Kevin Smith, who is currently in post-production on the horror film Tusk, is talking about upcoming projects again and one he has mentioned – but sounds so down the road it might not even happen – is Helena Handbag.
It’s a project he’s writing, but one he doesn’t intend to get to – if he can ever find the money for it – until after he shoots Clerks III in May.
Here’s what he had to say…
“The idea is to, once again, take an episode of SModcast and turn it into a movie,” he says. “…[T]his time the plot of the movie concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus – which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY’S gonna wanna make that movie. At all. And I know this going in, so I won’t be heartbroken if it never goes beyond the script. But… if the script is funny enough? Who knows?”
Who knows, indeed. We’ll keep you posted if this one ever happens. In the meantime, stay tuned for a trailer to Tusk. Smith said a preview will hit sometime around Sundance in January.
