Big Daddy (Nicholas Cage) fights crime with kick-ass superheroes without superpowers! KICK-ASS is based on the comic book of the same name written by Mark Millar and illustrated by John Romita, Jr. When Mark pitched his story to Matthew Vaughn, director of the blockbuster film Stardust, the latter was impressed and immediately agreed to direct the movie and write the screenplay with Jane Goldman, also his co-writer of Stardust. Vaughn and Goldman were keen that their movie wouldn’t simply be a carbon copy of Millar’s book hence the back-story of Nicolas Cage’s character Big Daddy.
See the cool gang of four do some nasty stunts in KICK-ASS as it hits theaters on April 16. I'm excited to see the film. It premieres today at SM Megamall! The movie is released by Viva International Pictures.
