Check This Out: Nic Cage as Big Daddy on New Kick-Ass Poster
More posters for Kick-Ass? Yep, we're going to get one of these for every damn character in the movie. I think Hit Girl is up next after this one! UGO has debuted a new character poster for Kick-Ass featuring Big Daddy on it. Big Daddy is another costumed hero played by Nicolas Cage in the movie (he's look kind of like Batman, right?). His daughter is Hit Girl, played by Chloe Moretz, and they form a ragtag vigilante team that is actually very efficient and quite brutal, unlike Kick-Ass. In related news, UGO also has a clip featuring Big Daddy. The film also just screened recently and Peter from SlashFilm said "Kick-Ass kicked everyone's ass."
Kick-Ass is both written and directed by British filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, of Layer Cake and Stardust previously. The screenplay was co-written by Vaughn and his writing partner Jane Goldman, of Stardust as well. The story is an adaptation of Mark Millar's comic of the same name that is currently in the middle of its first series. Kick-Ass was funded entirely by Matthew Vaughn and his own private investors and sold once finished to Lionsgate earlier this year. They've currently set an April 16th, 2010 release date for the film, although I hope they change that, because that's a terrible opening day. Who's already planning to see this?
