Lyndsy Fonseca talked to IGN (via CBM) about returning for Kick Ass 2:

I read it. I think I read the latest draft — I don't think there's been a new one — and it was fantastic. It actually plays really well with how Chloe has grown up a little bit, but she's not yet a young woman. I loved it. I think it's really good. Jeff] seems incredibly nice though. He's very excited, and I'm excited. Matthew [Vaughn]'s producing it, but I think it will be kind of cool to have a new point of view for the sequel.
