Could Jim Carrey be tempted to join the line-up for the Kick-Ass sequel?

He's been off the big screen since Mr Popper's Penguins last summer, but Universal is hoping to tempt Jim Carrey back onto it with a role in the sequel to Kick-Ass.

Kick-Ass 2 is set to start filming shortly, with Aaron Johnson reprising the title role. We already know that John Leguizamo is going to be joining the cast, too. But might Jim Carrey? It's being reported that Universal wants Carrey in the role of Colonel Stars in the movie, a superhero with a militaristic theme to him.

Carrey is reportedly a fan of the original film, and we'll see in the weeks ahead if he's tempted to join the sequel. Director Jeff Wadlow is set to roll cameras on Kick-Ass 2 shortly, ahead of its release next year.
