'Hit-Girl' Prequel May Happen Before 'Kick-Ass 3'
When last she spoke about her fan-favorite Kick-Ass character Hit-Girl, star of the franchise Chloe Moretz claimed that Kick-Ass 3 was dead, blaming the sequel's demise on piracy. Now, director of the original Matthew Vaughn is singing a different tune. Not only does he think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, but he believes it should be proceeded by a Hit-Girl prequel movie.

Sure, Chloe Moretz has stated that she is pretty much done with the young vigilante Mindy McCready. But speaking with JoBlo, Matthew Vaughn (who is currently promoting his latest film as a director, Kingsman: The Secret Service) believes he can convince the young actress to come back and once again don the iconic purple mini-skirt.

"Do you know what's going to be next if I do it... we've finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we've got to do the First Class to the Kick-Ass world. We

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Kick-Ass 3′

Written by Mark Millar | Art by John Romita Jr. | Published by Titan Books | Format: Hardback, 232pp

When Kick-Ass was introduced to the world by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. not only were we introduced to that him as a character, but more importantly Hit-Girl. Dave Lizewski aka Kick Ass wasn’t a real superhero, Hit-Girl was, and she made Kick-Ass into everything he was destined to be. Now we are at Kick-Ass 3 is Dave finally a fully fledged superhero, or still a comic book obsessed wannabe?

Kick-Ass 3 starts with a shocker, Hit-Girl is arrested and stuck in a maximum security jail. Leaving instructions for Kick-Ass on how to break her out she waits for the day he finally rescues her. The only problem is he has other things on his mind, mainly a new girlfriend and the Justice Forever team which is fragmenting, and his focus is on everything but being a superhero.

Lou Reed Dies: Iconic Rock Star Dead At 71

  • HollywoodLife
So sad! One of the most influential figures in rock ‘n’ roll history passed away on Oct. 27. He was 71 years old.

Lou Reed, the founder of the influential alt-rock band The Velvet Underground, died on Oct. 27. The cause of his death has not yet been released.

Lou Reed: Rock Legend Dies At 71

Lou was 71 years old, and had recently undergone a liver transplant in May 2013, according to Rolling Stone. And in July he was hospitalized for severe dehydration.

He is one of the biggest names in music history alongside Bob Dylan and John Lennon. He revolutionized rock ‘n’ roll in the late Sixties by marrying grungy alternative rock with avant-garde concepts, and is often credited with spawning the punk rock movement. He also employed a lyrical honesty that had never been heard before with his band The Velvet Underground and later as a solo artist.

He never stopped making music,

Two More Foul-Mouthed Featurettes For ‘Kick-Ass 2′

Tomorrow sees the UK release of bonkers, wannabe superhero sequel Kick-ass 2 as we’re reacquainted the green-hooded deliverer of justice Dave Lizewski (aka Kick-Ass) and his cunt-bellowing sidekick Mindy McCready (Hit Girl), again played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz. The duo join up with fellow crime-fighters, the ‘Justice Forever’ crew, to take of Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s former friend-turned-nemesis Red Mist, now reborn as rogue villain The Mother Fucker and his band of hired killers.

After Kick-Ass’ insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes, our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist — reborn as The Mother Fucker — only the blade-wielding Hit Girl can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave.

Jeff Wadlow on Kick-Ass 2, sequels and 15 ratings

  • Den of Geek
Interview Ryan Lambie 31 Jul 2013 - 13:01

The writer and director of Kick-Ass 2 chats to us about its making, and getting a 15 certificate in the UK...

Nb: This interview contains a bit of swearing.

It’s after eight on an autumn evening at Pinewood Studios, and another hard day’s filming has just finished on the set of Kick-Ass 2. As the dozens of extras exit the sound stage, we take a look around at the oppulent space around us for the first time; this is the lair of Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s villain, and as you might expect from a young, slightly sociopathic comic book villain, it’s packed full of expensive cars, arcade machines, plush furniture, a bar, and somewhat incongruously (if you haven’t read Mark Millar’s source comic), there’s a gigantic water tank with a dead shark in it.

'Kick-Ass 2': Chloe Grace Moretz Reveals Hit-Girl's Evolution

by Brett White

As Comic Book Movie reports, the latest issue of Movie Magic magazine contains a fairly extensive interview with "Kick-Ass 2" star Chloe Grace Moretz and director Jeff Wadlow about the evolution of her character, Hit-Girl.

"The obvious difference is that I'm older now, and the difference between 11 and 15, which is how old I was when we finished, is that you're a different person, obviously," Moretz reveals. "You're calculating more ideas, you're experiencing more things in your own life, you're not just living through other people's eyes, you're making your own decisions."

The next chapter in Mindy McCready's life also comes as a direct response to the previous one (also known as 2010's "Kick-Ass"), and that chapter doesn't read the same way this time around.

"Here's this little girl who is basically raised to be an assassin by this man who is insane," director Jeff Wadlow explains.

Dr. Drew Pinsky says he's done with 'Celebrity Rehab'

Dr. Drew Pinsky says he's done with 'Celebrity Rehab'
If VH1 does another edition of "Celebrity Rehab," it will do so without Dr. Drew Pinsky.

In an interview on the Zach Sang and the Gang radio show, Pinsky says he doesn't "have any plans to do that again," largely because of the stress of the job.

"I'm tired of taking all the heat -- it's just ridiculous," Pinsky says (the full interview is here; "Celebrity Rehab" talk starts about eight minutes in). "These are burdensome patients that I follow for long periods of time -- we're still kind of treating the rehab patients form last year. We treat them for a good six, nine months. ... These are really sick people. That's why they die."

Five patients who have appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" have subsequently died, most recently country singer Mindy McCready earlier this year. Pinsky said at the time that he was no longer treating McCready.
