New villain for Kick-Ass 2

Production sends out casting call for Mother Russia

Kick-Ass 2 seems to be setting the scene for Christopher Mintz-Plasse to take over main villain duties as the embittered Red Mist, but now it appears he'll have company, with the production putting out a casting call for the role of Mother Russia.

Mother Russia is a physically imposing bodyguard to Red Mist in the comic books, and according to the official callout procured by Moviehole, it sounds as though physical attributes will be paramount in casting this one.

“Classic Villain," begins the description. "An ex-KBG officer who is now being paid by the week by Chris to fight in his group — she is easily the most skilled and just a ruthless killer in general. Described as a ‘roided-out female bodybuilder, she needs to be extremely physically imposing and muscular, though still come across as feminine. As tall as possible (6ft and over only). Indicate height on submission.”

Sounds like a bit of an ask to us, although presumably the height issue could be ironed out with a bit of perspective trickery, meaning all that would be required would be an imposing, athletic physique.

Meanwhile, Mintz-Plasse has been discussing his character's transformation, and has revealed his relief at the fact some of his more lurid excesses haven't made it into the script.

"It’s crazy!" he gushed at Comic-Con. "It’s unbelievable. I’m the Motherfucker now, in this one. It’s incredible! There was one moment in the comic, where the Motherfucker rapes someone, but I don’t think we’re doing that. We’re doing a different aspect of it, and it’s a really funny version of it, but there’s no rape. I’m really happy about that."

Kick-Ass 2 has yet to receive an official release date, but is set to begin shooting this September ahead of a likely 2013 release.

      Gina Carano probably would be well suited to this role.

      @ben, that was my first thought, but at 5ft8 i doubt she would get it unfortunately. I personally can't think of anyone that could fill the role.

      What about the woman from Game of Thrones? The one who plays Brienne? Or not feminine enough?

      @ Heisenberg yeah that is a good point. Being that short would be difficult to get round.

      Chyna maybe? She's not all that skilled in acting since all she did was WWE Wrestling, Photo Shoots and Porn. But she fits the bill of a tall, heavily busty and muscular lady who can do physical performances.

      @bencobra, i still think they could work Mother Russia around Carano so it suits her without losing too much of the character itself. But Chyna would be awful, have you heard her voice?

      Chyna would've worked during her peak run in WWE (before she seemingly melted her face), while Beth Phoenix could possibly pull it off from the current roster. However, sticking within the wrestling realm, I'd say the best one to go for would be Isis the Amazon (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Isis-The-Amazon/279938992034690). Legit 6'9" tall and strong as funk; some black hair dye and you have the perfect Mother Russia in my opinion.

      There is 6ft, muscular, strong girl, skillied in martial arts, out there. Here name is Maria Wattel ! Bodybuilding girl from the Netherlands, www.mariawattel.com . This would be an awesome one for that role. Needs to be physically imposing, tall, huge muscles, etc. and she is the one that can bring that! -Xander
