The sequel to Kick-Ass has been rumored for years, but Matthew Vaughn is finally doing it.

The good news is much of the original cast is coming back, along with new additions. Hit the jump to get more details.


The first big piece of news is Christopher Mintz-Plasse who played Red Mist in the first film is coming back in a much larger role. The film will once again focus on his battle with Aaron Johnson’s titular character Kick-Ass.

Chloe Moretz, and Nicolas Cage are returning, with new additions of John Leguizamo, Donald Faison and Yancy Butler.
