Kevin Smith Planning ‘Tusk’ Spin-Off: ‘Yoga-Hosers’

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?

    I’m down for whatever the heck Mr. Smith wants to do. Jersey Girl notwithstanding, the man hasn’t let me down yet.

    “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.”

    Really that happens all the time in Hollywood doesn’t it. There are already Marvel and DC movies scheduled as sequels going out as far as 2018. Just because it’s from “the Clerks guy” doesn’t prove anything out of the ordinary.

    • Nicholas Venable

      One guy doing cheapo horror mostly on his own is quite different from multi-billion dollar studios planning wave after wave of samey tentpole movies. Not that I’m saying Smith has balls for this, but still.

    i’m not a fan nor a hater of Smith’s but, at least as of now, this movie just looks/sounds really stupid. the pic above does nothing to quell this feeling. i hope i’m wrong and that the movie is good.

    It’s called “Comes The Krampus.”

  • Drakula Teef

    He also has a new film in the works called Helena Handbag with an awesome plot: Mankind teams up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a rapturing giant Jesus.
