Chloë Grace Moretz Covers "Glamour"

Sneak Peek new images of teenage actress Chloë Grace Moretz aka 'Hit-Girl' from the "Kick-Ass" movie series, in the June 2016 issue of "Glamour" magazine:

"The way I look at it is, I’m trying to start conversations," said Moretz. "You might not agree with my opinions, and that’s great—I would love to talk about it."

"With movies like 'Kick-Ass', 'Carrie' and 'Let Me In', I was able to push boundaries at a really young age. Now that I’m able to get projects funded, curate scripts, and make movies, it means a lot to me to go against gender norms. My biggest thing now is making gender-equalizing movies, where you can put a male actor or a female actor in that role, and it would work the same way.

"The word 'feminism' meant something very different when I was 13. I had four older brothers and a single mom, and we were providing for each other. It was a collective effort between men and women. So for me, it was about familial equality.

"I like to push myself as an actor and an artist, and directing, writing, producing, cinematography—all these are things that I haven’t accomplished yet. They’re big life hurdles that I’ve set out in front of me, and they’re just waiting for me to take them on headfirst. So why not?..."

Meanwhile "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will be a "Kick-Ass 3" with Moretz reprising her role as the female vigilante 'Hit-Girl':

"I love the idea of there being 'Hit-Girl' movies, " said Millar. "We have a crazy idea for it, and every now and then I think, is this too crazy? 

"Because it's kind of insane. Would the world accept this? 

"It makes 'Kick-Ass' look like 'Finding Nemo'. 

"It's funny, because Hit-Girl was slightly pre-dated by about a year, before those kick-ass action heroine characters...

" 'The Hunger Games' and those kinds of things came along.

"And now I feel is a great time for her, so it could be really interesting."

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million theatrical world-wide, selling over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. 

"Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although those numbers are not blockbuster, there is a dedicated fan-base including director Quentin Tarantino, that supports Chloë Grace Moretz' portrayal as young female vigilante 'Hit-Girl'.

"I'd always planned it as three books and three movies," said Millar about "Kick-Ass".
