Matthew Vaughn’s adaptation of Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass seems to be moving along quickly through production, and it looks to be an excellent translation from comic into film. A scooper managed to get a shot from the set where they appeared to be shooting the opening sequence from the film, and they posted it over to /Film.
The scooper writes:
Coming back from a Jays game happen to catch what appeared to be 2nd Unit for Kick-Ass. Didn’t see Matthew Vaughn on site. They seemed to be shooting the opening shots of the movie. The camera starts off facing the wrecked taxi and ends up on a close up of the license plate that reads ‘Kick-Ass’ Here are the shots taken with my Iphone.”

Kick-Ass follows the story of a 15-year-old boy named Dave Lizewski who, despite living in the "real world", decides to become a superhero. The film was co-written and is being directed by Matthew Vaughn. The film stars Aaron Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage.
