And the (cast) hits keep coming. ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ is looking to add actress Lindy Booth (who you might remember best from her role in Zack Snyder‘s ‘Dawn of the Dead’ remake) to the roster in the brand new heroic role of — wait for it — “Night Bitch.”

According to THR, Lindy Booth is in talks to play Night Bitch in ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ directed by (gulp) ‘Cry Wolf’ helmer Jeff Wadlow. ‘Kick-Ass’ director Matthew Vaughn is producing through his MARV Films banner, while Universal will distribute. Booth also previously starred in ‘Cry Wolf.’

Night Bitch is a character who, along with many other normal, powerless citizens, takes up the cause of Kick-Ass and joins a league called “Justice Forever.” Naturally, the criminal baddies they’re up against prove to be a bit more than these ordinaries bargained for and they’ll need to muster all their strength to fight back when the bad guys they’ve been messing with call for revenge.

‘Kick-Ass’ actors Aaron Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse are reprising their roles as Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and the newly-minted Red Mist, respectively. In the first film, Kick-Ass and Hit Girl took down Red Mist’s dad, leading the bratty teen to vow revenge on the duo.

Donald Faison (‘Scrubs’) and John Leguizamo have also joined the cast of ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ which starts filming in September.
