Chloe Moretz will have an on-screen romance in 'Kick-Ass 2'.
The 16-year-old actress' alter ego Hit-Girl grapples with more grown-up themes in the sequel to 2010's superhero comedy and Chloe revealed there is definitely love in the air for the potty-mouthed teenage crimefighter.
She hinted: "There's going to get a bit more romance, a much more grown-up Mindy Macready, someone who's questioning themself and whether they are a villain, assassin or a vigilante and a hero. So there's a lot of tormented inner self…It's interesting.
"It's been amazing revising the character and showing her more grown-up and more adult and more put-together. It's been a lot of fun."

"So Kick-Ass needs to reflect that. There has to be something dramatic at the end, he cannot do this for the rest of his life."
