Well this was obvious. In an interview with Collider Aaron Johnson revealed that Kick-Ass 2 will (likely) be rated R, along with confirming that Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz will reprise their respective roles. This really isn’t surprising, considering the source material is pretty graphic as was the previous movie and I doubt the studio would want to sacrifice the character just to earn a quick buck. Along with that, the actor also confirmed that filming will begin this fall (although we already kinda knew that).
Since there’s been talk of it again, will there finally be a Kick-Ass sequel?
It’s pretty much set to go, this Fall. I think now Chloe [Grace Moretz] and Chris [Mintz-Plasse] are on board. I’m certainly set up to do it. Jeff Wadlow is to direct. Yeah, I think it’s going to happen.
Have you gotten to see a script yet?
Yeah, I have.
Will it be a hard R, as far as the rating goes?
Oh, yeah! It keeps the standard, from the first film.
