Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn has announced a Hit-Girl focused prequel to the first film. Vaughn sat down with Yahoo! Movies to talk about the new film.
Vaughn says he’s “not happily done with the [Kick-Ass] franchise.” He went on to say “We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl [sic] and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy…If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn’t like ‘Kick-Ass 2’ and then we can go off and make ‘Kick-Ass 3’.”
Kick-Ass 2 didn’t do all that well when it came out only seeing #13.3 million in the US. Vaughn hopes this new Hit-Girl movie will breathe new life into the franchise. “I think we’ve got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with ‘Kick-Ass’.”
I think it would be interesting to see a prequel to this film before Kick-Ass was Kick-Ass. Hit-Girls origin is an interesting one and seeing it on the big screen should delight comic and movie fans alike.
