Kick-Ass 2 will be 'incredible'

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has said he can't wait to get cracking on Kick-Ass 2.

The actor is reprising his role as a costumed high-school hero for Jeff Wadlow's highly-anticipated sequel, which is expected to be released next year.

Aaron, who can next be seen on screens in Anna Karenina, told Collider: "It's incredible. There's some really interesting journeys our characters embark on. I can't really go too deep into it, but I'm really excited about it. We've got a great cast."

Aaron revealed some of the more shocking scenes from the original comic book hadn't made the final script for the movie, called Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall.

"There are some really disturbing things in the comic book which we're not going to put in, I think for the better. Yet it's got all the elements there and probably more, it's got a bit of narrative and story to be told, so it's great."

British actor Enzo Cilenti is joining Aaron and Chloe Moretz in the sequel, according to Variety.

Bradford-born Enzo, 38, is known for his supporting roles in Johnny Depp film The Rum Diary, Armando Iannucci's In The Loop and The Fourth Kind alongside Milla Jovovich.
