Chloe Moretz, who is playing Hit Girl in the adaptation of Mark Millar's comic Kick-Ass, has once again gifted fans with a set report on her blog. In this latest report, Moretz talks about meeting Mark Millar, as well as the fact that they've moved on to the most action-intense aspects of the film.
It seems like overnight it got freezing cold here in London. I'm wearing my boots and wool coats and scarves. I love it! We don't have the season changes like this in LA so I'm really enjoying this. It rains a lot but that's ok because I have a cute umbrella that my mom bought me on Portabello Street. I loooooooovvvvvvveeeee Portabello Street. It is so fun and funky it kind of reminds me a little bit of the fun parts of Melrose in LA. I am on my 9th week on my film Kick-Ass and am still having fun. I'm really, really tired but it is just sooooooooooo much fun! I got a little sad last week though because my "set Daddy" Nic Cage wrapped. It was so sad. We had or last scene together on Monday and he wrapped on Tuesday last week. We exchanged gifts though. How cool is that????????? Nic Cage gave ME a gift. I was so excited! It is soooooooooo beautiful and very special. I will always treasure it. I think I'm definitely going to wear it to one of my premieres.
Guess what? We started filming the MAJOR, MAJOR action parts of the film last week and it is SICK! I am doing the craziest things. I have to wear a harness for some of my scenes and that reminds me of when I was shooting The Amityville Horrorand wore a harness for the scenes when I walked on the roof. It's very hard and pretty uncomfortable but I'm just so glad to be doing all my action stuff. The stunt guys are very cool. They are very patient with me when I'm trying to learn this hard action stuff. Peng and Brad and Max and Jai are great! You really cannot even imagine how awesome these guys are! Maybe one day I'll be able to do some of the stuff they do. They have made the scenes so that I can do them and I am so happy about that. We worked for a few hours on Sunday blocking one of the huge action sequences and I have to tell you, I can't even believe it. This movie is going to keep everyone on the edge of their seats!
I got to see Mark Millar the other day onset. He is the guy who writes the Kick Ass comic. He is so cool. He has this funny Scottish accent. I can't do the accent but I wish I could. I do a pretty good British accent but Scottish is just crazy! I still can't believe what a cool role he wrote for an 11 year old. Everyday, I just get to go to set and do all this stuff that is like something Angelina Jolie would do in a movie. I have wanted an action movie for a while now but I never thought I would really get one. Chris Mintz Plasse is back in London and I get to see him in make up some. He is a cool guy. I have been working with the stunt team a lot since Nic wrapped and I have not gotten to see a lot of Aaron. I see him in make up some but I miss seeing everybody. We're working 2 units on this film so sometimes we don't see too many people in the cast for a few days at a time. It's pretty cool that they can shoot a whole lot more by doing 2 totally separate units. We even have a different second unit director named Tim and he is so nice. Matthew of course sets up all of the stuff for both units and it is pretty cool to see how all this works. I have never done a film with this much action so it's all pretty new to me. I'll keep you updated as things progress.
I had the day off today and I went to Kensington Palace to see the Princess Diana exhibit. It was kinda cool. I love to have tea there. Well, I gotta go now and go to sleep. Tomorrow I do some pretty intense training and have more wardrobe fittings for my stunt suit. I can't wait till yall can see it! Hit Girl is Cool, ya! Oh, I almost forgot, Halloween is coming up but I'm working on that day. I wanted to have a costume party. Oh well, maybe I'll just dress up and go to set as something weird, Ha! My bro's watching The Hillson the computer and I wish I could watch it too but I'm going to bed instead. I'll watch it tomorrow.
Always Remember.............................YALL ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
