Chloë Grace Moretz says Kick-Ass 3 is unlikely to happen

27 August 2014 11:10 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Chloë Grace Moretz has been discussing the possibility of a third entry in the Kick-Ass franchise, and has described another sequel as unlikely after the second film’s disappointing box office take. “Sadly, I think I'm done with the character,” says Moretz of her iconic role as Hit-Girl. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies.” “You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.

Chloe Moretz Says Piracy Means 'Kick-Ass 3' Probably Won't Happen

27 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Gifted young actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been making the publicity rounds for her latest tearjerking drama If I Stay, and that means she's been fielding questions about projects other than the current one she's promoting. And considering most of the general population knows he as the foul-mouthed, ass-kicking Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass and last year's underwhelming sequel, she was inevitably asked about Kick-Ass 3. However, rather than being hopeful about the possibility of another film in the R-rated comic book franchise, she pretty much shot down any hopes fans might have of seeing her suit up again. More below! Speaking with Digital Spy, Moretz lamented that Kick-Ass 3 probably won't happen: "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. »

Chloe Moretz Says She's Done Playing Hit-Girl, Blames Piracy For Killing Plans For 'Kick-Ass 3'

27 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kick-Ass” gave fanboys something to squeal about in 2010. Dark humor? Check. Sweet fight choreography? Check. Perfectly placed Nicolas Cage insanity? Double check. And it was a hit, earning nearly $100 million worldwide, which is not too shabby for an R-rated, niche comic book movie. Three years later, “Kick-Ass 2” delivered none of the above. The sequel opened at number five at the box office, and barely scraped its way to $60 million. And Chloë Grace Moretz blames downloaders for the film's failure, alleging they are the reason a third movie won't happen. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Moretz told Digital Spy. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. “ 'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, »

If I Stay Review

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When the talented young actress Chloë Grace Moretz burst onto the scene, truly coming to prominence with her performance as Hit-Girl in the 2010 superhero flick Kick-Ass, she was a breath of fresh air. She may have looked like a sweet, innocent young girl – but subverted the stereotype with an invigorating, energetic, and somewhat unrefined turn, signalling the start of what has since been a flourishing career, which has seen her collaborate with Martin Scorsese in Hugo, and turn to her dark side in the Carrie remake. However her latest endeavour, R.J. Cutler’s If I Stay, is a dramatic step backwards, as she plays the cliched, ‘misunderstood’ teenager with about as much depth as a paddling pool. A character that is everything we had hoped she would never become.

Chloë Grace Moretz Has "Flare"

26 August 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ images of actress Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass") in a recent fashion spread for "Flare" (Canada) magazine, supporting her performance as a 'sex worker' in "The Equalizer", starring Oscar winner Denzel Washington:

"It can be walking art," said Moretz about posing in various outfits for fashion magazines.

"Just put me in whatever is fun and interesting, things that I won’t be able to wear when I’m 30."

"People say don’t judge a book by its cover, but if someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person. If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude." 

"I’m very driven in what I do...It’s the same when I’m acting. There’s no barriers..."

Chloe Moretz Gives Up on Hit Girl and Kick-ass 3 Thanks to Movie Pirating

26 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With the comic book run of Kick-Ass 3 concluded, fans have been wondering if we will ever get another sequel to the film franchise. According to Hit Girl herself, Chloe Moretz, a Kick-Ass 3 movie isn't going to happen. She has given up on the character she so awesomely portrayed, and the franchise that fans have enjoyed. She was asked about the movie in a recent interview with Digital Spy, and this was her reply:

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures.

'Kick Ass 3' Is Dead Due to Piracy Claims Chloe Moretz

26 August 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During a recent interview, Chloe Moretz expressed her concern for online piracy, and claims that it is the sole reason why we will never see another Kick-Ass sequel. She also reveals that she has no plans on returning if Kick-Ass 3 comes to fruition.

Here is what she had to say.

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one. »

Chloë Moretz Says ‘Kick-Ass’ 3 Is Dead, Blames Piracy

25 August 2014 11:49 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

While Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass wasn’t a huge success at the box office, it made enough money – with the help of Blu-ray and DVD sales – to warrant a sequel from director Jeff Wadlow. Alas, the sequel made even less money, and the reviews and fan reception were far less kind than they were for the original, which made a Kick-Ass 3 movie … well, unlikely.

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. – the creators of the comic book on which the Kick-Ass films are based – recently talked about the likelihood of a second sequel coming to fruition. Now, star Chloë Moretz (the actress who played Hit-Girl) is weighing in, too.

Chloe Grace Moretz Shoots Down Kick-Ass 3 Possibility

25 August 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Kick-Ass hit theaters in 2010, it was met with widespread approval and made a respectable $96 million worldwide. Its 2013 sequel, Kick-Ass 2, had the opposite effect, as it garnered indifference and scoffs from critics, and only managed to gather $60 million from worldwide audiences. As enjoyable a franchise as Kick-Ass is and very well could be with future installments, the chances of a third film getting made aren’t looking too good right now.

Earlier this month, comic book writer Mark Millar, who penned three Kick-Ass comics as well as a Hit-Girl spinoff, claimed that the chances of seeing Kick-Ass 3 were “up in the air,” but franchise co-star Chloe Grace Moretz isn’t optimistic.

When speaking with Digital Spy, the actress said:

Chloe Moretz Tells Of Frustration With Film Piracy & No More ‘Kick-Ass’

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kick-ass was a massive success when it was released in 2010. Written by Mrs Jonathan Ross, Jane Goldman, and directed by Matthew Vaughn the film launched the career of Aaron Taylor Johnson who has since gone onto Godzilla and the next Avengers film, as well as Chloe Moretz who completely stole the film as Hit-Girl, a foul mouthed ass-kicking tween superhero vigilante.

Moretz returned for the sequel Kick-ass 2 last year, but due to a lacklustre box office a third film seems unlikely. Whilst speaking about new movie If I Stay in which she plays a cello protege who experiences an out-of-body experience faced with a dilemma after falling into a coma, she was very vocal about her thoughts on what the future holds for the series:

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron" - 'Quicksilver'

25 August 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Comics' 'Quicksilver', aka 'Pietro Maximoff', as played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson ("Kick-Ass") from the set of Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Age Of Ultron":

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.

An example of a ruthless villain turned good, the character is first revealed cinematically in a mid-credits scene in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

"...'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.

"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

Chloe Moretz Gives Up On Hit-Girl And Kick-Ass 3

25 August 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 2010, Chloe Grace Moretz high-kicked her way into our hearts as the tiny and foul-mouthed Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass. The R-rated action comedy that took a decidedly less glamorous look at superheroes eventually spawned Kick-Ass 2. But don't hold your breath for a third adventure with Mindy MacCready. Moretz says her time is over. While doing press for her teen-centered tearjerker If I Stay, Moretz talked candidly about the future of the Kick-Ass franchise. Well, she says there isn't one. She explains to Digital Spy: "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.

Chloe Grace Moretz doesn’t think we’ll get a Kick-Ass 3

25 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month Mark Millar revealed that he’d had no discussions with Matthew Vaughn about bringing his latest comic book series Kick-Ass 3 to the screen, and now Chloe Grace Moretz has stated that she doesn’t believe we’ll get a third Kick-Ass movie, suggesting that piracy was to blame for the poor performance of last year’s Kick-Ass 2.

“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character,” Moretz tells Digital Spy. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies.

Chloe Grace Moretz feels she's done playing Hit-Girl

25 August 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Earlier this month, Kick-Ass creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. were frank about the money Kick-ass 2 did (or rather didn't) make, but the idea of a Kick-ass 3 wasn't completely out of the question for them. While Kick-ass 2 barely made it's budget back domestically, it's Blu-ray/DVD sales were stronger, bringing in about $100 million (with TV). Hit-Girl herself, Chloe Moretz, doesn't feel as optimistic about returning to the world of Kick-ass. She recently spoke out about donning the »

Chloe Moretz Says Kick-Ass 3 Won't Happen

25 August 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Mark Millar recently said that a third "Kick-Ass" film may still happen, but now comes word from Chloe Moretz that the "Kick-Ass" franchise will likely never be revisited. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies," she said. "'Kick-Ass 2' was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one." But that doesn't mean that Moretz isn't interested in playing a superhero again. "I try to keep abreast on what's out there and what's being made," she said. "We're getting a lot of source material from books and comics right now, »
