'Masters of the Universe' Movie Logo Revealed

16 February 2015 5:04 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been awhile since we last heard anything about Columbia Pictures' planned reboot of the Masters of the Universe franchise, which is getting a new live action movie following the original 1987 release based on the classic 80s cartoon series. Today, DeVon Franklin, senior vice president of Columbia and the driving force behind this new iteration of the fantasy adventure series, unveiled the official title card and logo for the impending release. He also teases that more news is coming soon.

Way back in early January, just as the New Year was kicking off, DeVon Franklin revealed that Jeff Wadlow had completed a fresh draft of the screenplay. No director has been announced yet, but its speculated that this news may be revealed before the end of the week. Jon M. Chu was at one time supposed to direct, but left the project to take on another action figure toy »

First Look At The New Logo For Masters Of The Universe Reboot

16 February 2015 1:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony’s Masters Of The Universe remake has been simmering away for years now on the back burner, forgotten in favor of flashier contemporary material (22 Jump Street, we’re talking about you.) The last month, however, has seen practically a typhoon of information arrive online about the project courtesy of Columbia Pictures Senior Vice President of Production, DeVon Franklin.

After a good badgering on Twitter, the Svp responded back on Christmas Eve with a photo snapshot of the script title sheet. Then, just this past weekend, fans prodded Franklin for further information, which prompted the following response:

In case you’re wondering “what’s the big kerfuffle?”, then bear with us. The above image is in fact a brand new logo, presumably designed specifically for the in-development movie. »

Interview – Wamg Talks To Kingsman: The Secret Service Composer Matthew Margeson

12 February 2015 6:41 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If there’s one film you need to see this weekend, it’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. It’s funny, it’s fast-paced and it’s one insane, entertaining experience. Catch this one in the theater and with a crowd!

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Composers Henry Jackman (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Matthew Margeson score the spy action adventure comedy. This is the second collaboration between Jackman and Margeson, who had worked previously on Kick Ass 2. The duo supplied the soundtrack for the star-studded Kingsman with Oscar winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine, Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson, and newcomer Taron Egerton. »

A "Kick-Ass" Hit-Girl Prequel May Happen

12 February 2015 3:19 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the release of the "Kick-Ass" sequel not faring particularly well with either critics or at the box-office, it looked like that franchise died a quick death - something that actress Chloe Moretz seemingly confirmed last year in interviews.

Now though it appears Moretz could slip back into the Hit-Girl outfit - in a prequel. Matthew Vaughn, who directed the first film and this week's "Kingsman: The Secret Service," says that he thinks the franchise still has plenty of life left in it and one suggestion would be a Hit-Girl prequel movie ahead of a third "Kick-Ass". Vaughn tells Joblo:

"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 'X-Men: First Class' to the Kick-Ass world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn't as loved as one would've hoped. »

"Kick-Ass 3" - 'Hit-Girl' Becomes 'Hit-Woman'

11 February 2015 2:01 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Kick-Ass" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has again confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as ''Mindy' aka 'Hit-Girl':

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base including director Quentin Tarantino, that supports Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as young female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass 3".

Mark Millar Still Keen On Potential Hit-Girl Spinoff Film Before Kick-Ass 3

11 February 2015 12:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that Chloë Grace Moretz has admitted that she is unlikely to return as the foul-mouthed heroine, Mark Millar has revealed that he still harbours plans for a potential Hit-Girl spinoff film before moving on to the as-yet-unconfirmed Kick-Ass 3.

It’s all a little pie in the sky right now, considering that excitement for a purported threequel has cooled dramatically following the middling reception surrounding Kick-Ass 2. Still, director Matthew Vaughn remains as passionate as ever about the comic book title, revealing that he is “pretty sure” he can twist both Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s arms into returning to conclude the story.

“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 lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It »

The Hit-Girl Movie May Still Happen, Get The Details

11 February 2015 11:45 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It seems that rumors depicting the demise of the planned Kick-Ass spinoff, Hit-Girl have been exaggerated. In fact, the director of the series. first film, Matthew Vaughn isn.t throwing in the blood-soaked towel just yet on this little franchise that could. According to Vaughn, Hit-Girl is still very much in play and he plans to use it as way to get enough momentum for a possible Kick-Ass 3! Certainly, you can never accuse Vaughn of being a deadbeat director when it comes to his franchises. (At least, ones not run by Bryan Singer.) In an interview with JobBlo, promoting his latest comic-adapted action thriller, Kingsman: The Secret Service, Vaughn reveals a surprising amount of resolve towards reviving the Kick-Ass franchise; especially considering how 2013.s Kick-Ass 2 yielded lackluster numbers that would be a death sentence to any other franchise. Vaughn would lay out his grand plan to revive the fantastical »

'Hit-Girl' Prequel May Happen Before 'Kick-Ass 3'

11 February 2015 8:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

That Hit-girl Prequel Might Actually Happen; Followed By Kick-ass 3

11 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Chloe Grace Moretz may have said she's "done with Hit-Girl", but director Matthew Vaughn is "pretty sure" he can persuade her to return to the character. When asked about the possibility of a third Kick-Ass movie, Vaughn said that he hopes to do a Hit-Girl prequel first, and win back the fans that were lost after the absolutely average Kick-Ass 2. He thinks if they can pull that off, then it'll be easier to get Moretz and Aaron Taylor Johnson back to finish the story. "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 lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2.

Matthew Vaughn on Kick-Ass 3 and Hit-Girl prequel

11 February 2015 2:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a promotional interview with Joblo ahead of the U.S. release of his latest film Kingsman: The Secret Service, Matthew Vaughn has dropped some news concerning one of his previous comic book adaptations, revealing that he and Mark Millar have plotted a Kick-Ass prequel movie based around the character of Hit-Girl, and that should it prove successful, he’s confident of convincing Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz to return for Kick-Ass 3.

“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 lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn’t as loved as one would’ve hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit-Girl prequel. It’s a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. »

Mark Millar talks Hit-Girl solo movie, Gareth Evans would have directed

29 January 2015 2:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mark Millar has been very busy of late, producing Matthew Vaughn’s new film Kingsman: The Secret Service, and being a creative consultant on The Fantastic Four reboot, both of which he spoke about exclusively to Flickering Myth last week during the UK junket for Kingsman. Now IGN has dug into another of Millar’s creations, Kick-Ass, and more specifically Hit-Girl. Rumours have previously circulated about a potential solo movie for the female ass-kicker and Millar has divulged some interesting information about the possibility of a spin-off film.

“Before ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ came out, we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie. We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy.”

It’s certainly interesting to hear about that a Hit-Girl film was mooted before Kick-Ass 2 was released, »

Kick-Ass Almost Spun Off This Side Character For A Franchise

28 January 2015 3:28 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The comic book film adaptation, Kick-Ass was somewhat of a minor miracle when it was released back in 2010, since it managed to take an obscure cult favorite series and bring it somewhat faithfully to life on the big screen for a major wide release. It did.okay. Its 2013 sequel, however, would bring in a lot less than "okay." In a recent revelation, it seems that because of that poor performance, a planned spin-off film for the scene stealing fledgling femme fatale, Hit-Girl will never see the light of day. In an interview with IGN, Kick-Ass author Mark Millar, promoting his latest film project Kingsman: The Secret Service, has looked back lamentably at how the future that he planned for the Kick-Ass film franchise fell apart. There was evidently hope that the sequel could eventually land a feature spin-off for Chloe Moretz's Hit Girl. The comic writer said, "Before Kick-Ass 2 »

'Kick-Ass' Creator Mark Millar Says A Hit-Girl Solo Movie Was Once In The Works With 'The Raid' Director Gareth Evans

28 January 2015 6:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Chloe Moretz said last summer about her future playing Hit-Girl following the disappointing box office results of "Kick-Ass 2" in 2013. "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." While the actress' swipe at piracy ignores the fact that the reception to the sequel was not as warm as the first, and no one was really asking for a sequel, it seems at one point that there was talk of extending the brand a bit further. Doing the rounds for "Kingsman: The Secret Service," "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar revealed that had things gone a different way, the series would've continued in an interesting direction. “Before 'Kick-Ass 2' came out, we’d »

While chatting it up with IGN, creator Mark Millar again said a third Kick-ass probably isn't going to happen, since Kick-ass 2 didn't make as much money as the first film. However, the bigger news is there were talks of a solo Hit-Girl movie, and The Raid director Gareth Evans had a couple of conversations with Millar about helming the film.

Mark Millar Reveals The Raid Director Was Interested In A Hit-girl Solo Film

27 January 2015 1:17 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last year, Chloë Grace Moretz said she was done playing Hit-Girl. I wonder if she would change her mind if Gareth Evans, who is best known for directing the action-packed movies The Raid and The Raid 2: Berandal, helmed a Hit-Girl solo film. In a recent interview Mark Millar revealed that at one time he had discussion with Evans about such a project. “Before Kick-Ass 2 came out we’d been talking about a Hit-Girl spin-off movie” Mark Millar told IGN. “We’d even talked to a director – we had a couple of calls with Gareth Evans, who I absolutely love. He’s an amazing director. But Gareth’s now busy. ” Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010's irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review – Kick-Ass With Spies, Literally

27 January 2015 3:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Rating: ★★★★

Kingsman: The Secret Service sees director Matthew Vaughn reteam with co-writer Jane Goodman to adapt a Mark Millar comic riffing on a beloved genre. So it’s Kick-Ass, just for spies then? Those jokey summaries really write themselves.

But witticisms aside, that really is what Kingsman comes across as. The same pervasive self-awareness runs through the film, and if you strip down both movies’ narratives of their respective genre there are some astonishing similarities. Like, spoiler-level similarities. An action beat in Kingsman even mirrors a now-iconic move from Hit-Girl.

There’s no 22 Jump Street winking to suggest this is intentional, but rather than seeing the writing team fatigued and repeating the same tricks, hewing to type affords them a broader creativity. So yeah, Kingsman is Kick-Ass with spies. But as big budget spy movies are much more fertile and epic ground than superhero comics, that leaves »

Mark Millar interview: Kingsman, Fox's Marvel films

23 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Comic book writer Mark Millar talks to us about his work on Kingsman: The Secret Service, storytelling and more...

The latest big screen adaptation of Mark Millar's work, Kingsman: The Secret Service, arrives in UK cinemas this week. It follows the likes of Kick-AssKick-Ass 2 and Wanted to the screen, and Millar also advises Fox on its series of Marvel films. He spared us some time for a chat about his films, storytelling, auctioning names off for charity, and specifically about Kingsman itself.

Here's how it went...

To what extent would you say this is a political story?

Funny you should say that. We were chatting about this earlier, and my friends who are left-wing so it as a left-wing political story about a guy from nothing showing that he’s just as good as people who had everything, and he’s even being better than them by the end. »
