Although he’s “threatened” to retire, polarizing filmmaker Kevin Smith has a slew of projects in development. His body-horror film Tusk is set for release this fall and now Screen Daily is reporting that a spin-off called Yoga-Hosers is due to start filming later this year.
“Like Tusk [Yoga-Hosers] sparing out of a podcast,” Smith told Screen.
“There are two characters in a convenience store in Tusk that you see for five minutes, very much like Ronsencrantz and Guildenstern.*
“I’ve built a whole movie around them and I have brought one of the other characters from Tusk back.”
Love him or hate him, you can’t deny the balls on Smith. He’s planning a follow-up to a film that hasn’t even come out yet – that takes stones.
Smith also has a “Creepshow-like horror anthology” called Come To The Krampus in the works, which has already been pre-sold by distributor XYZ Films.
What say you, readers? You guys into Kevin “Snootchie Bootchies” Smith getting all up in the horror genre?
