/Film Interview: Mark Millar, Writer/Producer of Kick-Ass

/Film Interview: Mark Millar, Writer/Producer of Kick-Ass: "


Mark Millar is one of the most exciting people working in the entertainment industry today. Millar’s Wanted was made into an action film that grossed over $300 million worldwide and his upcoming film Kick Ass (based on a comic book that he wrote, which was then adapted for the screen by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman) is one of my favorite films of the year so far.

I had the chance to speak with Millar recently, and while I’ve always had a mental image of him as a wildly outspoken comic book writer, loaded with enthusiasm and hyperbole, I was pleasantly surprised to find that he was soft-spoken and absolutely charming. We chatted about how movie studios hated the script for Kick Ass, his thoughts on Christopher Nolan’s work on recent superhero films, his aversion to violence and obscenity, why he doesn’t think his work will ever be adapted to TV, and what it’s like to make a film outside the studio system. You can listen to our interview below, or hit the jump to read some highlights.
