Kick-Ass gets release date

by

Pencil in April 16, 2010 as a day you’re going to be busy.  That’s the date Lionsgate is planning on releasing Matthew Vaughn’s  Kick-Ass movie adaptation.

Lionsgate acquired North American distrib rights to “Kick-Ass” shortly after Comic-Con. Pic, starring Nicolas Cage and Aaron Johnson, is based on the bestselling comic by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. Storyline revolves around a young boy who inspires a subculture of wannabe superheroes who have no powers.

I’m sure after the government takes all my money on the 15th, I’ll be ready to kick some ass of my own, so this looks like a perfect release (and possible viral marketing campaign) for the film.
