Universal Pictures' Kick-Ass took the number one spot at the US box office when it opened, taking down Clash of the Titans. Despite its opening success, the film's gross so far has been rather disappointing, though obviously it hasn't deterred the film-makers, as TotalFilm have reported that graphic novel scribe Mark Millar has confirmed today that production will begin on Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall next year for a 2012 release. The original's stars Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) have already expressed strong interest in returning for the sequel, with Plasse even commenting that Balls to the Wall will be a far more violent and dark movie, particularly with his character.
Suffice to say we cannot wait for 2012! Can you? If you can't then you can check out Millar's comic book Kick-Ass sequel CLiNT, when it hits shelves in September. We certainly will be!
