Mark Millar would like you to know that, despite rumors that his various movie projects are in trouble – with Jane Goldman confirming that she would not write a Kick-Ass sequel, and Nemesis being mentioned as possibly being put on hold for a time – everything is going just fine:
How many times do we need to go through this? [Matthew] Vaughn is producing [Kick-Ass 2] and Jane was taking about this 2 weeks ago in an interview. He’s got a new director and is doing a George Lucas, guiding the whole thing as he and I work on The Secret Service (which we’re writing at the moment). Could we stop with the scare-mongering please?
Also, Nemesis is fine. Fox deal was just signed off shortly before Christmas and there is no story there beyond an idiot with a blog who follows every tweet I write and whoever writes to me. As Joe Carnahan said himself in all the video interviews last week, Nemesis is doing fine.
Wanted 2 and War Heroes both fast-tracked as reported last November by Universal (google it), Supercrooks screenplay done and ready to get moving after Nacho finishes Windows and Vaughn just bought the rights to Superior. All is well.
Elsewhere in the same thread, Millar says that Kick-Ass 2‘s director will also write the screenplay, and that the project is in good hands, adding “Now RELAX. Empire Strikes Back worked out fine.” Reading between the lines, clearly what Millar is actually telling us is that we should expect Kick-Ass 3 to suck and feature Ewoks.
