Kevin Smith is down in North Carolina working on his new horror film titled TUSK. It should sound familiar, we’ve talked about it a little here. As Smith likes to do he has assembled an interesting cast and being a fan of of Mr. Smiths work I always look forward to his story telling abilities. All this is leading to the tonight’s news from the set which comes in the form of a picture from the set.
Obviously that’s director Smith flanked by by a couple of the films stars Haley Joel Osment and Genesis Rodriguez. I know what you’re wondering, what is TUSK about? Here’s what we know.
Financier and production company DEMAREST FILMS (Machete Kills, A Most Wanted Man) is underwriting and producing visionary director Kevin Smith’s next film, the audacious and utterly terrifying Tusk.
Tusk stars Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard, A Case of You) and cult favorite Michael Parks (Red State, Django Unchained). Smith directs from his own script, which evolved from Episode 259 of his long-running podcast with Scott Mosier, the award-winning SModcast. Tusk’s horror story follows a podcaster who sets out to interview an eccentric, reclusive old seafarer, only to find himself a plaything in the gruesome plot of a deranged killer.
Demarest’s Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson produce alongside Shannon McIntosh for Smith’s SModcast Pictures banner. Demarest’s David Greathouse and Jennifer Schwalbach are executive producers. SModCo’s Jordan Monsanto and Chris Parkinson are associate producers.
Much more soon!!
