No release date or distributor has been announced yet for the film, but a “Movie Book” for director Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass is already on sale at Amazon.com. Here’s how the book, hitting stores on September 22, is described:
“Kick-Ass”, the bestselling comic book series by Mark Millar (writer of the graphic novel “Wanted”, which became a smash-hit movie) and artist John Romita Jr., is now an eagerly awaited film, and this is the essential companion book! What would happen if you tried to be a superhero? What would happen when an ordinary kid in a spandex costume comes face-to-face with the criminal underworld? Comic book fan and high school student Dave Lizewski, aka the self-styled vigilante Kick-Ass, is about to find out…and it’s going to get really, really violent! With Mark Millar as your guide, “Kick-Ass: The Movie Book” gives you the lowdown on the making of the film, with eye-popping art from the original comics, script extracts and hundreds of movie photos! It is suitable for adults only.
The action-adventure stars Nicolas Cage, Aaron Johnson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Mark Strong, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz.
