Millar: Kick-Ass 3 will be the end

Mark Millar is working on a third Kick-Ass film

Mark Millar has revealed he is working on Kick-Ass 3, and hopes to get it made within the next two years.

The Scottish writer of the comic books insisted the third instalment of the film franchise, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, will be the epic finale.

"It's the conclusion of the Dave Lizewski story. I'm almost done, I've nearly finished the book," he said.

"It's the end. It's weird. My agent keeps saying to me, 'We're making a lot of money here. Let's do Kick-Ass 4 and 5'. But I said, 'No, I've got to stay true to my principles'."

Mark revealed the ending will be "very logical", saying: "I want to end it where I want to end it, because when I first put this together in 2006, I had this ending and it's the very logical conclusion. To milk it beyond that either means I've got greedy or I've come up with some brilliant new idea, but it probably pretty much ends with Kick-Ass 3. I've always seen it as a trilogy."

The first film, which came out in 2010, was directed by Matthew Vaughn, while the sequel, which is out now, saw Jeff Wadlow take the reins.

"I don't think we can wait that long because the youth of the characters is really important. Hit-Girl's going to be a mum in the next one if we don't hurry up," Mark joked.

"I reckon if we do this one, we should try and do it in the next couple of years - it depends on schedules though because these guys are all really busy. But we need to move fast with it."

All three stars have already said they would be glad to reprise their roles for a third film.

Overcoming adversity will win the admiration of a powerful executive. If you continue to work towards your goal, you will be offered an impressive job. Getting handsomely rewarded for your communication skills will be gratifying. When one door closes, another will usually open.More
