We Keep Getting Older, But Assassins Stay the Same Age


Boy, oh boy, would Wooderson ever have a field day with this one! Empire has an exclusive promotional photo of actress Chloe Moretz in costume as Hit Girl, an 11-year-old super-assassin featured in director Matthew Vaughn's forthcoming film adaptation of the comics series Kick-Ass. The comic, written by Mark Millar and illustrated by John Romita Jr, is about a hapless teenage vigilante who uses the Internet to spread word about his crime-fighting activities. Though we cannot deny the coolness factor of a tweenage girl with a big gun, we would be more excited to see a shot of Red Mist, a teen hero being played by Vulture favorite Christopher Mintz-Plasse!
