Lionsgate has released a brand new behind-the-scenes documentary from the upcoming comic-book movie Kick-Ass.
Kick-Ass tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name – Kick-Ass – assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
Matthew Vaughn (Stardust, Layer Cake) directed the movie from the script that he wrote with Jane Goldman.
Kick-Ass opens April 16, 2010. [source EmpireOnline]
