Chloe Grace Moretz, who plays the (formerly) pint-sized vigilante in Kick-Ass, has recently talked to Movie Magic, in which she revealed that her character has changed in the intervening years and will be slightly different in the sequel, Kick-Ass 2.
“What Jeff Wadlow and I really wanted to improve was the real heart of it,” says Moretz in an interview with Movie Magic (via ComicBookMovie), “because I wanted to show that this girl didn’t have a father anymore and how much that affected her.”
“She’s really confused and going through the self-torture of, ‘Am I killing people because this is what I was raised to believe was a good thing, or am I just murdering people?’ I wanted to show this inner pain and struggle, and the fact that she’s lost her only family, her father.”
Moretz has also revealed that Hit-Girl’s fighting style will be slightly different this time around, going for more melee and minimizing the use of guns:
“I also wanted to make the action a little bit different,” she continues. “So we basically scrapped the guns. I do use guns a little bit in the movie, but we basically do hand-to-hand combat and it’s just a lot more hands-on.”
