Mark Millar Wanted Sequel and 'Kick-Ass' update

Mark Millar creator of the series Wanted and Kick Ass has spoken about a possible Wanted sequel as well as developments surrounding a screen adaptation of one of his other works, 'Kick-Ass'.

Millar said on his message board the other day,

Wanted 2 already being planned and they've asked me how I can develop some of the other stuff from the book into the sequel. We'll see what box office is like at the weekend, but everyone knows this is going to make a LOT of dough

This is what was said about his series Kick-Ass becoming a film,

"The casting's all been done, and everything's all in line now with that. There's two big names attached, which I can't mention so we can get on the cover of 'Variety.' And now we've got everyone. The kids who show up at the end of issue #3 - we just cast the girl, and that was a really tricky one because we needed to find someone who could do martial arts stuff."

From cinematical,

The story of Kick-Ass is a little different from your average tale of a caped crusader. Instead, Kick was told through flashbacks about a 15-year-old kid named Dave Lizewski. Dave is just a regular kid with no special powers or abilities, but he makes the incredibly dangerous decision to become a superhero. Early speculation has Matthew 'Layer Cake' Vaughn handling the script and directing duties, but so far nothing has been confirmed -- and Millar has kept quiet on that front.

I haven't seen Wanted yet, but may be seeing it tonight (Tuesday). But be sure to check out my review once my eyes have feasted on it's glory. I will weigh in on my thoughts about a sequel then.
