Curious about Kevin Smith’s new film Tusk? Well, this image from the Charlotte, North Carolina, set of his now-filming flick featuring Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense) and Genesis Rodriguez in a walrus costume will just serve to pique your interest further.
Osment (pictured below) plays Teddy, whose best friend and podcast co-host (Justin Long) goes missing in the backwoods of Canada. He joins forces with his friend’s girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez; also pictured below) to search for him.
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.
