Mark Millar Says He Has an Idea for a “Hit-Girl” Spinoff Movie

Though “Kick-Ass 2” didn’t do too well in theaters and is largely considered a poor sequel, comic creator Mark Millar might not be done with the cinematic world of Dave Lizewski. Or, more specifically, Mindy McCready.

Speaking with JoBlo (via Comicbook.com), Millar said he has been kicking around an idea for a Hit-Girl spinoff solo film. In fact, he references more than one.

“I love the idea of there being Hit-Girl movies,” Millar said in an interview, “it has to be the right story though. We have a crazy idea for it, and every now and then I think, ‘Is this too crazy?’ Because it’s kind of insane. Would the world accept this? It makes ‘Kick-Ass’ look like ‘Finding Nemo.’ Matthew [Vaughn] and I have chatted about it in the pub, and it’s fine in the pub, but when we’re being interviewed two years later, is it going to be terrifying? So I don’t know, it seems a fun thing, though.”

Millar wrote a “Hit-Girl” solo series in 2012, and there was talk of a Gareth Evans directed film some years back, but that never came to fruition. However, Millar thinks the time could actually be perfect for the character to get a solo movie considering the boom in female-led action films and franchises.

“It’s funny, because Hit Girl was slightly pre-dated by about a year, before those kick-ass action heroine characters like ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘Hanna’ and those kinds of things came along,” he said, adding, “And now I feel is a great time for her, so it could be really interesting.”
