The panel featured director Jeff Wadlow, creators Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lindy Booth, Donald Faison, John Leguizamo, with a special video appearance from Chloe Moretz. The cast answered questions and joked with the audience while describing the filming of the sequel.

Kick-Ass 2: New Trailers and Movie Posters Galore!

In 2010, the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. comic book story of a high school guy who decides one day to become a superhero was brought to the big screen in Kick-Ass. Now the gang is back and ready to fight crime and well, kick ass yet again!

Chloe Moretz is reprising her role as Hit-Girl, the bad-ass little high school girl who fights crime in costume beside Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) himself. This time around, a group of regular citizens have been inspired to follow her lead, and don costumes, and fight crime through the city as well. Aaron and Chloe will star alongside such names as Jim Carrey, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Clark Duke, Lyndsy Fonseca, and of course Christopher Mintz-Plasse, formerly Red Mist, as The Mother F***er; the villain who the citizens must band together to defeat. [Ed. Note – Let me just say, I’m very pleased to find out that  Lyndsy Fonseca is returning. She is awesome on Nikita, plus – well you know. The acting and all that…

Stephen King’s “Carrie” Remake Finds it’s Lead

And so we just keep rolling down Remake Road. This time the Brian De Palma masterpiece needs for some reason to be redone. Much like the new Total Recall, this seems to be another movie no one was asking for. Now, most likely what will decide if it’s watchable or not will be who they cast as the infamous Carrie White.

The remake of the 1976 film based on the Stephen King novel “Carrie” will be directed by Kim Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry). The casting was full of up-and-coming possibilities. The list of  ladies who have read for the role of Carrie White are as follows: Haley Bennett (Marley & Me), Dakota Fanning (Man on Fire), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Bella Heathcote (In Time), Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror), and the winner of this coveted star role: Chloë Moretz. Ms. Mortez is no stranger to the whole remake craze as she was in the updates of The Amityville Horror, The Eye, Let Me In, and the upcoming Dark Shadows. She is also building up quite the impressive geek-resume outside the remake game with movies like Kick-Ass, (500) Days of Summer, and a reoccurring role as Jack Donaghy’s nemesis Kaylie Hooper on 30 Rock.

Chloë has said she is a big fan of Kim Peirce’s work. The 1976 adaptation of Carrie is going to be tough to follow. Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie were both nominated for Oscars for their part in the film. According to Vulture, Peirce has approached Julianne Moore and Jodie Foster about the movie, both of whom are past Oscar winners.

The remake is said to be releasing some time in 2013. No word yet on if John Travolta will reprise his role as ‘Asshole High Schooler’…
