Fresh off an acting break to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Haley Joel Osment – the kid from The Sixth Sense – has landed a pair of indie comedies, one of which is the Kevin Smith-helmed Tusk, Deadline reports.
In Tusk, Osment will play Teddy, whose best friend and podcast co-host (Justin Long) goes missing in the backwoods of Canada. He joins forces with his friend’s girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) to search for him.
This was the first time I’ve seen the movie referred to as a “comedy”, which fascinates me a bit. I always thought Human Centipede 2 was a comedy (I’m not being facetious), so I’m curious what that film with Smith’s comedy would look like. I am definitely intrigued…
Production begins next month in North Carolina and LA.
