Millar Says Kick-Ass 2 Has Been Greenlit, Tony Scott Is “Going After” Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt

Mark Millar was a guest on today’s Richard Bacon show on BBC Radio Five Live. Here’s what he said about the supposedly imminent sequel to Kick-Ass:

The estimate is [Kick-Ass] will do 100 to 150 million on DVD based on the American sales, you know, so it’ll end up making a quarter of a billion on a 28 million investment. So It should be okay. So the sequel’s greenlit, we can go ahead and do the follow up now, you know. The first made so much compared to what it cost it would be crazy not to.

Millar then went on to out Matthew Vaughn as a friend of David Cameron and a director of some Conservative Party Political Broadcasts. Shortly after that he agreed with Bacon that comic books were readymade storyboards for films. It was only a few more seconds before I pulled out my headphones and stared at them with intent to hurt.

After I put them back in, Millar was talking CLiNT. I simmered down quite quickly.

Before a news break, Richard Bacon put it to Millar that the film of Nemesis will star Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. His response:

That’s who the director’s going after, yeah.

Eventually, they came back around to discussing the film again. Millar said:

Tony Scott, brother of Ridley Scott… I just got a call from him, literally about a month ago… it was one of those very surreal things. This is a $150 million budget… he said “Who do you fancy for it?”… I said “I dunno, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp” so he said “That’s good, we’ll give them a call”.
