It appears that we are going to get to see Mother Russia (Olga Kurkulina) beating on Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) in the new Kick-Ass movie, which is out next year. Mark Millar has been talking about his experiences with Kick-Ass 2 so far and admits he loved seeing Mother Russia and Hit Girl fighting.
Millar wrote on his website, “Shot down to England last week for some time on the Kick-Ass 2 set. Three of the days were press interviews, all embargoed until a few weeks before release, but the rest was just sitting around and drinking tea while superheroes beat the shit out of super-villains in the big finale (as you’ll have read in the book). As a producer, I’ve been watching a lot of this in the dropbox as it happens, but nothing compares to seeing Mother Russia (in the flesh) pounding Hit-Girl in the face in what WE KNOW is going to win MTV’s Best Fight Scene Award already.”
It added, “I’m not kidding… this fight is unlike anything I’ve seen in cinema before. I’d watched the stunt team block it out a few weeks back, but this was astonishing. The movie is being edited as happens and so, at the halfway point in shooting, I have about 40 edited minutes to watch in the suite during lunch-breaks. Blown Away is an understatement. everything is working perfectly and Vaughn was correct when he told me to trust his judgement when he hand-picked Jeff Wadlow for this gig. This feels like the next chapter of something we all dug a great deal, incredibly consistent with what came before, but at the same time going a little darker and a lot bigger as Dave joins the team.”
Kick-Ass 2 stars Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Yancy Butler and Morris Chestnut and is set to be released in the US on June 28, 2013 and then in the UK on July 19, 2013.
