention you're releasing this on the heels of a mediocre sequel. Hit-Girl was awesome but let it be.

They forgot this part of the interview:

IGN: Millar also revealed that we’re unlikely to get another movie because Kick-Ass 2 failed to match the money that the first film made…
“With Kick-Ass 1 we knew we were doing a sequel because the first one cost $28m and made $100m and then did $140m on TV and DVD, so it was a no-brainer – of course there was a Kick-Ass 2. But the second one cost a little less – it cost £24m, but it only made back $60m and with TV money and everything it was slightly in profit. It didn’t lose money. But did

But did it make enough money to justify a third one? You know you’ve always got to listen to the audience, and if people didn’t come out in droves for it, it means there’s no audience.”
END

And yet on his website, Millar was bragging during KA2's horrible opening weekend that there'd be another film no matter what? Glad there isn't, as I hate this property, but why does he seem to guarantee things and then backpedal? Not really fair to the people that enjoy it. And didn't he get famously raked over the coals because he lied about the studio counting early/advanced showings' ticket sales into KA1's weekend tally to allow it to fraudulently edge out How to Train Your Dragon's third or fourth weekend at the top?

Hit Girl was played tremendously by Chloe Mortez and if Matthew Vaughn made Kick-Ass 2 it would've been a hell of a lot better. I saw an advanced screening of Kingsman, and let me tell you, you are in for a treat. Think Kick-Ass + 007 but crazier.

Better off they didn't do this. Kick Ass 2 wasn't as good as the first one and you don't want the character of Hit Girl to be played out.

Here ya go:

"Mr. Evans himself was present for a little Q&A session. According to the man himself, (a bit paraphrasing here) he intended to create an allusion that Bejo's presence in various scenes is associated with temperature drops. It's also the reason why Uco's breath was visible when he took a phone call from Bejo, as if it were freezing in the karaoke. But then he said beforehand that it was the "bullshit" version and the real version is simply because blood just looks fucking good on

Well every Indonesian thought it was stupid and pathetic that a boleh director not from Indo did that - no matter what his creativeness felt like. I grew up there and agree its one of the best Indonesian films because all they produce are horror ripoffs and romantic comedies - but seriously, the guy could have left out the snow….plus, in Indo traffic there would be no car chase scene like that. The advance screening with the Ambassador to Indonesia brought all Indonesian students and their

The advance screening with the Ambassador to Indonesia brought all Indonesian students and their parents and laughed at that. I guess the international audience enjoyed it more than they did.

would love

I would love to see this man direct a massive blockbuster action film. only problem is the actors wouldn't be able to pull off the fighting or action scenes.

I watched the laud films not long ago then watched bourne, i hadn't watched the bourne movies in a while but i used to think the action and fighting in the was good, the raid has ruined Hollywood action movies for me.
