Last month Lionsgate bought the rights to distribute Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass and they have now set a release date: April 16th 2010.
With the date set hopefully Lionsgate will begin the marketing machine and release a trailer in the upcoming weeks.
Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan with a few friends and who lives alone with his father. His life is not very difficult and his personal trials not that overwhelming. However, one day he makes the simple decision to become a super-hero even though he has no powers or training. Originally created by Mark Millar (Wanted), one of the world’s most successful comic book writers, KICK-ASS stars Nic Cage, Mark Strong, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Evan Peters.
