McLovin ready to 'Kick-Ass'

    August 15, 2008

Things are moving fast and furious on Matthew Vaughn's planned adaptation of Mark Millar's 'Kick-Ass' according to today's Hollywood Reporter.

Although the lead role of high-schooler turned vigilante Dave Lizewski has yet to be cast, two young actors are now up for secondary roles.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse (know in the four corners of the cosmos as "McLovin" in 'Superbad') is in negotiations to play Red Mist, the angry son of a mobster who tries to discover the hero's identity.

Chloe Moretz has signed on to play the super-violent, 11 year old sword-carrying, criminal-decapitating vigilante girl who debuted in the third issue of the series.

According to the report, Vaughn himself is raising some $30 million for the film himself, as the Hollywood studios have cringed in the face of the brutal violence of the books. The director first sought a partner in Sony, who wanted the violence toned down. Other studios who looked at it wanted all the child characters aged up.

The movie is set to film this fall.
