You write the comic and I’ll write the screenplay.’ We did it at the same time. I just felt good about it—my spidey sense told me it was a film I would enjoy to make and e...

who love these comic books with your secret of knowing what happens when nobody else does. I guess so, yeah. [Laughs] What made you want to play this part? I kind of just came across it by pure luck and coincidence. I was in the right place and the right time. I met the director, Matthew Vaug...

KICK-ASS posite to James McAvoy in Wanted getting ripped for the role. My character made me be anorexic. You went the Christian Bale route. And I didn’t have to do any crazy training. Chloe [Moretz, Hit-Girl] had to do three months. She used to fight with bamboo sticks and samurai swords a...

KICK-ASS SNEAK PEAK Matthew Vaughn on set fl anked by star Aaron Johnson and comic relief co-star Clark Duke off. It’s a very, very tough role for a ten year old girl to do. Luckily, I found Chloe Moretz, who did it as well as anyone could have. How did you direct her? I’ve read in real ...
