News on Mark Millar's Kick Ass movie - Mclovin?

Matthew Vaughn, who directed Stardusthas managed to get the cash from private investors to get the Kick-Ass movie on the roll as the studios felt it was just too violent. It follows a a 15-year-old boy named Dave Lizewski who attempts to become a real-life superhero. The catch is that he has no powers or any of the stereotypical reasons for choosing to fight crime.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse, aka McLovin from Superbad, will play a character known as Red Mist who is the angry teen son of a mobster who tries to find and uncover Kick-Ass' identity. Also starring alongside of Mintz-Plasse is Chloe Moretz, who will play a "ferocious, potty-mouthed 11-year-old who chops down crime thugs with a ninja sword."

Still no word on who will play the lead role.
