    Jane Goldman Not Working On 'Kick-Ass 2' Script; Says Matthew Vaughn's Next Film Is Something Else

    Sorry Mark MillarThis weekend a Daily Mail report casually mentioned that screenwriter Jane Goldman ("Kick Ass," "Stardust," "X-Men: First Class") was busy at work penning the "Kick Ass 2" screenplay (from her bed, no less) and the story picked up traction in fanboy circles. Sorry, apostles, but Gol...

Now, some of the members of the cast have been talking about the film as well, with Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Kevin Bacon (villain Sebastian Shaw) and ...

Heralded as a back-to-basics prequel set in the '60s, the leaked image -- apparently it wasn't ready for public consumption, but once it's out it's out -- seemed to be antithetical to the idea of a group of mutants first finding one another and eventually becoming part...
