Chloe Moretz played Hit-Girl in the “Kick-Ass” franchise, and she did it perfectly. But Chloe Moretz says that she’s done with Hit-Girl, the role that made her famous in the fanboy world.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Moretz talked about “Kick-Ass 2” and why it did poorly at the box office. Here’s what she said:
“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character. 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.”
“Kick-Ass 2” made $28 million in the U.S. and $32 million overseas, with a budget of $28 million.
I’m sure there were a lot of people hoping to see a “Kick-Ass 3” or a solo Hit-Girl movie but it looks like we won’t be getting it.
Do you guys think piracy is to blame or was it just the movie itself?
