It was rumored last week in various sources that Kevin Smith has been teasing us with the fact that he “may” be doing a horror movie as his next feature film. According to numerous attendees at Q+A session across the country (to promote Clerks 2), he has confirmed the rumor, but nothing has been stated thus far about whether it will contain that “Smith touch”. Today one of our readers claimed to be at another Q+A in Jersey where he got the skinny on what type of horror film it will be. With all of the rumors as of late, please, please let me clarify that this is a rumor and nothing more until officially confirmed (understand me message board haters?)…

“Kevin Smith is seriously doing a horror movie as his next project.
I went to the Clerks showing in Red Bank, NJ tonight where Kevin Smith did an hour-long Q&A before the show. One kid asked him about the horror movie rumor and he confirmed it as being true. From what I can remember, he said, “Yes, I am doing a horror movie next. It’s entitled ‘Jersey Girl 2.’ No, I’m kidding, but yes, I am doing a horror movie next.” When asked if it would be a comedy horror, “No, its going to be straight horror. I feel after 7 comedies its time to take a left turn and do a straight up different movie, in this case horror. Its gonna have all of the horror you’d expect, blood and guts…and tits. No, no, no, not that, I’m talkin about man tits. What? What’s so bad about man tits? I have tits! They’re sexy! And hairy…but, yeah, I’m doin a horror movie.” And finally, when asked as to when, he said that it “wouldn’t be for a year or two. I just got done makin a movie, I’m not rushing into another. Probably two years.”
