Heat Vision reports that Vaughn has "handpicked" Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) to direct the film, which is of course based on the Mark Millar-John Romita, Jr. comic series. Vaughn scripted and will produce the follow-up -- but not direct as he did on the original -- as he's busy with X-Men: First Class 2.
Kick-Ass 2 will be based on the comic-book miniseries of the same name as well as the spinoff book Hit-Girl, which hits next month.
Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Chloe Moretz (Hit-Girl) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) are all expected to return for the sequel, which has a September production start set.
