No one is more upset about Kick-Ass 3 being dunzo than Kick-Ass star, Chloë Moretz.

Moretz, who played “Hit Girl” in the comic book hero flick, recently spoke to Digital Spy revealed another sequel wasn't happening and blamed Kick-Ass 2’s weak performance on piracy: 

“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. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theater.”
She also added: 
”‘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."

It’s important to note that the only reason Kick-Ass got a sequel was because of the large profits from Blu-Ray and DVD sales. Piracy kind of cuts into that.

Take this summer’s The Expendables 3, which didn’t break box-office bank, probably because the movie leaked online before the film premiered.

17-year-old Moretz will be just fine considering the success of this summer's YA favorite, If I Stay, and promising upcoming films like Laggies, with Keira Knightley, and Clouds of Sils Maria, with Kristen Stewart.
