Will the Kick-Ass saga continue with the start of a 3rd episode? Chloë Grace Moretz, interpreter of Mindy aka Hit-Girl, responds!
In 2010, Kick-Ass first of the name blasted the superhero film, revealing to the world two future stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloë Grace Moretz. The feature film directed by Matthew Vaughn was vulgar, irreverent and subversive, going very far in graphic violence.
With an average budget of $ 30 million, it brings in 100 internationally. It did not take more to convince the production to start a sequel. 12 years old at the time, Chloë Moretz is delighted, she who dreamed of playing a superheroine.
“About a month before I got the role, Wanted hit theaters. There were posters on every bus, and I told my mom I dreamed of a role like Angelina Jolie’s. , a girl who takes matters in hand! These roles are rare, especially for teenagers, but I was lucky. Kick-Ass introduced itself, and when I knew I had the part, I screamed for three days! I was dying to make such a fantastic movie and wear a superheroine costume “, confided the young actress.
However, seeing a teenager knocking out the bad guy with such aggressiveness was not very well received by part of the audience, fueling a controversy around the violence and vulgarity of the film. “In the first installment, I was only rude 6 times. But each time, it was for important moments and it made real sense. In this new movie, it’s the same. It’s not not like she slaps insults all the time because she’s older. She only does that when she’s Hit-Girl, never when she’s Mindy. “, supported the actress in 2013.
As for Jim Carrey, who played the character of Colonel Stars and Stripes in this second episode, he completely denied the film because of its ultra-violence. If the actor assumes his participation in the feature film, the Sandy Hook shooting on December 14, 2012, dissuaded him from taking part in the promotion of the film, causing controversy.
“I did Kick-Ass 2 a month before Sandy Hook, and now I fully realize that I cannot condone this level of violence. I apologize to everyone.”Jim Carrey explained on Twitter.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School Slaughter, or Newtown Slaughter, caused 28 deaths, including 20 children, at a school in the village of Sandy Hook, on the outskirts of Newtown, Connecticut, United States.
“I wanted to say that I apologize to everyone else involved in the film. I’m not ashamed of it, but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”, he added. The withdrawal of the star of The Mask was a blow to the production, which relied heavily on him to ensure the promotion of the feature film. In addition, filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, who left to shoot X-Men The Beginning, had to give up his director’s chair to Jeff Wadlow, which had greatly delayed filming.
Results ? Kick-Ass 2 crashes at the box office, suffering a terrible failure. It only garners $ 60 million in global revenue for a budget of $ 30 million. After this shipwreck, Chloë Moretz ends up denying the film, clearly putting the brakes on a potential 3rd part: “I think we should stop there. I’m done with that character. He was very cool, but I think there won’t be any more ‘Kick-Ass’ movies., she had asserted.
“As much as I can love the character of Hit-Girl, I think she has to continue to live and survive within Kick-Ass, and I kinda want to be left outside of other projects. don’t think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, or at least that there won’t be Hit-Girl in it “, estimated Chloë Moretz.
More than 8 years after the release of the second opus, the actress has visibly reflected, returning to her remarks at the microphone of Jimmy Fallon in her program “The Tonight Show”.
I think it would be really fun to see what happened to Hit-Girl and what happened to her as an adult.
“I think it would be really fun to see what happened to Hit-Girl and what happened to her as an adult. But everything would have to be perfect.”, she said. She then goes on to expand her response by saying that the original cast had to be back as well as the production crew for the first film.
Will Matthew Vaughn hear Chloë Moretz’s turnaround regarding Kick-Ass and think about a 3rd part? Nothing is less certain given that he is very busy with his future feature film, an action comedy starring Henry Cavill called Argylle. As for his King’s Man Première Mission, he arrives at the cinema on December 29th.
Moreover, before tackling this prequel, the director wanted to do the same with Kick-Ass: “We would love to go back. We are working on a prequel idea around Big Daddy and Hit-Girl where we would learn how they became vigilantes and we came up with a pretty cool idea. By doing that, we hope to satisfy the people who didn’t like Kick-Ass 2 so they could do Kick-Ass 3 “, he assured in 2015.
