Yancy Butler Returns For Kick-Ass 2

Yancy Butler, who played Angie D’Amico, the mother of Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s Red Mist in the original Kick-Ass, will return for the sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Adapting the Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. comic, the sequel will be directed by Never Back Down helmer Jeff Wadlow and will feature a script by Matthew Vaughn.

A September start is being eyed for the film, which will have Mintz-Plasse, Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz reprising their roles along with new parts for John Leguizamo and Donald Faison.

Butler is well-known to comic book fans outside of Kick-Ass. She starred as cop-turned-superhero Sara Pezzini in the short-lived “Witchblade” television series.
