Deadline is reporting that Jim Carrey is being courted by Universal to play a showy supporting role in Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, the Jeff Wadlow-directed sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s crazy superhero movie. The character is called The Colonel. This role is presumably Colonel Stars, an ex-Mafia member turned vigilante who forms Justice Forever alongside his brother Lieutenant Stripes.
The sequel brings back Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Nicolas Cage. Carrey is a big fan of Matthew Vaughn and his original Kick-Ass film. However, take this far from a done deal so take it with a grain of salt.
