Lorne Michaels, Danny McBride and Jody Hill are among the film’s producers, Relativity Media will finance, and the screenplay is by Emily Spivey, Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. Read More »

Jeff Wadlow‘s superhero sequel, Kick-Ass 2, is one of the many sequels being released in 2013 people are forgetting about. When he’s put up against Superman, Iron Man and Thor, it makes sense though. Kick-Ass is just a guy with no powers and the will to stop crime. The little superhero that starred in Matthew Vaughn’s 2010 film returns this year with most of the surviving cast returning (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse) along with several new characters, played by the likes of Donald Faison, John Leguizamo and Jim Carrey.

Originally announced to roll film in September of last year, Dumb and Dumber To has been pushed back, but will still go on, according to Peter Farrelly. Read More »
