Illustration for article titled Kick-Ass Casting Gives Us All A Little McLovin

Christopher Mintz-Plasse (better known as McLovin from Superbad) is in negotiations to be the evil Red Mist in the new ultra-violent movie adaptation of Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass comic. The comic takes place in "the real world," and is about a comic book geek who dresses up as a superhero, fights crime and becomes a celebrity. It's very "My Dad just doesn't understand - so I will pummel you to death with this night stick." It's hard to imagine Mintz-Plasse in such a violent movie, but if anyone can pull it off, it's McLovin. Click through for more Kick-Ass news. While there are no pics of the Red Mist, just yet I can tell you that he's an angry teen who is related to the city's biggest mobster (hello perks) plus he's a bad guy. In other news, Chloe Moretz from Dirty Sexy Money has been cast in Kick-Ass. Described as a "potty-mouth" by THR who is mean with a ninja sword. The movie begins filming this fall.
