If you are doing a follow-up to the 2014 comedy hit Neighbors, of course you're going to want it to be a little different. The sequel is planning just that as it gets officially titled Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. And next year, after battling a couple of raunchy Frat Boys, Seth Rogen and his on-screen wife Rose Byrne are going to be going to war with the mother of all Sorority sisters, Chloe Moretz, who confirms herself as the female lead.
Seth Rogen spent the final half of 2014 in the news for his controversial comedy The Interview. A terrorist group demanded the film be canceled, taking responsibility for the massive Sony hack that saw quite a few embarrassing emails leaked. While the movie did decent numbers after it was officially released in a handful of independent theaters and on VOD, Seth Rogen found greater success early in the summer with Neighbors. The comedy about a young married couple dealing with the birth of their first child as a fraternity moves into the house next door pulled in $150 million off a $18 million budget. It's total global haul was $268 million. So of course a sequel was almost immediately announce. But as the year moved forward, we heard little about it.Read More
When last she spoke about her fan-favorite Kick-Ass character Hit-Girl, star of the franchise Chloe Moretz claimed that Kick-Ass 3 was dead, blaming the sequel's demise on piracy. Now, director of the original Matthew Vaughn is singing a different tune. Not only does he think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, but he believes it should be proceeded by a Hit-Girl prequel movie.
Sure, Chloe Moretz has stated that she is pretty much done with the young vigilante Mindy McCready. But speaking with JoBlo, Matthew Vaughn (who is currently promoting his latest film as a director, Kingsman: The Secret Service) believes he can convince the young actress to come back and once again don the iconic purple mini-skirt."Do you know what's going to be next if I do it... we've finished plotting it. What we have to do is, we've got to do the First Class to the Kick-Ass world. We lost a few fans on Kick-Ass 2. It wasn't as loved as one would've hoped. So we have this idea for a Hit-Girl prequel. It's a really strong, really simple prequel where I think we can regain the love and the passion. If that happens, I'm pretty sure I can persuade Aaron and Chloe to come back and finish the story of Kick-Ass with Kick-Ass 3".Read More
Back in September, we reported that 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero adventure X-Men: Apocalypse will re-cast iconic characters such as Storm, Jean Grey and Cyclops, which makes sense since we reported in March that the sequel will be set in the 1980s. Today, The Wrap is reporting that Chloe Moretz, Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld are in contention to play Jean Grey, with Ben Hardy, Charlie Rowe and Timothée Chalamet being eyed for Cyclops.
Insiders claim that both Chloe Moretz and Elle Fanning have met with director Bryan Singer to discuss the role over the past few weeks, but it isn't clear if there is a front runner among the trio, and the site also mentions that Elle Fanning may not even be interested in the role. Sources claim that official test offers have not been made to any actress yet, and several others still remain in the mix.Read More

During a recent interview, Chloe Moretz expressed her concern for online piracy, and claims that it is the sole reason why we will never see another Kick-Ass sequel. She also reveals that she has no plans on returning if Kick-Ass 3 comes to fruition.
This isn't the first time piracy has been blamed for poor box office numbers, The Expendables 3 most recently felt the effects of the crime. The film did poorly in theaters, presumably because it was leaked a few weeks before it's official release.Read More
