Here we go again.

Bet you didn't see THAT coming, laddies and lassies!

But this is one of several big surprises planned for next year and you'll hear a bit more about this in February when we start to release details. What is it? Who is it about? Well, that's all a secret for now, but I learned a lot from Kick-Ass and love having the same creative freedom I have with comics when I work in cinema. I never want to be a studio ***** and go in there pitching for them to love me. The closest I came to this was a couple of calls regarding Superman, but pretty much none of my plans ever revealed as I didn't like the idea of anyone nicking them.

Similarly, I don't like the idea of asking for funding and justifying scenes with the money-men so I'm doing what Matthew Vaughn did with Kick-Ass and just making it outside the system with private investors. The financing is all secured and the movie stands or falls on how good I can make it, doing what Matthew did and just selling it once completed.

As you can imagine, I couldn't be more excited. More as it happens, but this might just beat out War Heroes and American Jesus as my follow-ups to the Wanted and Kick-Ass movies. Have two other pictures about to go into development (and Wanted and Kick-Ass 2, of course), but I think you need to scare the Hell out of yourself every once in a while and something totally new like directing should do the trick.

The big question: Are you allowed to direct without wearing a baseball cap? Is it the modern version of the 70s BEARD?

All that mention of investors and money is making him sound like he was born in Hollywood.

This confirms what we had all already figured out: that MM is writing for Hollywood nowadays. I only wish Hitch had gone with him so we could still refer to them as Hitlar.

Maybe he'll start working with Michael Bay, then we can call him Baylar. It doesn't have the same connotations but it is catchy, and the two of them would be a great fit for each other.

There would be so many explosions in that movie.

I don't like Millar's original stuff as much as his Marvel stuff. :(
