Jane Goldman Confirms She and Matthew Vaughn are Out of Kick Ass 2

6 Comments

Jane GoldmanBeen waiting for that “Kick Ass” sequel? Well you might eventually get it (the film did gross just around the $100 million mark worldwide, not counting DVD sales, so I think it’s safe to say it was a moderate hit, and that’s always been enough for Hollywood to greenlight a sequel), but it will most likely be without original writer and director Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn.

Speaking to HeyUGuys at the UK red carpet premiere of her latest film, James Watkins’ “The Woman in Black”, the fiery red Goldman confirmed that Vaughn was out of “Kick Ass 2″, and as a result, so is she. You can see what she has to say below. I’ve even cued the clip up for ya, cause that’s how nice I am.

Mark Millar, who created the comic book, has already written the comic book sequel from which the movie sequel would be base on. The ballsy titled “Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall” finds teenage superhero Kick Ass once again teaming up with Hit Girl to face new foes with predictably cussing-up-a-storm and bloody results.

    Loved the original comic (even though it had a downer of an ending) and loved the first film. Hoefully someone will do the second but who knows. And may i just say DAMN Jane Goldman you are F-I-N-E!!!!

      This is disconcerting, especially since Vaughn has proven to be one hell of a superhero film-director. Well, here’s hoping this will free him up to work on the X-MEN: FIRST CLASS sequel :) Oh and yes……Jane Goldman is FINE AS FUCK!!!!! And she can definitely write her ass off (KICK-ASS & X-MEN: FIRST CLASS were great and THE WOMAN IN BLACK looks awesome). And, apparently, Goldman was a lingerie model for Fantasie bras ;) She kind of reminds me of a British Diablo Cody but without the overdose of self-indulgence.

          Lol don’t get me wrong, I think Cody is a decent writer (I was very impressed the first time I saw JUNO) but it just seems like she’s trying to be hip, and cool, and witty by NOT TRYING to be hip, and cool, and witty…..if that makes any sense. Kind of like the “Gilmore Girls”……that rapid-fire, pulp cultury dialogue is getting stale. It’s like everybody’s tryna write like Joss Whedon or Quentin Tarantino now.
