KICK-ASS 2 not next for Matthew Vaughn
Fiery-headed scribe, and frequent Matthew Vaughn collaborator, Jane Goldman (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, KICK-ASS) dispelled any rumors that she is currently working on a script for the sequel to Vaughn's KICK-ASS. You know, rumors like the ones purported by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, who has claimed that the film would start shooting this Spring.
Via Twitter, Goldman stated:
"Saw a few erroneous reports today that I'm currently writing Kick Ass 2 script – sorry if anyone's disappointed, but not true. Currently writing for 2 other projects, then on to lovely Matthew V's next thing (right now, looks unlikely to be KA2) when X-Men post-prod' ends.
So, thus it appears that Goldman and Vaughn will be working together again following FIRST CLASS but it will not be another comic book-based film. And can you blame the guy? I know I for one am excited to see him return to something that will be hopefully an original effort. Well originalish, since all four of the director's films have been based on a book or comic book.
This does however raise the question; what is this new, super secret UNTITLED MATTHEW VAUGHN FILM PENNED BY JANE GOLDMAN?
