Our very own Ed Douglas spoke to Chloe Moretz this weekend at the New York Comic Con about her upcoming role in Kimberly Pierce’s Carrie remake (which you can read all of by clicking here) and the subject turned to Kick-Ass 2 for just a moment.
“I’m not going back in time,’ said Moretz. ‘Which is good. I’m growing up with this, so it’s just an older sophisticated version of Hit Girl and we don’t take away who she was but you see Mindy more in this movie and you see her struggle with who she is and try to figure out what she likes, if she likes this, if she likes that, who is she? It was really funny because I only had a weekend off in between ‘Carrie’ and ‘Kick-Ass’ so I went from wearing blood every day of my life for the last three weeks of shooting ‘Carrie,’ to starting ‘Kick-Ass.’ The first thing I shot was me in full Hit-Girl mode, knives, guns… it was so anti-climactic to go from being this really heartbroken character to be this strong, powerful woman.”
Moretz returned to the Kick-Ass 2 set in London last night as they wrap up filming there shortly.
Aaron Johnson, Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Robert Emms, Yancy Butler and Morris Chestnut co-star in the adaptation of the Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. comic.
Kick-Ass 2 hits theaters on June 28, 2013.
