Kick Ass 2 Will Start Shooting This Summer, Says Mark Millar
In an interview with the Daily Record Scotish writer Mark Millar spilled the beans about his current and upcoming projects:
“We shoot Kick-Ass 2 and American Jesus this summer. Then Matthew (Vaughn) and I have Secret Service, which is a neddy James Bond.”
“Jesus shows up in the middle of the financial crisis, America is in turmoil and the Eurozone is collapsing. They are quite apocalyptic times that we are living in with the gap between rich and poor. It is the reverse of The Omen, which is about a kid who finds out he is the anti-Christ. This is a kid who finds out he is Jesus Christ.””
And somewhere between the lines, there is a brief mention of the upcoming movie adaption of his comic book Jupiter Children’s which, according to Mark Millar will be the biggest sci-fi franchise since Star Wars, involving superheroes in an intergalactic saga that traverses both space and time.
