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