“Wanted” creator Mark Millar tells Comic Book Resources that pre-production on the film version of “Kick-Ass” which he co-wrote is almost complete.
The author has been involved as a producer for about eight months and the script was finished six months ago. Casting is now complete with two ‘big names’ attached.
Smaller roles have also been filled, such as “the kids who show up at the end of issue #3 – we just cast the girl, and that was a really tricky one because we needed to find someone who could do martial arts stuff. So the whole movie’s ready to role.”
Filming is scheduled to begin on location in New York this August.
