Lagies SDFF 2014 Movie Review

‘Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall’ Theatrical Release 2012?

With the unexpected success of Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass, there is expectation of a sequel despite its low box office performance. Well you are in luck my friends because light has been shed by Mark Millar, writer of the Kick-Ass comic. ForcesofGeek got a hold of a press release about the start up of a monthly magazine joint venture with Mark Millar and Titan Magazines, CLiNT, and the status of the Kick-Ass sequel.

“Millar is also launching his sequel to the hit Kick-Ass movie in the first issue of the comic. “Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall” has been scheduled for production in 2011 for a 2012 cinema release, but fans of the first movie can find out what happens two years in advance by picking up CLiNT.”

“The 100-page magazine will be packed with interviews and features from movies, games and television as well as four serialized comic-strips. The biggest names in entertainment will be featured every month and some will even be sticking around to write sci-fi, humour or horror stories after they’ve been interviewed and quizzed.”

Check out the rest of the press release after the jump!
