Young British Stars of Kick Ass 2

Filming in London is just coming to an end on Kick-Ass 2, the much anticipated sequel to 2010 cult favourite Kick-Ass.

Chloe Moretz, now aged 15, returns as Hit Girl, alongside fellow returnees Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as villain Red Mist, and they are joined by some young British stars.

Daniel Kaluuya (represented by Troika), plays Black Death, part of the gang of villains led by 'The Mother F*cker' (formerly Red Mist). Daniel starred in BBC Three's The Fades, and will also be seen in up-coming crime thriller Welcome To The Punch.

Augustus Prew (represented by The Rights House) plays Todd, replacing Evan Peters in the role of Dave Lizewski's (Aaron Johnson) best friend. Augustus stars as Alfonso in The Borgias and will next be seen alongside fellow young Brit Lucy Boynton in Copperhead.

Newcomer Tanya Fear (represented by Identity Agency Group), in her first feature film role, plays Harlow, one of the mean girls.

16 year old Ella Purnell (represented by The Rights House) plays fellow mean girl, Dolce. After playing a young Keira Knightley in Never Let Me Go, Ella has since starred in features Intruders, and Ways To Live Forever, and was most recently out in Alaska filming indie feature Wildlike

Along with Brooke (played by 16 year old American actress Claudia Lee), Harlow and Dolce are the mean girls, perfectly manicured, well-dressed and real girlie-girls with acerbic tongues.

Here's the official synopsis:

When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world's first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she's forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world's first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there's only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.  

Directed by Jeff Wardlow for Universal Pictures, Kick-Ass 2 is due for release in mid- 2013.
