Lionsgate has launched the official website for the comic book adaptation Kick-Ass. You can check it out at IAmKick-Ass.com. Unfortunately, the site doesn’t boast any content at the moment but it does feature a count down clock for the film’s trailer debut on MySpace next week.
The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn (Stardust, Layer Cake) and hits theaters on April 16, 2010. Check out the official synopsis below!
A twisted, funny, high-octane adventure, director Matthew Vaughn brings KICK-ASS to the big screen. KICK-ASS tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There¹s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).
