While Kick-Ass and Red Mist haven’t really changed a lot between Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2, Hit-Girl is like a whole new person. In the first film, she’s a foul-mouthed killing machine who loves nothing more than her father and justice. In Kick-Ass 2, she’s forced to bury that spirit to assimilate to the social life of high school. Instead of fighting crime, she deals with sleepovers, dating, makeup and more.

Nussbaum disappointed many geek fanboys by going on to direct the John Hughes-esque pre-teen comedy Sleepover. 27-year-old first time feature film screenwriter Chad Creasey’s biggest credit is assisting uber-screenwriter John August on his Sundance indie film The Nines. The movie will hit theaters on September 21st 2007. Click on the poster to the right to enlarge and check out the trailer after the jump.
