Despite director, Matthew Vaughn, announcing that he would be bringing us another installment of the Kick-Ass franchise, our beloved Chloe Grace Moretz will not be joining him.
The 21-year-old had her breakthrough role in the superhero film (and its sequel) where she donned a violet wig and black mask to bring the vigilante Hit-Girl to life. But, the actress has now said that she will not be taking part in the future reboot.
Speaking at a panel discussion at the Provincetown Film Festival, Chloe said, “I love the franchise. I think the first movie was really, really special. I wish the second one had been handled in a little bit of a different way. Because I think we were all kind of looking forward to something a little different than what happened with it all.”
Kick-Ass 2 earned $60.8 million at the global box office, compared to $96.2 million by the original.
So is Chloe definitely out of a possible Kick-Ass 3?
“As much as I love the character of Hit-Girl, I think she lives and survives in Kick-Ass, and I kind of want to keep her there. I kinda wanna keep everyone’s mind in Kick-Ass. So I don’t think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, at least I don’t think with Hit-Girl in it…”
Well, we’ll always have the comics…
