Kick-Ass has a UK distributor!

Good news for everyone who has been slavering at the thought of seeing Matthew Vaughn's comic adaptation Kick-Ass.

The film has been nabbed by Focus Features International for the UK, Australia, Latin America and around Europe, which means we'll get to see it via Universal.

For those who haven't been paying attention, it adapts Mark Millar's twisted tale of Dave Lizewski who, despite lacking super powers or any real discernible skills, decides to live his dream of being a superhero.

"Everyone at Focus and Universal has been interested in this bold and brilliant film for some time, as Matthew Vaughn is one of the most talented international filmmakers working today," Focus Features co-chief executive Christian Grass told Variety.

One question - if you've been so interested for so long, why not offer Vaughn funding when he asked every studio for help before he made it?

Still, we're just glad it'll now be hitting our cinemas. There's no word on a release date yet, but with the US schedule set for April, hopefully it'll be sometime early next year.
