‘Kick-Ass 2′ Nabs A Release Date and Morris Chestnut, Who Will Also Join ‘The Hive’

Deadline is reporting that Morris Chestnut has signed on for Kick-Ass 2 and The Hive.

In The Hive Chestnut, the lucky bastard that he is, will be playing the love interest to Halle Berry.

From Deadline:

The Hive focuses on a 911 call center: a hub of frenzied activity where desperate phone calls come in. When a call comes in from Hyden (Abigail Breslin) a kidnapped teen who is stuffed in a trunk, a veteran operator (Berry) takes the line, using her considerable skills to keep the girl calm, while trying feverishly to find the kidnapper before it’s too late.

In addition to being the boy toy for the timeless beauty that is Halle Berry, Chestnut’s character is a cop.

In Kick-Ass 2 Chestnut will play the guardian of Chloe Grace Moretz’s Hit Girl. Doesn’t seem like she needed much guarding in the first flick, so I assume this is more of a legal thing.

In other news Exhibitor Relations tweeted that Kick-Ass 2 will be hitting theatres June 28, 2013.

    Dude has a great agent as he continually gets movie and TV work while being a pretty crappy actor. Good for him.
