Chloë Moretz made a real name for herself last year when Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book series, Kick-Ass, came out on the big screen.
Since then, there’s been a lot of talk about the possibility of a sequel, and in a new interview Moretz has done with Movies.com,
She of course made a big impression first time around as Hit-Girl, and will no doubt be doing more of the same if the sequel does go ahead. Millar’s been writing the comic book sequel and has released the first three issues, but whether the film’s sequel would follow the comic book’s sequel remains to be seen.
“Movies.com: Are they going to be able to do Kick-Ass 2 in time for you to be Hit Girl again?
CM: Actually, yeah, but I think I’m going to be a little bit older. I’d like to do it in the next year or two because I think that’s a really good time age-wise. You can show Hit Girl in a different light which would be a lot of fun.
Movies.com: Would you like to revisit her at different ages?
CM: I think it would be fun to show her, because you know her as this 11-year-old assassin, so I think it would be fun to show her as this twisted young adult, this 16-17-year-old Catwoman-y almost, twisted and dark person.
Movies.com: She could have a driver’s license then.
CM: Ex-ACTLY! Hit Girl could be riding Ducatis all over New York City. Duh.”
Sounds pretty damn awesome to me. Moretz is a brilliant young actress, and she’s proven more than once how talented she is in some very different roles, and getting to see her return to Hit-Girl as an older, slightly different version of the character we’ve already seen would be a lot of fun. Some people might question the necessity for a sequel to the film, but I think this would have a lot of potential to be so good like the original, so why not? The official green-light for the film is yet to be lit, but hopefully Moretz knows something the rest of us outside the loop don’t.
