Kevin Smith is currently finishing off his new horror film, Tusk. That is the film about a man being turned into a walrus by a mad scientist….just let that sink in.
Smith seems to be on a horror roll that he began with the excellent Red State, as he recently spoke another horror film he would like to make…Helena Handbag.
Granted, this time the plot of the movie concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus – which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY’S gonna wanna make that movie. At all. And I know this going in, so I won’t be heartbroken if it never goes beyond the script. But… if the script is funny enough? Who knows? That walrus movie seemed pretty daffy and far-fetched until we were standing on the ‘TUSK’ set bringing that shit to life four months and change after first making it up in episode 259 of SModcast.
Sounds crazy good, but Smith did go on to say it could end up being a musical.
Would you want to watch a Helena Handbag film?
