Movie Ruminations

Has Jim Carrey been confirmed for Kick-Ass 2?

Jeff Wadlow, director of the upcoming Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall has teased us about the casting of the Colonel.  Last week it was revealed that the production was attempting to sign Jim Carrey (The Mask, A Christmas Carol) for the role of the Colonel.  Now, Wadlow has sent a very revealing tweet, which follows:

6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then!

Ok, I know it’s not much to go on, but two of the last three words of the Tweet are very telling.  ‘Alrighty then’ was Carrey’s catchphrase in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Carrey’s breakout role.

Due to the long holiday weekend there has been no confirmation from the studio.  That is expected to change today.  I will keep you posted when we know for sure if this movie got even cooler by this casting.  Wadlow had this to say about the character of The Colonel:

“He helps galvanize the team of misfit super heroes assembled to fight evil”

Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall begins filming shortly.
