[Movies] Mark Millar Talks About Editing Kick-Ass 2
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.08.2012



In a post on his MillarWorld Forums, Mark Millar discussed editing Kick-Ass 2 and also provided an update on director Matthew Vaughn, who is rumored to be working on an adaptation of Millar's Secret Service.

On shooting and editing Kick-Ass 2: "Let me tell you that yesterday as I was sitting in Eddie Hamilton's edit suite (think James Coburn's apartment in Our Man Flint) I literally for the first time thought this might actually be BETTER than the original. This was a huge moment for me because there is no bigger fan of the first movie than me. I think it's pretty close to perfect. But there's so much in this, the whole thing so rich, that I honestly think this might be the Empire Strikes Back to Star Wars. I'd seen over 40 mins before, but seeing the edited version of the next 20 mins gave me a very comprehensive look for how the finished movie is going to look and I was actually quite shocked. I won't spoil scenes for anyone who hasn't read the source material (the Hit-Girl series and Kick-Ass 2 comic), but there are so many great moments here. Kubrick said that a great movie has eight terrific moments. I lay in bed this morning and counted fourteen genuine movie-moment scenes. You can look at the book and probably guess these, but they're articulated so beautifully. I was really happy when I came away a couple of weeks back, but the Millar Gang and I were ecstatic when we left Eddie's suite yesterday. People are going to LOVE this and we all had a feeling that this was going to go really wide when it opens next June."

On the rumors about Matthew Vaughn: "Caught up with Vaughn yesterday and got a snoop around his new place before we hit his local and talked about everything from the Star Wars rumours to The Secret Service to the Superior movie he bought the rights to last year. As I explained on CBR yesterday, in an interview done last week, Vaughn departed X-Men because our Secret Service project was being copied by a few scripts doing the round and we didn't want anyone to beat us out there with our own idea. Star Wars has since, of course, announced an Episode 7 and he's been touted as a possible director for that movie. All I can say is that if he DOES get picked to helm the next Star Wars there would be nobody with more passion or enthusiasm for the project."

Here's a synopsis of Kick-Ass 2: In the sequel, after Kick-Ass's insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist, only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation.

The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Jim Carrey. It's based on the Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. comic and will be released on June 28, 2013.
