The woman once known as Sarah Pezzini is now working on the wrong side of the law.
Former "Witchblade" actress Yancy Butler has decided that she's ready to kick ass again, joining the cast of Jeff Wadlow's sequel to Matthew Vaughn's 2010 comic book adaptation. Butler starred in the first "Kick-Ass" as Angie D'Amico, wife of the ruthless mob boss Frank D'Amico, played to rocket-powered heights by Mark Strong. She'll reprise that role for "Kick-Ass 2," with her son Chris continuing his masked mayhem as Red Mist, soon to be known by a much more fearsome name.
Speaking of Christopher Mintz-Plasse's homicidal character, the actor spoke with Collider recently about what fans can expect from the "Kick-Ass" sequel. "I don't want to ruin anything, but it's kind of like 'Warriors' meets 'Kick-Ass,'" he teased. "That's like the theme for this. It's gonna be intense."
Mintz-Plasse also addressed the age of co-star Chloe Moretz, who has grown up quite a bit since the pint-sized Hit-Girl was last seen. "I think she's going into 9th grade which is really smart," he said. "They didn't keep her 11 as she was in the first one. They kind of aged it up a bit."
