Kick-Ass Soon to Have a Distributor

Kick-Ass Kick-Ass

Though Kick-Ass is one of the more memorable films from this year's Comic Con, the comicbook adaptation from Matthew Vaughn is still lacking a distributor. Fortunately for the production, the positive buzz has begun to catch the interest of three prominent studios: Lionsgate, Paramount and Universal.

Kick-Ass Screening to Legit Distributors

It's always nice to see the same studios who wouldn't support you in the pre-production phase come back to help you distribute. So is the case for Kick-Ass. Known for profanity, hyper-violence, and assassinations committed by characters who can't even drive (let alone drink) yet, the film was racy enough to have studios shy away. Requests to at least make the characters older were ignored thankfully, and now the gamble of remaining faithful to the source material may soon pay off.

While Sony was the studio initially interested in the project, it looks like they won't be coming back to the project. Instead Vaughn is counting on Lionsgate, Paramount or Universal. If I were a betting man, the odds would look something like:

Lionsgate: 2 to 1 (most likely)
Universal: 4 to 1
Paramount: 10 to 1

Kick-Ass does not have a theatrical release date.
