Director hints Jim Carrey will be Colonel in Kick Ass sequel

Carrey’s name has been swirling around the project for weeks and now Jeff Wadlow appears to have let fans know the rumours are true – by using the one of the funnyman’s most famous movie lines in revealing he has his Colonel character.

In a post on, the director writes, “6 days till we start shooting… and we officially have our Colonel. Alrighty f’n then!”

Carrey’s Ace Ventura pet detective character’s go-to phrase was ‘Alrighty then’.

The sequel will reteam Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse from the original, while John Leguizamo has also signed on for the film.
