Chloe Moretz hinted for months at a "Kick-Ass" sequel. Jane Goldman, who co-wrote the script with Matthew Vaughn, said the duo probably wouldn't pen the next script, but would oversee the project as producers. And now, Christopher Mintz-Plasse says he'd be on board! With all the rumors and waiting it feels like "Arrested Development" and "Anchorman 2" all over again, but it worked out splendidly for those projects!
The "Superbad" actor did say there's "no word yet," but wishing and hoping has worked for us in the past. I mean, "The Avengers" is happening, isn't it? Plus with all the hype Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," "Thor 2," "Iron Man 3," and "Captain America 2," what better year to begin production on a second "Kick-Ass" film?
Also in April 23, 2012's Twitter-Wood, Simon Pegg tweets an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo from the set of "Star Trek 2," Tom Hiddleston geeks out over Kermit the Frog and the stars are loving "Game of Thrones" and "Think Like A Man."
Director Edgar Wright turns 38 today! The man who brought you "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "Hot Fuzz," and "Shaun of the Dead" will always be celebrated by countless fans, but today the stars who admire him and have worked with him are celebrating even more than usual!

Comedian Doug Benson also announced the special day, writing on Twitter, "It's @edgarwright's birthday today! But I don't do b-day shout outs, so... here we are. #WhatElseIsInTheNews" Click the cut to see more birthday wishes for Wright from Jon Favreau, Chris Mintz-Plasse, and Eli Roth.

Twitter-Wood chatter was so lively in the feed today, I just want to let it speak for itself. "Paper Heart" director Nick Jasenovec prodded "Superbad" nerd Christopher Mintz-Plasse about holding up the sequel while director Joe Lynch and Kat Dennings were tweeting away with some "Twilight" observations.
Along with a few more details from the periphery of the "Iron Man 2" set and Tyrese Gibson's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" release tour, there were plenty of peaks to be had if you were watching for updates.
