More Eye Candy - Another Three New Kick-Ass Photos
I'm going to preface this by mentioning that the fifth issue of Mark Millar's actual Kick-Ass comic hit shelves a few weeks ago, and it is as "kick ass" as the title itself. I love this comic and I can't get enough of it. It took forever for the fifth issue to come out, but it was worth it. Go buy it! And once you've read it, come back here and check out three new photos via HitFix from Matthew Vaughn's live-action version. To be honest, it's really hard to appreciate these unless you really know the comic itself. That said, take a look if you must, but just know that this will actually kick ass in the end, despite what you may think now.
In addition to seeing Aaron Johnson as the title character Dave Lizewski, there is a photo of Nicolas Cage and Chloe Moretz as Big Daddy and Hit Girl, respectively, out of their costumes. Stay tuned for more.
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 on his own and doesn't yet have a distributor. However, we can expect Kick-Ass to eventually show up in theaters sometime in 2009.
