Writer and director Jeff Wadlow has been on a bit of a hot streak lately. He recently signed a deal to write X-Force, and will be directing the action film Go Fast for Sony. Before those projects come to fruition, however, there's the much-anticipated Kick-Ass 2. Wadlow was picked by Matthew Vaughn — director of the original Kick-Ass and a producer on the sequel — to take over directing duties and the movie's been a big part of Universal's splash at Comic-Con this year. We sat down with Wadlow to talk about how he hit that careful balance between comedy and violence, what it's like crafting a sequel to a well-known original, and what his hopes are for the upcoming X-Force.
