Director Kevin Smith is returning to the world of horror with his next project, Tusk.
During a recent podcast, Smith announced that he will direct the off-beat horror film. Production is expected to begin on September 15.
Described as an “unsettling” tale without the politics of his last effort in the genre, Red State, Tusk concerns a man who was once lost at sea with a walrus.
When the man returns home, he puts out an ad for a roommate. The only thing this man asks is that his roommate wear a walrus costume (he’s obviously missed his walrus pal) and act only like the animal.
Smith developed the script with his long-time associated Scott Mosier. Smith says he would ideally like to see director Quentin Tarentino in the lead role of the film.
