Nicolas Cage Ready to ‘Kick-Ass’

Movie Picture Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson and Lyndsy Fonseca have boarded Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of the violent Mark Millar comic book.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel Comics' Icon imprint book centers on a high school dweeb named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a superhero even though he has no athletic ability or coordination. Things change when he eventually runs into real bad guys with real weapons.

Johnson plays the dweeb and title character, while Fonseca plays the object of the teen's infatuation who believes Dave is gay. Cage is a former cop who wants to bring down a druglord and has trained his daughter (Chloe Moretz) to be a lethal weapon.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse is also in the cast.

Production is gearing for a fall shoot in London and Toronto.

Kick-Ass was released April 16th, 2010.

        Nicolas Cage needs a hit! Actually let me take that back, Nic Cage "USE" to be a damn good actor..Now he is a 3 Rate Hack!

        His last couple of films sucked Incld, that really BAD Re-Make of "The Wicker Man" & the cheese ball film "Ghost Rider"!

        Wiat a minute.....it seems Nicolas Cage "LOVES" to do Re-makes, & will do anything for a paycheck to pay the rent...since "Bangkok Dangerous" is also a "REMAKE" & "Bad Lieutenant" too!!

                              This should be good. Mark Millar, who I interviewed this past weekend (check it out at http://dogandponyshowwebsite.com/article/notes-to-the-closet-dork-kick-ass-mark-millar-interview-part-1)

                              Said that he has alot of control over the direction of the film, and it will be shot, pretty much frame for frame for the comic

                                i have no doubt Nic Cage will have a new hair-cut for this. that would make it 3216 different hair-styles in 20 years!!

                                      Hmmm... not sold yet. Let's see how the production company handles it. I'm not sold on ANY kind of superhero action/comedy. I like to see serious superhero movies. Those are the good ones. If you laugh at the protagonist, you can't take him serious.

                                      Not saying it can't make a sh*tload of money... I'm just not sold on it... yet.

                                        So is this going to be a dark action-comedy movie? Looks pretty cool to me.

                                          the kid in kick-ass does have super powers, he has super determination, why else would a weak dweeb try to become a superhero? I agree with TDK on the genre if you do laugh during this movie itll probably be one of those "ugh i laughed because that was such an uncomfortable seen to watch" which can be fun
