Jim Carrey set to join Kick-Ass 2 after all?
Jeff Wadlow and Mark Millar offer the biggest hints yet that Jim Carrey has signed up to Kick-Ass 2...
By this time next week, the eagerly-awaited sequel to Kick-Ass will be before the cameras. The key cast are all returning, with Jeff Wadlow taking over the director's chair from Matthew Vaughn.
You might recall that, last month, it was suggested that Jim Carrey was in line for a cameo role in Kick-Ass 2, as The Colonel. This story was then fairly quickly shot down, but it might just have been shot down prematurely. On the Twitter accounts of Wadlow and Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, there's been a fair bit of hinting going on that Carrey is indeed set to appear in the film.
Wadlow Tweeted "6 days till we start shooting... and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f'n then!"
Then Millar added a further hint: "he lives with 200 raccoons and parrots, owns the mask of Loki and named by spielberg as a genius."
You don't have to dig hard through the filmography of Jim Carrey to work out just where those hints are pointing. Official confirmation has not been forthcoming thus far, but surely it's now just a matter of time....
