Exclusive: Kick-Ass Hit Girl

11 year-old super-assassin arrives

Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass is, we are assured, a different sort of superhero movie, one with actual injuries and some serious amounts of violence. And it's one we're looking forward to immensely, so we're delighted to bring you a first look at the movie's Hit Girl, aka Mindy.

Played by Chloe Moretz, Mindy's a pre-teen assassin who's been trained by her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) since the age of four. "Think Jodie Foster, Natalie Portman and Uma Thurman rolled into one. She's an 11 year-old and she's the ultimate assassin. She kills, I think, 20 people in a minute."

The film's out in late 2009. You ca see another image from the film and hear more from Vaughn in the new issue of Empire, out tomorrow. Did we mention it's particularly ace this month? Cause it totally is.
