Olga Kurkulina Is Definitely Mother Russia in 'Kick-Ass 2'

– by Philip Sticco

Rumors have been flying about, but Bleeding Cool has the definitive answer: Olga Kurkulina will play Mother Russia in Kick-Ass 2.

Here's a statement from Kurkulina:

"I competed against other candidates from America, Switzerland and Holland. I spent three weeks in the casting, which took place at Pinewood studios. At the end, the director told me that I was getting a role. This was a difficult time psychologically and physically.

"Many people worked hard and from the heart to help me. On August 30th we fly to Toronto for a month’s shooting on location, and then we go back to London where stunts will be filmed at a local studio.

"Now I’m train hard, learning new movements for attack and defense working with professionals on my acting and speech training."

Here is a pic of Mother Russia:

 

And Kurkulina:

I'd say she looks the part.

Kick-Ass 2 is now filming under the direction of Jeff Wadlow. It will hit theatres June 28, 2013.
