Jim Carrey has clowned around many sets with his humor, but with his new role in Kick Ass 2, he’s slated to be on the more serious side as he teams with the misfit superheroes. The film is currently shooting and new pictures featuring the comedic actor has hit the internet. In the new pictures, Carrey is seen looking fierce in his army commando gear and apparently ready for battle.
A few weeks ago, director Jeff Wadlow posted a tweet mentioning that he has “officially” cast Carrey for the role in Kick Ass 2. In the tweet, Wadlow stated that Kick Ass 2 has found its Colonel and added a familiar Carrey quote. The enthused director tweeted, “6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then! @ChloeGMoretz @MintzPlasse @donald_faison #kickass2″
Kick Ass 2 is a film, which will feature an ensemble cast of misfit superhero characters who will fight crime. The gang will go up against The Red Mist, an enemy character who built a team of his own “supervillains”, in order to defeat both Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl.
Carrey is part of an impressive cast including Donald Faison, Morris Chestnut, Aaron Johnson, Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Nicolas Cage, Olga Kurkulina, and John Leguizamo.
Kick Ass 2 will be released in the summer of 2013.
