Kick-Ass writer Jane Goldman has revealed that she and director Matthew Vaughn are unlikely to return to the same capacity for Kick-Ass 2. Jane has admitted that she and Matthew would be more interested in returning in a producer role is Kick-Ass 2 was to be made and it seems that Vaughn may have somebody in mind to write and produce the Kick-Ass sequel.
Goldman explained, "I think the only thing that is fairly sure is that right now, Matthew doesn't have any plans to direct it. He and I are not currently talking about writing it either. It may well be that Matthew oversees Kick-Ass 2 in a producer role, and I may also be involved in that capacity. I know that there is somebody that Matthew has been talking to who would be interested in writing and directing that. That would be cool."
She added, "It's very tempting, we had such a wonderful time making it. It's such a great bunch of people, people we'd all be incredibly keen to work with again. If we could repeat the experience we had that would be wonderful. I think for whatever reason Matthew feels that he isn't going to be directing that one."
Jane continued, "My own feeling is that I love Mark Millar's follow-up to the comic. I love the second volume of the comic, but whether the movie itself needs a sequel, I'm a little on the fence about that." It seems that most people would love to see Kick-Ass 2 be made but if it was without the involvement of Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, it would seem a little wrong.
