Universal is interested in bringing Jim Carrey (Liar Liar, Ace Ventura) on board for Kick Ass 2. He would reportedly play Colonel Stars, a founding member of Justice Forever who recruits the heroes to his cause. Deadline is reporting that Carrey was a fan of the Matthew Vaughn directed original. Jeff Wadlow is signed to direct the sequel based on the Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. Comic.

Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall is scheduled to be released on June 28, 2013, with Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass), Chloe Grace Mortez (Hit Girl), Nicolas Cage (Big Daddy), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) all set to return.

Were you a fan of the original? Will this be the comic book movie to get Carrey off the hook for Batman Forever?

      Now of we can just figure out a way to get Cage out. I think Carrey is just crazy enough to pull it off.

      I thought Jim Carrey died. I can't really remember the last thing of his I liked. Maybe Yes Man or Fun With Dickface and Tea Leoni.

      There is no way he'll sign on to this film. A hard R-rated comic book movie is a tough sell to someone perceived as being so family-friendly.
