Filming on Matthew Vaughns’s Kick-Ass began on Saturday in London, and graphic novel writer Mark Millar spoke to Splash Page about his experience shooting in a sewage factory.
“I was expecting a lot of glamor, and now I smell of poo,” laughed Millar. “We were shooting from early this morning till [after midnight]… I’m too tired to have a shower, but I must have a shower.”
On set for Saturday’s shoot was Nicolas Cage, who plays Big Daddy, a former cop who trains his pre-pubescent daughter, “Hit-Girl” (Chloë Moretz), to become a lethal crime fighter. Millar added that despite Cage’s stature as a movie star and the, uh, crappy circumstances of the first day, “he never complained once during shooting. He’s such a good guy. Everybody loved him.”
I suppose Nicolas Cage is used to to knee deep in crap, especially after The Wicker Man.
