Universal Closing In On Deals With Original KICK-ASS Cast; Nicolas Cage In Talks To Cameo

Jeff Wadlow has already signed on to write and direct Kick-Ass 2, and with shooting set to begin later this year, the pressure is on to get the cast in place. Here is an update on where deals currently stand (including details on the surprising return of Nicolas Cage).

Deadline reports that despite rumblings of Aaron Johnson (and other cast members) NOT returning for the sequel to Matthew Vaughn's 2010 movie, he and co-stars Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are now likely to return as Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl and Red Mist/The Mother [frick]er respectively. Universal has run into problems because none of them had sequel options, resulting in new deals having to be negotiated. The site confirms that all are very near to finalising a deal with the studio, while Nicolas Cage is in talks to make a cameo appearance. Other big names are also being lined up for starring roles in the highly anticipated adaptation of the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic book.
