Jim Carrey may be losing patience with the speed (or lack thereof) of the sequel to “Dumb and Dumber” (really, though, what is the hold-up on that thing? Are they waiting for a “great” script or something?), but if he wants it, the sequel to “Kick-Ass” is there for the taking.
Word is, the makers of “Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall” have offered the funnyman the role of The Colonel in the upcoming superhero sequel. In the comics, The Colonel helps to “galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil.” I guess that means he’s a good guy. Who likes chicken. (I’m just guessing on that last part.)
Jeff Wadlow penned the script for “Kick-Ass 2″ and will also be directing, taking over for Matthew Vaughn, who currently has his hands full with his own superheroes on “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, the sequel to his hit “X-Men: First Class”.
Carrey is, of course, no stranger to superheroes. He once famously (or is that infamously?) played The Riddler in Joel Schumacher’s 1995 comic book masterpiece “Batman Forever”. And before that, he literally donned the mask in 1994’s surprise hit “The Mask”, a far-out superhero movie based on a comic book.
“Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall” has Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse all back, and is scheduled for 2013.
And oh look, apparently this isn’t the first time Carrey has flirted with the “Kick-Ass” universe:
