‘Kick Ass 2’ is getting close to production. Both the writing and directing duties are being taken over by Jeff Wadlow. Wadlow wrote and directed ‘Cry_Wolf’ which is only genius if you saw it in the same room as myself, Tigs, Dunn, and Alex. He also directed ‘Never Back Down’, the teen MMA movie.
Now he thinks he is an artist. Someone needs to remind him people liked the little girl slaughtering gangsters and saying cunt.
“Because what I certainly loved about the first film, and what I think elevated it above most comic book adaptations, is the heart and the emotion in the film. It was sort of my challenge as the film maker and storyteller to find something as emotional in the second film and I think we have some stuff that people are gonna really respond to.”
Emotionally charged story? I hate when directors get like this, especially when adapting an established property. It usually means the film will be awful. I’m sure Mark Steven Johnson says this stuff all the time.
If you have read Kick Ass 2 the comic its filled with rape, mutilation, and random child murder. It takes the violent potential of the first and makes you hate yourself for supporting writer Mark Millar. Good luck finding your emotional story Wadlow.
