Mark Millar talks Wanted and a Kick Ass sequel

Wanted and Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar has mentioned that a sequel to Kick-Ass is already under way.

The creator discussed his suprise at the success of last year’s actioner starring Angelina Jolie:

Wanted made $350 million. So that was the thing that opened the doors. I didn’t expect that. For some reason I just assumed, “Oh, yeah, this will come out and do OK. If I get another movie at some point, wonderful.” But what happened very quickly was that several of the titles got picked up to be made into movies.

Discussing Kick-Ass , the directed added a sequel is already being plotted out. We’re planning it, because all the actors are quite young and we have to make it relatively quickly. So we’ll definitely do that inside the next 18 to 24 months.
