Trio Of Studios Set To “Kick Ass”

Lionsgate, Paramount and Universal are in the running to handle distribution of Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick Ass” reports Risky Biz Blog.

Vaughn financed the superhero vigilante action/comedy independently after some studios found the project’s violence too graphic and some of its dialogue too profanity-laced and opted not to board the project during production.

However two weeks ago the project screened footage at the San Diego Comic-Con to a very warm response. Screenings were held the following week for buys and various studios began to circle the film.
