Kick-Ass Director Matthew Vaughn Working On Hit-Girl Prequel


Director Matthew Vaughn scored a sleeper-hit with Kick-Ass, but he then passed the baton to Jeff Wadlow for sequel, which wasn't as well received. He's now revealed that he isn't done with the Kick-Ass franchise and has plans to make a Hit-Girl prequel that will resuscitate the franchise and allow them to eventually make Kick-Ass 3.

"We're working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy," Vaughn said during a Yahoo Movies press event for Kingsman: The Secret Service DVD release. "If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn't like Kick-Ass 2 and then we can go off and make Kick-Ass 3. "I think we've got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with Kick-Ass."

Last month, Mark Millar revealed that he had discussed a Hit-Girl movie with Vaughn that was so crazy that it would make "Kick-Ass look like Finding Nemo."
