Kick-Ass 3 is Unlikely Because of Piracy, Says Chloe Grace Moretz 0


There is no denying that one of the high points of the Kick-Ass movie franchise is Chloe Grace Moretz and her character Mindy McCready AKA Hit-Girl. Unfortunately, in spite of the comic book series that it was based on ending on a 3rd installment, the movie looks like it’s done and the chances of the 3rd series being adapted is slim due to the 2nd’s poor box office take. Moretz points to piracy as the likely culprit for the poor sales and the studios’ lack of support for another go:

“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character,” says Moretz of her iconic role as Hit-Girl. “Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies.”

“You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number-one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures.”

“We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie – but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one. If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It’s all about the numbers in the theatre.”
