Universal Pictures is in discussions to make a sequel to superhero comedy Kick-Ass, with production possibly beginning this summer, it has emerged.
Mark Millar, creator of the source comic book, had insisted earlier this year that Kick-Ass 2 was on the cards and now according to Deadline.com, Cry Wolf director Jeff Wadlow will direct his own script for the sequel.
Matthew Vaughn is unable to return due to his commitment to directing a follow-up to X-Men: First Class but is likely to produce alongside Millar.
The biggest question marks remain over the cast, with Deadline reporting Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse will all need to negotiate new contracts with the studio after their star-making turns in Kick-Ass.
Moretz, who'll be seen in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows this week, has an especially busy schedule, with the remake of Carrie her next big commitment.
