Chloe talks Carrie, Kick-Ass 2, video games, future projects and more with Collider at New York Comic Con.
We’ve already seen countless photos and videos from the set of the in-production sequel Kick-Ass 2 (many courtesy of director Jeff Wadlow himself), but now the film’s official synopsis has been released, giving us a peek at the film’s plot. When the sequel’s story picks up, the bravery of Aaron Johnson’s titular hero has inspired a wave of superheroes led by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). When the group becomes the target of Red Mist’s (Christhoper Mintz-Plasee) fury—now going by the name of “The Mother F%&*^r”—only the incredibly deadly Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) can save them.
Hit the jump to read the full synopsis which includes some further details, and if you missed it check out Steve’s video interview with Moretz from last week’s New York Comic-Con. The promising ensemble cast also includes Clark Duke, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, and Olga Kurkulina. Kick-Ass 2 opens on June 28th, 2013.
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
You Will Know Her Name. Or rather, You Already Know Her Name. Screen Gems has unveiled the first teaser poster for Kimberly Peirce’s remake of Stephen King’s Carrie, starring Chloe Moretz as the high schooler with special powers. Dark Horizons is where this art comes from, after debuting at the New York Comic-Con presentation this weekend, and they call it an “international” poster. Which I believe is a way of getting the MPAA off their ass because it’s so bloody and wouldn’t be approved otherwise. The first trailer arrives early next week, but in the meantime, take a look at the bloody face of Carrie in Carrie 2013 below.
Kimberly Peirce (of Boys Don’t Cry) directs this new adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Carrie, with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (a writer and producer from “Glee” and “Big Love”). Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In, Hugo) stars in the film about a sheltered high school girl who unleashes her newly developed telekinetic powers after she is pushed too far by her peers and her unstable mother (Julianne Moore). The film also stars Judy Greer and Portia Doubleday. ScreenGems finished shooting Carrie earlier this year, and are planning to release the new version in theaters starting on March 15th, 2013 next year.
