Announced earlier this year, writer-director Kevin Smith is making a return to horror with an indie project called Tusk. Today, Variety brings word that Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge, Identity Thief) is set to play the film's female lead opposite Justin Long and Michael Parks.

Described as an "unsettling" tale likened to Tom Six's Human Centipede, 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 and act only like the animal. Somewhere along the way, the film takes a darker turn.

Smith developed the script with Smodcast pal Scott Mosier. Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson will produce through Demarest Films with Shannon McIntosh producing through Smodcast Pictures. David Greathouse and Jennifer Schwalbach are executive producing.
