The future of the third instalment in the Kick-Ass series has never been certain, but now Hit-Girl wants out, the comic book based franchise is in even more jeopardy.

In an interview with Digital Spy, 17-year-old Chloë Grace Moretz revealed that she thinks it's time to toss her violet wig and eye mask combo to one side. The young actress, who was just 13 during her first turn as Hit-Girl, explained;

Sadly, I think I'm done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don't think there will be any more movies.

Moretz then went on to slate so called fanboys who pirate their favorite movies instead of coughing up to see them at the cinema. The [If I Stay](movie:612375) actress explained that she feels that the poor performance of [Kick-Ass 2](movie:39248) has made Kick-Ass 3 highly unlikely;

You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn't help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie - but because it didn't do so well, we can't make another one.
If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It's all about the numbers in the theatre

It seem like [Kick-Ass 3](movie:400219) probably won't get a chance to shine on the big screen thanks to poor performance and piracy issues, but which other young actress could fill Hit-Girl's foul mouthed, ultra violent shoes if Moretz is out?

After watching the video above for inspiration, see if you agree with my four potential new Kick-Ass Hit-Girls!

Maisie Williams

Maisie Williams is no stranger to ultra-violence thanks to her long-standing role as Arya Stark in [Game of Thrones](movie:817617)!

This pint-sized actress measures up perfectly for the petite Hit-Girl's small stature at just 5 foot tall and already has some impressive acting accolades under her belt.

Also, look at that squishable face!


Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld blew us all away with her Oscar nominated performance in the American Western True Grit back in 2010.

Since then, the 17-year-old actress has starred alongside Kevin Costner in the action thriller [3 Days to Kill](movie:768004) and has also taken on a sci-fi dystopia in [Ender's Game](movie:7483).

Surely these are all relevant qualifications for some serious ass kicking?


Amandla Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg is best known for her role as Rue in [The Hunger Games](movie:44466) and it would be great to see this talented 15 year old get to kick some serious ass instead of being tragically stabbed!


Elle Fanning

Elle Fanning is a bit of a wild card, but the thing that makes Hit-Girl so endearing is the juxtaposition between her sweet face and gutter mouth.

Admit it, we would all love to see the ethereally beautiful 16-year-old Elle Fanning spit out the word c**t before disembowelling some putrid bad guy!


Who do you think would make the best new Hit-Girl?
