In a story from Lionsgate's Twitter page, it looks like the studio will be releasing Kick-Ass on April 16, 2010.

Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name -- Kick-Ass -- assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).

The film is based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s series of comic books.


It looks like The Expendables, which was supposed to come out April 23, 2010, will now come to theaters on August 20 of that year.

Sylvester Stallone is set to star in and direct The Expendables. Stallone, who also wrote the script, will be joined onscreen by Jason Statham and Jet Li. The movie follows a team of mercenaries on a mission to overthrow a South American dictator.
