The Last Stand beauty Genesis Rodriguez, pictured, is in final negotiations for the female lead in Kevin Smith’s horror pic Tusk, says Variety, who also has more on the plot details.
“The 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.”
Smith will write and direct, with Justin Long and Michael Parks also starring.
Demarest Films will finance and produce. Demarest’s Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson will produce alongside Shannon McIntosh for Smith’s Smodcast Pictures banner. Demarest’s David Greathouse and Jennifer Schwalbach are exec producers.
Production is set to start next month.
