'Kick-Ass 2' Director Responds to Jim Carrey

LONDON - "Kick-Ass 2" director Jeff Wadlow is defending his film after star Jim Carrey chose not to promote the action comedy because of its violence.

LOS ANGELES - College filmmakers were using fake guns to shoot a robbery scene at a suburban Los Angeles coffee shop when the movie took a scary twist that wasn't in the script. Eight police officers were descending on the masked actors. The police were real, with very real guns drawn, and had no idea this was a movie. "Drop the gun! Drop it! Drop it!" one officer yells on an audio recording police were carrying. One of the actors immediately let go of his fake assault rifle. But another held onto his replica handgun, forcing officers to make a life-or-death choice. An officer knocked the gun from the actor's hand and handcuffed him, dr... more
