Mark Millar confirms 'Kick-Ass 2' will be shot this summer

Comic book scribe also speaks about his new project 'American Jesus'

Mark Millar confirms 'Kick-Ass 2' will be shot this summer

The sequel to the critically acclaimed comic book drama Kick-Ass will be shot this summer, writer Mark Millar has revealed.

Millar, who penned the comic books from which Kick-Ass and its sequel are adapted, has told the Daily Record that both the second Kick Ass film and his new project American Jesus will be shot this summer, telling the paper: "We shoot Kick-Ass 2 and American Jesus this summer".

There had been some doubt as to whether a second Kick-Ass film would happen at all after both writer Jane Goldman and director Matthew Vaughn ruled themselves out of the project. However, it appears a new writer and director have been found for the project.

Millar also spoke about his new project American Jesus, which he has described as "the reverse of the Omen". That will also be shot this summer.

Millar said of this: "It is the reverse of the Omen, which is about a kid who finds out he is the anti-Christ. This is a kid who finds out he is Jesus Christ."
