Deadline recently reported that Universal Pictures is attempting to gain Jim Carrey for a new role in the upcoming sequel, Kick-ass 2. Carrey, who admitted to being a fan of Matthew Vaughn’s original film, would be playing the part of Colonel Stars, a military-themed superhero who founds the super-team Justice Forever.
While this is far from a sure thing, this could be the perfect next role for Carrey. If he signs on, Carrey will join Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Yancy Butler and Morris Chestnut in the adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. comic.
As for the film’s story, part of the plot will revolve around someone discovering the hero’s identity, with both Dave and Mindy possibly being found out.
Much of the storyline will also focus on Hit Girl and what happens to her after the events of the first movie. After her identity is released, she begins to be teased and bullied and given a less than classy nickname of “Captain Muffin-Muncher.” But don’t expect Hit Girl to cower in the face of the teasing. She is always ready to take charge in confrontation and self defense.
The sequel will be directed by Never Back Down helmer Jeff Wadlow and will feature a script by Vaughn.
