Comic Book Resources talked to Mark Millar, who said the adaptation of his and John Romita Jr.’s Kick-Ass will start filming on location in New York this August:
“The casting’s all been done, and everything’s all in line now with that. There’s two big names attached, which I can’t mention so we can get on the cover of ‘Variety.’ And now we’ve got everyone. The kids who show up at the end of issue #3 – we just cast the girl, and that was a really tricky one because we needed to find someone who could do martial arts stuff. So the whole movie’s ready to role.”
Wanted, based on Millar’s graphic novel, hits theaters on Friday.
