With the big screen adaptation of Mark Millar’s yet-to-be-concluded comic Kick-Ass still moving along, Empire Magazine now brings fanboys a new image from the film to wet their proverbial beaks. Meet Chloe Mortez (My Friends Tigger & Pooh), she’ll be taking on the role of Mindy Macready (aka Hit Girl) in the new film.
In case you’re not familiar with the comic, Hit Girl is an 11-year old assassin who has been trained to be the ultimate killing machine since age 4 by her father Big Daddy (played in the film by the multifaceted Nic Cage). Though the character in the film looks pretty different from her comic counterpart, remember that we’ve played the “that doesn’t look Millar’s book” game before and ended up with Wanted, which wasn’t all that bad.
Kick-Ass is being adapted to film by writer Jane Goldman (Stardust) with Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake) handling the directing chores. Kick-Ass the movie hits theaters later this year. Kick-Ass the comic book is availible at your local comic book store now.
