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

23 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Kick-Ass" and "Secret Service" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy.

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".

The 'Deadpool' movie might be PG-13

22 September 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last week, Fox announced it was making a Deadpool movie, news which you either greeted with loud cheers because They’Re Finally Making A Deadpool Movie!!!!!!! or a confused shrug because Who The Hell Is Deadpool???? While he has a lower profile in the mainstream, Deadpool is a beloved figure in comic book circles. The best way to understand him is to know that he’s sort of a meta-character: An anti-superhero psychopath who frequently breaks the fourth wall and just-as-frequently kills people/things in the bloodiest way possible.

“Bloodiest way possible” may not be in the cards for the Deadpool movie, »

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, »

Chloe Grace Moretz says piracy stopped 'Kick-Ass 3' from happening

It seems Hit-Girl has fought her last battle. As for Chloë Grace Moretz? Not so much.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Moretz reportedly revealed that she won’t return to the beloved character. “Sadly, I think I’m done with the character,” Moretz said. “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 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. »

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:

“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. »

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.

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.

Third "Kick Ass" Unlikely Says Hit-Girl

24 August 2014 8:58 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst comic creator Mark Millar says the fate of a third "Kick-Ass" film is still up in the air, the chances of it happening aren't looking good. Further hammering a nail in its coffin today comes a quote from the franchise's scene stealer Chloe Grace Moretz who plays Hit-Girl in the films.

Speaking with Digital Spy during promo rounds for "If I Stay," the actress was asked about reprising the role down the line. She said: "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 also has an idea as to what was to blame for the second film's failure, and it wasn't the poor reviews: "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 »

Kick-ass Star Chloë Grace Moretz Says She's "Done" With Playing Hit-Girl

24 August 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Despite writer Mark Millar stating that things are "up in the air" as far as a third Kick-Ass movie goes, one of the stars of the previous 2 instalments definitely seems to be erring towards the negative side of things when it comes to the film ever getting made. "Sadly, I think I'm done with the character," Chloë Grace Moretz tells Digital Spy. "Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies." The actress blames movie piracy contributing to disappointing box office numbers as the main reason why we likely won't see a Kick-Ass 3.

Chloë Grace Moretz has revealed that she's leaving behind her iconic Hit-Girl role.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the actress said that she doesn't believe Kick-Ass 3 will happen and suggested that piracy resulted in the underwhelming box office performance of last year's sequel.

‘Sin City 2′ Bombs at Friday Box Office, ‘Guardians′ Will Be Back on Top

23 August 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” was left battered and bruised on Friday at the domestic box office, while “Guardians of the Galaxy” will likely skyrocket back up top, eking out Friday’s victor “If I Stay” by Sunday.

The retro-noir, budgeted between $60 million and $70 million, came in sixth on Friday behind the sports drama “When the Game Stands Tall,” with $2.6 million. It’s on track for dismal $7 million this weekend — less than half the $15 million projected sum.

The sequel comes almost a decade after The Weinstein Co. stuck gold with the original pic. “Sin City” debuted to $29.1 million in 2005 on its way to a $74.1 million domestic total ($158.8 million worldwide). Nine years is evidently too long of a gap in between films for audiences, especially since the franchise no longer has critical support. This second installment earned a 43% fresh rating on the Rotten Tomatoes, while “Sin City” garnered 78%.
