Universal is in talks with writer Matthew Vaughn to produce and distribute Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.

The director wrote and helmed the first film, which followed Dave Lizewski, an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so. The project grossed $96 million worldwide on a $30 million dollar budget. He also wrote the script for this project, which adapts not only the sequel, but also the spinoff Hit-Girl. The spinoff is due to hit stores next month.

Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are all expected to return for the sequel.

Negotiations are beginning soon with a possible September start date.
