Whether you love him or hate him, you simply have to respect Kevin Smith for the direction he’s currently taking with his career, where he’s decided to make movies that only he can make.
One of those movies is of course the upcoming Tusk, which is the first in a trilogy that will also include his very own version of Jaws. Say what?!
The fine folks over on /Film picked up on the announcement at Comic-Con, where Smith revealed the first trailer for Tusk. On his panel, he said that the crazy film about a dude who turns a podcaster into a walrus will be the first in his ‘True North Trilogy,’ followed up by the previously announced Yoga Hosers and a movie called Moose Jaws.
Smith describes the latter film as being “Jaws, with a moose,” and says it will feature much the same cast as Tusk. The only thing he really said about the movie is that there will be a scene in it of a killer moose eating a little girl, which is enough to pique my interest.
So awesome to see Smith stepping outside of his comedy comfort zone and delving deep into the horror genre. As someone who loved Red State, I welcome all these whacky upcoming projects with open arms!
