Recently filmmaker Matthew Vaughn announced plans to get the “Kick-Ass” franchise going again with a new film and series, along with a potential solo “Hit-Girl” film spin-off that would either show Mindy Macready in her (very) young days, or several years after the events of “Kick-Ass 2”.
If wasn’t clear if Chloe Grace Moretz would be asked to return to play the character, but the actress appeared at the Provincetown Film Festival this weekend and confirmed she had no interest in returning to the role:
“I love the franchise, I think the first movie was really, really special. I wish the second one had been handled in a little bit of a different way. Because I think we were all kind of looking forward to something a little different than what happened with it all. As much as I love the character of Hit-Girl, I think she lives and survives in Kick-Ass, and I kind of want to keep her there. I kinda wanna keep everyone’s mind in Kick-Ass. So I don’t think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, at least I don’t think with Hit-Girl in it.”
Despite Vaughn’s comments suggesting there’s progress, no talent either in front of or behind-the-scenes has been attached to any of the proposed films beyond Vaughn himself in a producing capacity.
