The studio heads can't be too happy about this!
Jim Carrey took to his Twitter account yesterday to criticize the excessive use of violence in his upcoming movie Kick-Ass 2 and explain how he's had a change of heart since filming wrapped and the horrific Sandy Hook massacre happened last December.
- "I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence. I meant to say my apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart," he wrote to his 10.8 million followers.
The funnyman stars as the violent Colonel Stars & Stripes in the flick. The character is a Christian vigilante who teams up with a hero and a hit girl to take out criminals. The movie is an adaptation of a comic book, and creator Mark Millar posted a message to his own website after Carrey's comments were made public.
- "As you may know, Jim is a passionate advocate of gun control, and I respect both his politics and his opinion, but I'm baffled by this sudden announcement as nothing seen in this picture wasn't in the screenplay eighteen months ago. Yes, the body count is very high, but a movie called Kick-Ass 2 has to do what it says on the tin," Millar wrote in defense of the film's subject matter.
It would have been better if the Ace Ventura star just kept his mouth shut!
