After it’s great reception at San Diego’s comic con this year it is no surprise that Kick-Ass has found it’s distributor with Lionsgate Pictures.
In a deal that is described as “big,” the mini-major has committed to a wide 2010 release.
Pic is based on a comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. about a comic-obsessed teenager who decides to become a real-life superhero despite his lack of any superpowers. Cast includes Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and “Superbad’s” Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
U.S. distribs got their first peek at a rough cut of “Kick-Ass” on July 28, a few days after the fanboys at Comic-Con saw clips of the film and gave it their blessing.
Vaughn’s Marv Films shingle and Brad Pitt’s Plan B produced and privately financed the project.
Do you think Kick-Ass will have as much success as his other recently adapted story, Wanted did in theaters?
