Earlier today Universal Pictures announced that KICK-ASS 2, the sequel to the 2010 superhero comedy, will be hitting theaters on June 28, 2013!
In addition to this, Deadline reports that two more actors have joined writer/director Jeff Wadlow’s film. The two actors being Morris Chestnut (American Horror Story) and Robert Emms (War Horse). Chestnut will play Hit-Girl’s stepfather Marcus Williams, replacing Omari Hardwick from the first film. Robert Emms has landed the role of Insect-Man, a police officer turned member of the superhero team Justice Forever.
Production is set to begin next month on the film, which will adapt both Millar and Romita’s Kick-Ass 2 and the Hit-Girl spinoff. It will be produced by Matthew Vaughn, who is unable to direct because of his commitment to X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
With all the new cast members that have been announced these few past few weeks this movie definitely has potential to be one hell of a fun movie.
