Christopher Mintz-Plasse says a sequel to the superhero comedy move "Kick-Ass" is in the works, telling San Diego Comic-Con 2012 that "Kick-Ass 2" appears as if "it's going to happen."
Christopher Mintz-Plasse, best known as Fogell, or McAnalovin', in the Judd Apatow comedy film "Superbad," told a Comic-Con audience that shooting is expected to start on 'Kick-Ass 2' in September, the Associated Press reported.
Mintz-Plasse, 23, played Chris D'Amico, the son of a mob boss, and D'Amico's superhero alter-ego, Red Mist, in 2010's "Kick-Ass," based on a comic-book series of the same name.
The "Superbad" actor made the announcement during a panel discussion centered on "ParaNorman," an animated film set to be released Aug. 17, the AP reported.
Mintz-Plasse lends his voice to the film, along with Kodi Smit-McPhee and Anna Kendrick, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in "Up In The Air."
Rumors of a "Kick-Ass" sequel have been circulating, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse told screenrant.com that "Kick-Ass" screenwriter Mark Millar has plans for a lewdly named sidekick for Red Mist.
Millar "wants something to be The C----, he wants the name The C---- somewhere in the comic. And he wants to change my name to The Motherf----. So I become very evil, which I'm game for," Mintz-Plasse told the website. "But who knows, because Mark talks, and we won't know until he puts it on paper, what he's going to do. He could come up with a totally genius new idea that we've never heard of."
Mintz-Plasse told cinemablend.com that he had a blast shooting "Kick-Ass."
"That was a lot of fun," he said. "The first act is very relaxing, and then in the second and third it's more dramatic, more action packed. But once my father goes away, I realize that Kick-Ass betrayed me, I just get straight-up evil in the last 20 minutes. [Director] Matthew [Vaughn] wanted me the evilest I could ever look."
