XYZ Films (The Raid, The Raid 2, Killers) has partnered with Demarest Films and A24 on Kevin Smith’s epic new horror film, Tusk, coming aboard to handle all international sales rights, Bloody Disgusting has learned.
The film, also written by Smith and born out of one of his immensely popular SModcasts, stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks. Demarest (Machete Kills) financed and produced Tusk in partnership with New York-based distributor A24 (Spring Breakers), who will release it wide in the third quarter of 2014. XYZ will be introducing the project, currently in production, to international buyers at the European Film Market in February.
“Tusk is a modern-day monster movie that follows a journalist named Wallace (Long) who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.”
Tusk was produced by Sam Englebardt, William D. Johnson, and David Greathouse for Demarest Films and Shannon McIntosh for Smith’s SModcast Pictures banner. Jennifer Schwalbach is executive producer.
