The upcoming sequel to the widely popular comic book based action film Kick-Ass is directed by Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) and prepping to hit theaters this summer
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass' (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.
When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, Kick-Ass 2 stars Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Leguizamo, Lyndsy Fonseca, Robert Emms, Morris Chestnut, Donald Faison, Olga Kurkulina, Lindy Booth, Daniel Kaluuya, Any Nyman and Jim Carrey. Nicholas Cage will reprise his role as Big Daddy, but it has yet to be revealed in what capacity. Universal Pictures will release Kick Ass 2 in theaters on June 28th, 2013.
